Abstract

Indonesia has grasslands 8.5 million Ha or approximately 4, 47% of land area. Grasslands will be growing over the opening of the forest becomes vacant due to logging or forest fires. Reeds only utilized by the public as the roof or forage. This research examines the potential of reeds to be made into particle board with a simple and inexpensive method. Reed Root already cleaned then dried up to a maximum of 10% moisture content and then the reed root are cut to size with 1.7 mm. Reed Root then press using a heat press machine with pressure 10 kg/cm2 to 15 kg/cm2. Particle board from the root of the reeds do physical test standard SNI 03-2105-2006 ie test dimensions, the density of the test, a test of water content, and test development. Physical properties characterization results of particle board-sample showed the value of density, water content, and thickness swelling measurement were 0, 87 g/cm 3, 10 …
