Abstract (en)

A process for making a bamboo board includes the steps of obtaining thin bamboo chips (21) by planing bamboo stems along the direction of the orientation of bamboo fibers, drying the bamboo chips to remove water so that the water content in the bamboo chips is reduced to 6%-10% by weight, mixing the dried bamboo chips with at least one additive selected from the group consisting of a water-proofing agent and a fire-retarding agent, blending the mixture of the bamboo chips and the additive with a binder so as to bind the bamboo chips, forming the bound bamboo chips into a board under pressure and temperature, and covering the surfaces of the board with facing sheets. <IMAGE>
