Cellulose is the most abundant, structural, biological organic compound on Earth which is widely used in paper and textile industries. In this project work, the blend of compressive character of Urea-Formaldehyde Resin with addition of Cellulose is tested. Cellulose can be extracted from dried plant by alkaline treatment (mercerization), followed by neutralization with acid; product of which undergoes bleaching to produce pure form of cellulose. Urea Formaldehyde Resin can be prepared by heating the formaldehyde in paraffin oil bask and adding urea to it until it’s completely soluble. Composite of this Urea-Formaldehyde (UF) Resin with the thus produced Cellulose fibers are prepared by simply adding the calculated amount of cellulose to UF resin and letting it to set. Characterization of pure cellulose is
carried out by XRD and FTIR, whereas UF/Cellulose Composites are characterized by FTIR and compressive strength test. By the results of FTIR and compressive strength test, it is concluded that addition of Cellulose fiber to Urea-Formaldehyde Resin increases the compressive strength of the composites.
