coated particle board
Particle board made by compressing wood chips added formaldehyde glue. In flat-pressed particle board, the chips are parallel to the surface. The thin coat chips in the surface layer are thinner than those in the middle layer. so one surface of the particle board is denser and more compact than the middle.
In standard particle board, urea formaldehyde plastic resin used as glue. The amount of glue in a particle board main content wood veneer is 10%. and many coated board wood furniture products areclassified. in surface material emissions class M1. particleboard furniture Material classification. includes the limit values for the emissions of building materials meant for interiors. as well as their classification. Class M1 contains emissions-tested material used. whose emissions of impurities are within the most stringent requirements. The highgloss finish is best results
coated particle board Advantages
coated particle board Advantages its basic properties, particle board is comparable to wood. It also has the following benefits, owing to its method of manufacture:
particle board is homogeneous. and has the same degree of strength in different directions.
the dynamics of the board in the direction of the plane surface is slight.
The density of particle board varies between 650 and 750 kg/m³, so it is heavier than sawn conifer timber.
The main advantage of particle board over solid wood or plywood is that its Cost effective . Compared to plywood furniture of similar dimensions. particle board furniture costs less than half. This low cost of course comes at a price, because particle boards are not as durable as plywood or solid wood.
Particle boards are machine manufactured to desired dimensions,. and thus standard pieces of furniture can be mass-produced using furniture board . This further brings down the costs since there is no carpenter work involved. This also means ready-to-buy products for customers with zero waiting time.
A thin layer of lamination (decorative laminate). is usually glued over the surface of the particle boards. at the time they manufactured. Such boards called pre-laminated boards. Lamination increases the beauty as well as the durability of the board to some extent.
But, when customers opt for plywood furniture they also have to select. and buy decorative laminate sheets that will glued over the plywood sheets. This further increases the cost of the custom-made plywood furniture made.
Particle boards are very light in weight. and hence furniture made from these boards is easy to transport and move around. But this while this can said to be an advantage for some people. it also is an indicator of an important drawback which is that the board is not as strong as other types of wood. A general rule of thumb when it comes to selecting woods is that the denser the wood the stronger it is. And denser usually also means heavier weight. This is why the solid wood furniture that lasts for several years is so heavy.
coated particle board disadvantages
coated particle board has low strength as compared to other fiberboards. It has low density so it can damaged while transportation.
In presence of moisture, particle board expands and warps. Also in extreme conditions discolouration can occur.
As it has low strength and gets damaged in presence of moisture. particle boards have low durability. and less life as compared to medium density fiberboard and plywood.
coated particle board cannot support heavy loads as it is weak in strength.
Particle boards can be toxic. as they manufactured using urea formaldehyde resin. which is the source of formaldehyde gas. Even after years of installation. the resin can break down and release formaldehyde gas. which carcinogenic for humans i.e. causing cancer.
particle board selection
for coated particle boards either the product name. or the quality of the covering of both surfaces. the methods of protecting the edges (or edge battening) and colour.
During transportation and storage. the boards protected from wetness, dirt, ground contact, dents and scratches. The boards stored face down on a flat base. If necessary, supporting timber can used at intervals of 0.5 metres. A pile of boards covered with a protective sheet.
Before installation, particle boards should aired for 5-7 days. as close as possible to their final conditions of moisture and temperature. When aired, the boards re kept apart from each other using separating strips. and stacked against a wall, for example.
Particle boards can worked using all tools suitable for working with wood. A table-mounted or portable circular saw, for example. is suitable for sawing the boards. Smaller sawing jobs can also done with a regular hand saw. Contour sawing can done with a jig saw.
Particle boards can painted, wallpapered and laminated. All general products meant. for the interior painting of wooden surfaces are suitable for painting the boards.
The painting of untreated standard particle board requires priming. in which the surface of the board painted with one thin coat of white unthinned interior primer. Nail or screw heads that remain visible filled and dried and then sanded to a smooth finish. 1-2 coats of finishing painting applied using the desired colour. When using ready primed boards, surface painting alone is enough. Rolling is the best way to apply the paint.
Nail or screw heads that remain visible filled and dried and then sanded to a smooth finish. Board joints filled with elastic sealing strip. Once the glue has dried, the joints filled and sanded to a smooth finish. Wallpapering done according to the instructions of the wallpaper manufacturer. At the corners, the sheets of wallpaper should not overlap.
