More about Particleboard

Particleboard is a non-structural wood panel product constructed using wood residues from the production of primary wood products. Particleboard is produced by blending these wood residues with resin(s), resin catalyst, and wax followed by curing under pressure and heat. Urea formaldehyde (UF) resins continue to be the most cost effective and commonly used resins for composite wood products such as particleboard. However, due to formaldehyde emission regulations from the California Air Resources Board (CARB), manufacturers have begun to use new technologies such as formaldehyde scavengers - such as urea, melamine, and melamine urea formaldehyde (MUF) resin - to reduce formaldehyde emissions from UF resin. This CP models a particleboard product bound with a UF/MUF resin system.
