As one of the most common materials in home decoration, the quality of board is directly related to the decoration effect of the entire space and the quality of living. Floors, door panels, furniture, beds, background walls, wooden ceilings, etc., are mostly made of wood panels as the main materials. Especially woodworking products made on site have very high quality requirements for panels. As for consumers, how to choose a large variety of plates? Let's take a look at the selection methods of these plates with Huan.
Introduction: Blockboard is also called big core board, which is processed from wooden strips and veneers. Blockboard has good screw-holding power, high strength, and hard texture. It has the effects of sound absorption and heat insulation. The moisture content of this board is between 10-13% and it is easy to process, so it is deeply loved by consumers.
Usage: Because the blockboard has a flat surface and is not easy to deform, it has a wide range of uses. It is mostly used in furniture, doors and windows, partitions, false walls, curtain boxes, etc.
Selection points: How to distinguish the quality of the blockboard? Firstly, look at the flatness of the board surface, it is better to have no warpage, deformation, no bubbles, and dents; secondly, because the board contains wood strips, it is necessary to see whether the core strips are evenly arranged Neat, small gaps, no decay, cracks, wormholes and knots in the core strip; you can also pick up a corner of the board and shake it. If you make a sound, it means that the gap between the wooden strips is large, which will affect the nail holding force.
Introduction: The so-called density board is actually also called fiberboard, which is an artificial board made of wood fiber or other plant fibers. According to the density, it can be divided into high density board, medium density board and low density board. The density board is easy to process and beautiful, but it is easy to be deformed by moisture and even blacken the surface, which affects the appearance.
Uses: High-density boards are mainly used for wallboards and partitions in interior decoration; medium-density boards are more suitable for furniture; laminated wood floors are also made of density boards as the main material.
Selection points: The surface is clean, smooth and flat. It is best to choose a sheet with better elasticity; because the density board is made of glue, try to choose E1 grade materials with higher environmental protection coefficients, or even E0 grade materials.
3. Solid wood board
Introduction: Solid wood board is a board processed from a whole piece of wood. Solid wood panels are durable and have natural texture. Most of the solid wood panels have a special wood fragrance, so they are expensive.
Usage: Due to price issues, solid wood panels are rarely used in furniture and decoration. The most common solid wood panel building materials on the market are solid wood flooring, followed by high-priced solid wood furniture.
Selection points: Look at the surface. The high-quality wood is sliced after several processes such as drying and degreasing. Therefore, the surface should not have decay, dead knots, wormholes, cracks, etc.; weigh, the heavier the weight of the board proves that it is compressed The denser, especially the solid wood floor; the thickness, the thicker the base layer, the stronger the strength of the board.
Introduction: Particleboard is also called particle board or bagasse board. It is made of wood or other lignocellulosic materials. After applying adhesive, it is glued into artificial board under the action of heat and pressure. Because the wood fiber of the particle board is large, the expansion rate after soaking in water is not high.
Application: The base material of melamine board widely used in the cabinet market is polished board. After treatment, particle board can also be used on furniture components.
Selection points: smooth surface, no hollowing, no degumming phenomenon; no peculiar smell is smelled with the nose, check the certificate, it shows that the formaldehyde content is within the national standard.
Introduction: Plywood is a three-layer or multi-layer board made of wood pieces that are spun and turned into veneer or sliced into thin wood, and then glued together with adhesive. It is also called plywood or core board. This kind of board has a flat shape and a relatively large width, so it has a strong covering ability.
Uses: Plywood is often used in various wood products such as panel furniture, background walls, suspended ceilings, and the bottom plate of decorative panels. The sizes are 3 centimeters, 5 centimeters, 9 centimeters, 12 centimeters, 15 centimeters, and 18 centimeters (1 centimeter = 1mm).
Selection points: When purchasing, check whether the plywood has bubbling and degumming, whether the core board has large gaps, whether the color of the panel is the same, cracks, wormholes, bumps, stains, defects, and repairing tape Appear; also need to pay attention to its formaldehyde emission and strength; should choose clear wood grain, luster, smooth board.
The above is the selection method of several commonly used boards for home improvement.
