CHIPBOARD

ChipboardDefinition

Chipboard is made from small chips of spruce and pine wood bonded together under pressure.   A multi-layered mat is built out of the chips and hot-pressed under high pressure. Fine chips are placed at the top and bottom of the mat ensuring a smooth surface suitable for painting. After cooling down the boards are cut to size and sanded. Chipboard has high quality and excellent screw holding capability. Boards can be finished and coated differently.

 Field of application

Chipboard comes in two grades. Standard grade is widely used in furniture manufacturing and general joinery, particularly where the boards will be covered by a veneer or laminate.

Flooring grade is meant for interior use, is produced as a square-edged panel and is also available with a grooved profile. Flooring chipboard grade is mainly used for building floors.

Chipboard is also widely used in construction, packaging and carpentry.
