What is particle board? What are the advantages and disadvantages of particle board


Board is ubiquitous in our home decoration, and the commonly used board is solid wood board, which is made of wood. It is also made of wood fiber, called fiberboard, and particle board. What is particle board? What are the advantages and disadvantages of particle board? Here is a brief introduction to what particle board is.

1、 What is particle board

Particle board is an artificial board made of wood or other non wood plants. The middle layer of particle board is wood chips, and the two sides are wood chips with fine organization, which are hot pressed by applying adhesives and other additives. According to the structure, it can be divided into single-layer, double-layer, and gradient particle board. The surface layer of particle board is powder layer, and the particle board with uniform texture is the best. The molecular structure of particle board is compact, and the bending strength is high.

2、 What is the use of particle board

Particle board is often used as a decorative board for interior walls in home or architectural decoration, which is often referred to as partition wall. In use, it is usually required to cover the surface with plastic veneer. The particle board without veneer is often used as the base plate of the wall panel, which can only play a supporting role. However, the medium density particle board and high density particle board have considerable glue content, which can be used to make semi-finished building decorative boards that can be installed directly.

3、 What are the advantages and disadvantages of particle board

Advantages: the surface of particle board is flat, the texture of the wood is realistic, beautiful and durable, and various veneer treatments can be carried out; The unit weight is uniform, the thickness error is small, and the amount of glue used in the production process is small, so the environmental protection coefficient is relatively high; The granular structure of the internal cross staggered structure ensures that its performance in all directions is basically the same, with good lateral load-bearing capacity, and also has good sound absorption and soundproofing performance.

Disadvantages: Everything has two sides, both advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantage of particle board is that because of its internal granular structure, it is not easy to cut, and it is easy to cause tooth burst when cutting the board. Therefore, it has high requirements for some processing equipment, which is not suitable for on-site production; The edges of particle board are rough and easy to absorb moisture. As the exposed parts of furniture edges, corresponding edge sealing treatment should be taken to prevent deformation.
