Abstract

The use of chrome-copper-arsenic (CCA) treated timber for the manufacture of cement particleboards was studied to determine the mix design that provides the best mechanical strength. The cement particleboards showed a maximum in strength for a composition of cement-wood ratio of 1.5 which corroborates existing results in the literature. The thermal conductivity of the cement particleboard was lower than most building material but slightly higher than that of insulating materials. The thermal conductivity showed a variation with the water content indicating its suitability for use as a thermal regulator. Leaching studies revealed that the CCA leached from non-decontaminated CCA treated chips is high and decontamination will be required. The results showed that recycling of decontaminated CCA treated timber into cement particle board can constitute an economical solution for its disposal.
