Abstract: The lamination properties on surfaces of laminates board by using different types of decorative papers was evaluated for particleboards manufactured using urea formaldehyde (UF). The different paper need to be checked for suitability especially in protection of performance of laminated particleboard. Failure of product will be costly for both user and supplier. Lamination was done on the top and bottom surfaces of particleboard. These papers are decorative paper S (Stipples), decorative paper T (Texture) and decorative paper WE (Wood grain). Effects of different types of decorative paper used on laminated board for resistance to acid, resistance to scratch, resistance to abrasion and resistance to graphite were investigated. The results showed that significant variation for scratch test but not significant for the other tests. Overall, decorative papers used in this study meet the requirement for the standard BS EN.
