|Abstract:||This study presents particle boards made from low cost agro-wastes (date palm leaf and jute stick). Particle boards from jute stick, date palm leaf and their blends offered higher sound transmission loss, higher thermal insulation and lower swelling than plywood. Date palm leaf particle board showed highest strength, whereas board based on blend (1:1) of date palm leaf and jute stick gave highest impact strength.|
