It was evaluated the physical and mechanical properties of particleboard produced with different proportions of wood (Eucalyptus grandis) and bamboo (Bambusa vulgaris). The boards were produced using urea-formaldehyde adhesive with the addition of 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100% of bamboo. For each treatment were determined physical properties (specific gravity, moisture content, water absorption and thickness swelling after 2 and 24 hours water immersion) and mechanical properties (static bending, internal bond and screw withdrawal). The results indicated that the addition of particles of bamboo provided a significant reduction in the quality of panels for most parameters, showing higher water absorption and a lower resistance to static bending and screw withdrawal.
