Lightweight particle board, made of poplar timber

poplar particleboard

Lightweight particle boardLightweight particle board poplar panels are unique both in their appearance and in their physical and mechanical properties. They have a compact core of environmentally-friendly poplar timber, and a fine surface with micro-particles with very light color, typical of the wood they are 100% made of.

The careful selection of poplar timber particles, mostly coming from trees discarded by sawmills and plywood producers, ensures excellent stability and high workability even at the edges, as well as ease of cutting, machining, milling, and molding processes. The inner layer is very compact and homogeneous and, thanks to peculiar poplar features, it allows long life to processing tools, as well as excellent screw-holding ability.

Lightness comes from raw material selection and a special production process: it simplifies handling and following manufacturing processes, and helps save shipping costs of finished products. Lightweight particle board poplar panels density goes down to 450/490 kg/m3 (compared to 550/650 kg/m3 of other kind of particle boards)!

Panels are suitable for finishing with melamine-impregnated papers, or coating with plastic laminates, finish foils, floors overlay, PVC, PP and veneers.

The standard dimensions most commonly produced are:
4220 x 1860 mm

2800 x 2070 mm
Thickness ranges from 8 to 58 mm

Special sizes or thicknesses can be produced upon quotation and minimum quantity requirements.

Bonding is made with certified urea-formaldehyde resin, suitable for panel use in dry conditions. The panel is compliant with Class 1, according to the requirements of EN 717-1 (single-value <= 8mgHCHO/100g – medium value <= 6.5 mgHCHO/100g) methodological standards EN 120, commercially known as E1.
Upon request, they also meets the requirements of the CARB 2 California Code of Regulation (FRO ATCM §93210.2 (a) Table 1, Phase 2) and TSCA Title VI – 40 CFR Part 770.
