Abstract


The objective of this study was to investigate the mechanical and physical properties of bamboo-based fiber reinforced composites (BFRC) that were formed by using loose bamboo bundles (LBB) and phenol formaldehyde (PF) adhesive. Three resin content levels (10%, 14%, and 18%) and seven different assembly patterns were selected when the bundles were glued together. Board performance testing showed that the bond quality was improved by increasing the resin content. The board face layers impregnated with 18% resin content and core layers impregnated with 14% resin content had the best mechanical properties, and the boards impregnated with 18% resin content had the best dimensional stability properties. The mechanical and physical properties increased with increasing resin content and were affected by the assembly pattern. Various performance indices of the BFRC met the requirements of the China national standard GB/T 20241 (2006).
