Abstract

Recently, it has become more and more important to minimize environmental pollution. As an attempt to alleviate the environmental problems in materials, new wood based materials without using any adhesives and binders have been investigated. From this point of view, wood powder can be useful because it can be solidified and bonded under optimum pressure and temperature. This is because the component of wood, especially lignin and hemicelluloses, becomes soft and fills among components during heating and compacting. In addition, the powder form causes effective bonding of each particle. From the viewpoint of powder forming, Near Net Shape forming actually can be performed using plastics and metal powder. Therefore, the development of this
