Chipboard is an engineered panel product in which particles of wood are bonded
together to form a panel. It is most commonly formed using a synthetic resin
adhesive. Chipboard is most commonly made from softwood chips though hardwoods are
sometimes used. The chips are dried and mixed with an adhesive that is appropriate
to the product’s end-use. The chips are formed into a mat and are then
pressed between heated platens to compress and cure the panel. The finished panels
are then sanded and cut to size.
