Particleboard is an composite wood product. It is manufactured from wood scrap, i.e., wood chips, shavings and saw dust which are bound together with a resin or binder. The mixture is then pressed and formed into sheets.
Particleboard tends to be less expensive, denser and has a more consistent than conventional wood or plywood. Although it is denser, than real wood it is considered the weakest type of pressed fiberboard.
Particleboard is one of the primary substrates used in laminated parts in thermally fused melamine, foils, low-basis weight papers, vinyls and veneers. Panel Processing produces parts in 3/8″, 1/2″, 5/8″, 3/4″, 1″ and 1-1/8″ thicknesses. Typical uses for laminated parts include P.O.P. display parts, components & shelving for store fixtures and cabinet components. Particleboard is also used unfinished in hidden structural parts in fixtures and displays, but it can also be utilized for its unique look for in-store shelving, table tops or fixtures, when applied with a UV fill and top coat producing a smooth finish.
