SCATOLINO, Mário Vanoli; PROTASIO, Thiago de Paula; MENDES, Rafael Farinassi  e  MENDES, Lourival Marin. THERMAL STABILITY OF Pinus oocarpa AND MAIZE COB PARTICLEBOARDS. Ciênc. agrotec. [online]. 2015, vol.39, n.4, pp.348-354. ISSN 1413-7054.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1413-70542015000400005.

Agricultural waste materials are generated in large quantities in Brazil. These can accumulate and cause serious environmental problems. One of the most commonly generated wastes in the brazilian agricultural culture is the maize cob. Being lignocellulosic in nature, the maize cob can find use as the raw material in the production of particleboards mainly concerned with furniture making. Therefore, studies regarding its thermal stability and fire resistance would be interesting. The aim of this study was to evaluate the combustibility and thermal stability of the particleboards produced from maize cob and Pinus oocarpa wood. The percentages in which maize cob was associated with Pinus oocarpa were 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%. The panels were produced using 8% urea-formaldehyde and 1% paraffin. The pressing cycle parameters included: temperature 150 °C, pressure of 3.92 MPa during 10 min. The combustibility curve analysis showed that the panels containing 25% content of maize cob had higher resistance to combustion. In general, the thermal stability decreased as the wood substitution by maize cob increased.
