Particleboard (illustration)

Wood-basel material

Production of particleboards

Particleboard, also called chipboard (short: PB, sometimes also MDP), is one of the oldest wood-based materials and perhaps the best known. It consists of glued flakes of different sizes, which form a multi-layer structure. The raw density varies between the individual layers: The outer layers consist of fine shavings. The surface is therefore dense; it is smooth and has a high load-bearing capacity. The inner layers are made of coarse flakes; the raw density here is as low as possible. This reduces the amount of material used in production and makes the board lighter overall. Depending on the application, however, the composition can vary considerably. The main uses of particleboard are in furniture production and interior finishing.

Surface calibrated, delivery stacked in packages on a pallet. The coating is later applied by the customer or used uncoated as a laying board, in the building sector or similar.
