This study aims to analyze the potential of poppy (Papaver somniferum Linnaeus) husk for manufacturing wood-based particleboards. On these basis three layers particleboards were produced and physical, mechanical properties, formaldehyde emission and limitation of oxygen index were analyzed. The results indicate that it is possible to produce particleboards from poppy husk and pine wood by using urea formaldehyde adhesive. Particleboards which are manufactured by using poppy husk up to 25% provide both physical and mechanical requirements in European Norm (EN 312). In addition, poppy husk particles reduced the formaldehyde emission and increased the fire retardant property for the manufactured particleboards. (C) 2015 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
