Recently, glue-laminated bamboo normally used for flooring and panelling has been made into mouldings. The physical properties of such a bamboo moulding were studied, and the properties of it have been compared with other four kinds of mouldings, one MDF moulding and three solid wood mouldings. The bamboo moulding has excellent surface hardness and antinicking property, but its density is quite high, which may influence its utilization. The research has also shown that the bamboo moulding has a lower volume shrink coefficient, and good dimensional stability.
