What is Chipboard Ceiling?
Chip board also known as ‘particle board’ or ‘Low-Density Fiberboard’ (LDF)) is a versatile, moderately cheaper and can be used to make furniture (including carcasses for kitchen units), other cabinet applications, floor decking, shelving, ceilings and general building work
Particle board Chipboard is an engineered wood product manufactured from wood chips and a synthetic resin or other suitable binder, which is pressed and extruded. Chipboard is often confused with oriented strand board (also known as flakeboard, waferboard, or chipboard), a different type of fiberboard that uses machined wood flakes and offers more strength.
Chip board is manufactured by mixing flakes of wood together with a resin and forming the mixture into a sheet. The raw material is fed into a disc chipper with between four and sixteen radially arranged blades. The chips from disk chippers are more uniform in shape and size than from other types of wood chippers. The particles are then dried, and any oversize or undersized particles are screened out.
