Abstract
The present study was carried out primarily to investigate the fire properties of particleboards with 5% and 10% feather content. With regard to the flammability of chicken feathers, separate sets of panels were produced with 10% wollastonite content to determine to what extent it could help mitigate the negative effects of the addition of flammable feathers on the fire properties. It was concluded that the inclusion of 5% of chicken feathers can be considered the optimum level, enough to procure part of the ever-growing needs for new sources of raw material in particleboard manufacturing factories, without sacrificing the important fire properties. Moreover, the addition of 10% wollastonite is recommended to significantly improve the fire properties, making the panels more secure in applications with higher risks of fire. It is further stated thata chicken feather content of 10% is not recommended as it significantly deteriorates all properties (including physical, mechanical, and fire properties).
