The production process of tubular particle board and particle board are the same. The tubular particle board is generally used as a filling material in tubular board doors. Particle board is generally used in the furniture industry and flooring industry. Here we will explain the differences between these two products.
Tubular particle board
All Tubular particle board manufacturers produce it from wood chips. Wood chips mix with glue. The chips are then pressed under high pressure and heat. In this way, it produces tubular chipboard.
Particle board suppliers produce and wholesale chipboard sheets.
What are the advantages of tubular chipboard?
Hollow core board produces from wood chips. Forestry General Directorate cut the trees. And sold them to the market. Some logs are large and thick. But some logs are not big enough.
The tree sometimes does not grow straight. It is very difficult to produce wooden boards from such logs. Gives too much wastes. And the cost will be very high.
Besides, while producing furniture we have to use one type of wood. In other words, some of the furniture cannot be walnut, and other parts from spruce, fir, or pine. For this reason, you have to use one piece and the same type of wood board. This increases the production cost.
But, there is no such obligation in particle board production. It does not matter what kind of wood chips we use in production. Also, the size of the logs which produce the chips is not important. Put the trees into the chipper and produce chips. Then dry the chips with a dryer. After moisture decrease enough we begin production. In this way, the cost of tubular particle board production will be very low compared to wood.
Hollow core particle board usage areas
Hollow chipboard is generally used as a door filling material. Producers prefer honeycomb craft paper in the doors.
- Paper is low cost.
- It is lightweight compared to hollow core chipboard.
- It is very easy to install.
- Its strength is low
Consumers who want higher quality doors prefer tubular chipboard doors.
- Hollow particle board costs less than wood but more expensive than paper.
- Tubular chipboard is heavier than paper but lighter than wood.
- Hollow core particle board assembly is more difficult than paper but easier than wood.
- Its strength is higher than paper and is the same as wood.
Some tubular particle board has a fire-resistant feature. It provides fire resistance at different times such as 30mm, 45min, 60min, 90min. In this way, it retardant the spread of fire. Fire-resistant doors produce special. The seals and other accessories used in these doors have fire-retardant features.
The thickness of the doors is different in each country. They produce different thicknesses such as 35mm, 40mm, and 44mm
Producing Doors With Tubular Particle Board
They mount A 28mm thick tubular board inside the 35mm thick doors. And mount a 3.5mm thick MDF panel on both sides of the door. Then paint or laminate the door with PVC upon request.
Doors of other thicknesses produce with the same logic.
Particle Board Production
Particle board production is exactly the same as tubular particle board. The Particle board is also produced using adhesive wood chips. In the same way, sheets produce by applying high pressure and temperature. The only tubular particle boards have tubes inside of sheets. The only difference is this. These holes make the product lighter and cheaper.
Tube boards that produce 60mm and 70mm are for pallet production and construction.
What Are The Tubular Chipboard And Particle Board Sizes?
In both products, we can produce any desired sizes. Generally preferred sizes are as follows.
Thickness: 12mm, 15mm,18mm, 22mm, 25mm, 28mm, 30mm, 33mm, 35mm, 38mm 60mm, 70mm
Width: 600mm, 700mm, 900mm, 1180mm, 1250mm
Length: varies according to the buyer’s demand.
What Is Chipboard Density?
Chipboard density varies according to the manufacturer’s production style. Chipboard density varies between 750kg/m3 and 450 kg/m3. The diameter of the holes determines tubular particle board density.
Particle Board Sheets Usage Areas
Chipboard sheets use in the furniture sector. The furniture industry uses chipboard and MDF together. They use MDF for important areas because it is more durable. They use chipboard for reducing cost by using chipboard in other parts for furniture. Chipboard has become the abandonment of our lives. Different densities and quality of chipboards will produce with new technologies.
