Lignocellulosic residues resultingfrom agricultural activities and urban centers cause pollution. A possiblesolution to this problem is to combine these residues with woody plants toproduce particleboards. The purpose of this study was to evaluate decayresistance, coating and burning properties and the change of color caused byaccelerated weathering of particleboards manufactured with a combination of 3woody species used for commercial reforestation in tropical areas Cupressus lusitanica, Gmelina arborea and Tectona grandis, pineapple Ananascomosus leaves from the crown and the plant PL, empty fruit bunch of Elaeis guineensis EBF and tetra pakpackages TP. According to the results, the mixtures of T. grandis and EFB were classified as moderately resistant andother mixtures woody species and PL or TP were classified as slightlyresistant. The finish performance test determined that the mixtures with TPpresented the best performance, followed by the mixtures with oil palmcomponents and the mixtures composed of pineapple leaves. Regarding lacquer consumption, nodifferences were found between the mixtures. The combustion test determinedthat particleboards with TP and EFB showed the highest resistance tocombustion, while pineapple presented the lowest resistances to combustion. Inthe accelerated weathering exposure test, the mixtures of the three species withTP showed the best performance in accelerated weathering. Contrariwise, themixtures with pineapple leaves showed the lowest resistance to acceleratedweathering. Oil palm particleboards presented lower resistance to weatheringthan TP, though higher than pineapple leaves’ resistance.
