Composite Wood Panels and Decorative Surfaces
"Composite wood products" refers to a family of engineered wood panels that includes particleboard, MDF (medium density fiberboard) and hardboard.
Particleboard is made from small wood particles pressed together with glue under extreme heat and pressure to make a solid panel.
MDF and hardboard are made the same way, except the wood particles are further refined into even smaller particles to provide a smooth edge to the panel.
Composite wood panels are often surfaced with a decorative treatment. There are a number of surfacing options available that can be used to create the wonderful array of looks and styles that consumers want and expect.
