Particle Boards

  • Product Description:

    It is a 3-layered chip board made by binding wood particles, ranging in size from flakes to splinters, together with suitable adhesives such as plastic resin and pressing them to form sheets.

    Application Area:

    Wall Panels
    Cabinets
    Cupboards
    Modular office furniture
    Table-tops
    Modular home furniture

  • Cutting:

    Can be cut to required sizes using hand/machine saws. In case of hand saw use only fine tooth saw and always keep it at a low angle for cutting to ensure clean sharp edges
    In case of machine saw, carbide tipped saw is recommended. Poly-crystalline diamond tipped saw should be used for cutting large volumes

    Fixing and Joining:
    Fixing and joining techniques in Particle Board are similar to methods used in most other engineered wood products. For screwing, following methods should be adopted:

    Use only a fully threaded parallel shank
    Drill pilot holes before screwing to avoid splitting
    Use only a fully threaded parallel shank
    Drill pilot holes before screwing to avoid splitting
    Do not over-tighten screws as further tightening will reduce the holding power
    Never hammer the screws
    Use only a fully threaded parallel shank
    Distance of screw from the corner, on surface and edges should be minimum 25 mm and 75 mm respectively

    Nailing:
    Nailing can be done for typical applications like upholstery, with nails no thicker than 17 gauge. In case of pneumatic guns for volume production, adjust air pressure to avoid excess penetration of the staple. To achieve best holding power, keep the staple just below the surface.

  • Storage:

    A dry, well ventilated storage space must be maintained
    It should be stored in horizontal stacks on a flat surface
    Sheets should be lifted clear off the floor using dry bearers
    Minimum sheet bearers should be provided every 50 boards of same thickness
    Spacing between bearers not to exceed 800 mm c/c
    Bearers supporting successive layers should be in vertical alignment
    Use plastic sheets if extreme damp conditions are expected
    Protect corners and edges during loading/unloading
    Do not slide drag or drop the boards
    Minimum conditioning of 48-72 hours at the site is recommended prior to use
