Chip board is the oldest and most well-known wood material. It is made up of different sized glued chips that create a multi-layer structure. It is used mainly in furniture production and interior construction.
The basic material for chip board is fibre material that contains wood. That is mainly industrial logs, sawmill by-products, such as rinds, splinters, chips, or sawdust, as well as waste wood. Bamboo, bagasse, rice straw, or similar vegetable fibres are also used to make wood composite boards. Below the chip board production process is described with industrial logs as a raw material base.
