Particleboard is a reconstituted wood panel product manufactured from wood particles. A mat of individual wood particles is coated in adhesive resin and pressed together into a finished panel. As the wood fibres in the particles are randomly oriented, the finished panel has uniform properties in each direction.
Particleboard is easy to work with normal woodworking tools as it has no grain direction so there is the same strength and appearance in all directions. The fine surface layers are also pre-sanded, ready for painting or laminating. Particleboard is available in two grades, standard and moisture resistant substrates, making it ideal for Cabinetry, furniture and veneer substrates.
