Abstract: This paper present the development of composite flush door shutter for ecological purpose (eco-composite) using natural fibre like bamboo, jute and their basic mechanical properties. Here, 100 percent indigenous technologies were applied to make flush door shutter of solid core type. Different thermosetting resin adhesives were used as matrix at different stage. The experimental results [as per IS: 2202 (Part I)] of the physico-mechanical properties like surface finishing, tensile strength, internal bond strength, density, screw withdrawal and glue shear strength etc. of the flush door had a sufficient specific strength (influenced by the dilution of resin matrix) which is equivalent to that of the conventional wooden flush door. This technique for the production of flush door using fast growing natural fibre is cost effective and could be an ideal solution with ever depleting forest reserves.
