Furniture Board Chipboard fire retardant 113 CST Elegant black: what is it?

Furniture panel is a fully finished board material, in this case with a melamine top layer. Melamine-faced furniture panels are widely used in the furniture industry and are gaining ground due to the versatile textures, colours and possibilities in terms of top layers. The advantage of melamine faced panel material, compared to veneer, is that it is ready to use immediately: no need to finish! This makes the product ideal for use. A melamine top layer is a veneer layer of paper fibres, melted together with a melamine resin. This creates a hard plastic top layer. 

The furniture panels have a strong and hard melamine top layer, which gives them an attractive appearance and makes the wood durable. The melamine top layer has a high density, which gives it its hard and strong properties. A melamine top layer is water-repellent, easy to wipe down with a cloth and, to a certain extent, heat-resistant. Properties that are very pleasant for every interior application!

The advantages of melamine faced board material again:

  • Ready to use
  • Strong and water-repellent
  • Fixed colour scheme

Carrier made of fire-retardant chipboard

This furniture panel has fire-retardant chipboard as a carrier. This is a popular choice when it comes to melamine-faced panel material in public areas where fire safety plays a major role. Examples are hotels, theatres, airports and hospitals. The chipboard type on which the top layer of this product is supplied is PremiumBoard Pyroex chipboard. A type of Pfleiderer chipboard that is enriched with a flame retardant bond. By adding fire retardant salts, flame propagation is slowed down, the board can withstand high heat and develops the same smoke as solid wood. This makes it an excellent choice for public spaces.

Fire retardant furniture panels are therefore about ensuring fire safety, slowing down the process but not stopping it. In addition, the melamine layer is still sensitive to heat. Placing Furniture Board Chipboard fire retardant W10410 SD Opaque white on objects with high heat radiation is not recommended for the visible sides because the top layer can still be damaged by the heat.

A sustainable choice

Chipboard is made of glued wood chips that are pressed together in three crosswise layers. This makes the board structurally strong. In comparison to MDF, coarser chips are used and in comparison to OSB, finer chips are used. The PremiumBoard Pyroex boards have a composition of 50% post-consumer wood, 35% pre-consumer wood and 15% fresh wood. This makes the PremiumBoard Pyroex boards a very durable choice for use in fire-sensitive areas.

Machining of furniture panels

The great advantage of furniture panels is that they are immediately ready for use. Furniture panels are good and relatively easy to assemble if you are well prepared. Please note that melamine is sensitive when it is processed. When assembling the panel, it is advisable to screw the screws at the back or bottom (make sure not to go through the material!). This way the screw holes are not visible and you avoid visible splinters of the melamine. Are you going to mount on the visible side? Then first place painter's tape on the spot where you are going to process the board. In this way, the tape absorbs the first contact between the tool and the board and the risk of splinters is reduced.

Specific applications of furniture panels

Furniture panel is also called melamine faced or decorative chipboard and is widely used for making furniture. It is a versatile product that can be used for many purposes. For example, desk tops, cupboards, kitchen cupboards, bookcases or shelves. Furniture often has a large surface area and therefore takes a lot of time to finish. By using board material with a melamine top layer, you no longer need to paint the board material and you ensure that everything looks neat and tidy. With the various possibilities of decors and textures, there is a suitable board material for every job.
