Abstract : FaRez B-260, a water dilutable furan resin, can be used as a binder for particleboard. Board properties obtained were comparable to those obtained with commercial phenolic binders. Board costs can be significantly reduced by using low cost ammonium lignosulfonate as a resin extender. Also to be considered is that furan resins are derived from renewable agricultural residues, hence will be relatively unaffected by future actions of the OPEC countries.
