  • Particle Board: Industrial Grade Particle Board (IPB) is made of wood chips that are compressed and bonded together using urea formaldehyde resin. The standard density is 45 lbs., which is used in virtually all applications. High density (ie. 55 lbs.) is also available for some applications where more strength or screw holding is needed. 
  • MDF or Medium Density Fiberboard: Similar to particle board, MDF is made of small particles of wood fiber bonded together with sythetic resin and compressed under extreme heat and pressure. It is about 20% higher in price compared to IPB. The benefits of MDF over particle board are that it is stiffer, stronger and smoother which makes it  perfect for painting or powder coating. However, it does not have the screw holding capacity of particle board. MDF is usually of higher density than particle board (48 to 55 psi.). There are no added Urea Formaldehyde brands of MDF such as Medite II where tighter emission standards are  required and can contribute to achieving LEED credits.
  • Plywood: An engineered wood product made from thin sheets of wood, called plies or wood veneers. The layers are glued together so that adjacent plies have their grain at right angles to each other for greater strength (crossbanding). There are usually an odd number of plies, as the symmetry makes the board less prone to warping.
  • Performance CoreAn an engineered plywood panel made from 100% White Aspen with no added Urea Formaldehyde, low emission, calibrated core which is perfect for doors and drawer fronts or anywhere that requires superior void free smoothness and flat, uniform thickness panels.
  • SkyBlend: An SCS certified 100% post consumer recycled wood fiber particle board with no added Urea Formaldehyde. It combines low emmission standards, certified recycled content, sustainable raw materials manufactured by Roseburg Forest Products. Skyblend can contribute to acheiving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design(LEED) credits. SkyBlend is commonly used in medical, educational and other institutional facilities where tighter emmission standards are required.
