Particleboard, also known as chipboard, is an engineered panel product which is manufactured using wood chips. Different grades of chipboard can be used across dry or humid conditions, load-bearing and non-load-bearing applications, which means this type of timber is ideal for use in both interior projects and furniture applications.

Chipboard is a more cost-effective alternative to solid timber and can contain a high proportion of recycled wood. It is quite often used as a solution for projects that require a large form, such as for a tabletop or desk. Particleboard is a popular choice for many projects, primarily due to its affordability, rigid construction and smooth surface. This high-density board is commonly used for projects such as furniture, flooring and shelving.
In some cases, particleboard can be modified in order to enhance its properties – this can be done to increase features such as moisture resistance, acoustic insulation and fire retardancy.
