Nano science and nano technology provides numerous opportunities for enhancing the properties of wood based panel products. In this study an extender was made using nano silicon dioxide ( Sio2), nano calcium carbonate( CaCo3) with some specialty chemicals at a certain reciprocal proportion. Efficacy study was carried out with both phenolic and amino resin in terms of rheological and formaldehyde emission test using reinforcement of nano additive as extender at different concentration level. The plywood panels has been tested as per IS: 1734-1983 for mechanical properties. The rheological and adhesive properties has been tested as per IS 848: 2006. The test data reveals that enhancement of rheological, bonding and mechanical properties have been achieved after reinforcement of synthetic resin. The increase in the percentage of nano-additive caused an increase of viscosity, glue shear strength and minimizing the formaldehyde emission than using individual nano silicon dioxide ( Sio2), nano calcium carbonate( CaCO3) instead of the extender made by combination of above. Using nano additive extender at 5%, there is an increase in glue shear strength in the glue line and enhanced rheological properties in amino resin based adhesive was observed.
