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.
