Chipboard is made from wood chips bonded together with synthetic glue through compression at an elevated temperature. Raw chipboard is the fundamental material used by the furniture industry. The main advantage of chipboard is its cost-effectiveness, as it does not require consideration of wood grain and fibers. Its ease of processing, stability in terms of parameters and dimensions make raw chipboard an excellent semi-finished product for enhancing furniture fronts and other components through processes like lamination, veneering, and postforming. It is also suitable for direct use in structural elements for upholstered furniture. Raw chipboard is a fundamental component in the production of worktops. In the construction industry, it finds applications as an insulating material, for partition walls, and in the production of interior furnishings such as windowsills, wall panels, and flooring.
Chipboard can be veneered with any veneers available in the market.
