Chipboard is an engineered wood, which is manufactured from wood shavings, sawdust, wood chips and a synthetic resin. This is then compressed under a high temperature and bound to form sheets.
Chipboard is similar to MDF and hardboard, although chipboard is much denser than conventional wood. It is the second lightest form of fibreboard, second only to insulation board and can be covered in a plastic veneer for specialist surfaces.
Chipboard P2 Furniture Grade is commonly found in furniture items such as tables, cupboards and bookcases.
