Core types


Medium-Density Fibreboard (MDF) a composite panel product in
that it is created from small wood particles, pressed together with
wax and a binding agent through high temperature and pressure
to form sheets. MDF is heavier than other forms of composite
panels. This increased strength and precision makes MDF the
preferred choice in high end and heavy duty applications.

Particle board

Particle Board, also known as chipboard, is an engineered wood
product. It is manufactured from wood particles such as wood
chips, shavings, or even saw dust. A synthetic resin or other
suitable bonding agent is combined with the particles to create the
product. Particle board is more uniform and dense than typical
wood or plywood. This allows for a tight tolerance ideal for
applications that require precision.

Veneer Core

Made with alternating veneer inner plies. In North America, the
innerply species are usually softwood (Fir or Pine) on the west
coast and poplar or aspen on the east coast. Veneer core panels
are relatively light in comparison with composite panels, typically
weighing about 70 lbs. per 3/4″ panel. Veneer core offers great
strength and stability with better spanning properties than either
PBC or MDF. Veneer core does have a wider variance in
thickness in comparison with highly engineered PBC or MDF.

Combination Core

Combination core, as the name suggests is a combination of different
substrates. Typically this is a veneer core center with thin MDF layers on
the outer ply. The advantage of this core is the light weight and screw
holding capability of a veneer core paired with the consistent finish of
an MDF panel.
