Particle Board is a highly essential product in Construction Industry. Basically Particle Board refers to a composite material which is made by mixing wood particles with a resin or some other binder. The Particle Board is highly demanded for its fabulous features. Here’s a list of some of its features:
Cheap & Best
Particle Board is cheaper than any other quality rich board available in the market. Being made from resins and binders, the Particle Boards are best choice for making furniture.
Particle Board has a more uniform appearance than wooden boards. It is most often used in applications where more preference is given to the cost and appearance. For example wooden pieces, detachable blocks, etc.
Wood Resembling Looks
Particle Board is widely used in load-bearing applications. Particle Board Manufacturers these days glue a wood veneer over particle board so as to make it resemble to wood.
Looking at the amazing features of the Particle Board, these are extensively used in making Particle Board Cabinets, Particle Board Doors, Particle Board Beds, Particle Board Desks, Particle Board Ply boards, etc.
Requiring no major labor cost, the Particle Board is easy to made. Particle Board can be easily made in a few simple steps that are given below:
In a disc chipper, feed the raw wood material for the Particle Board.
Dry the wood particles.
Screen out any particles that are too large or small.
Spray the resin onto the particles through nozzles.
Use Urea formaldehyde for those composites that don't require water resistance. Whereas use Melamine formaldehyde for those applications that moisture resistance to the Particle Board.
Mix the resin with the wood particles and pour it into a sheet.
Use rotating rakes to distribute the particles in the resin according to size.
Compress the sheets to make them thinner and easier to transport.
Cool, trim and sand the Particle Board.
Now the Particle Board is all set to be sold without providing any further treatment. Just make sure to cover the Particle Board with a wood veneer before dispatching it to the retailer or buyer.
Particle Board can be made more attractive by painting or the use of wood veneers that are glued onto surfaces that will be visible. Though it is denser than conventional wood, it is the lightest and alluring fiberboard, best to be used for decorative.
