Abstract: This paper discusses the prospective uses of three readily available rattan canes in Southern and Western Nigeria namely: Laccosperma secundiflorum, Eremospatha macrocarpa, and Calamus deerratus as furnish for Cement Bonded Composites (CBCs) production. Advantages of utilising rattan canes as furnish for CBC production, limiting factors influencing the development of rattan composites and means of curtailment are examined. Rattan canes are potential furniture for CBC production but will require pre-treatment before use to ensure formation of strong crystalline bond.
