Materials furniture products
(c) Tegofilm (MDF Film)
Artificial board for tegofilm, generally made of a mixture of paper. The size-also vary greatly. Tegofilm used for tables, cabinets, buffets (olympic). The measure is 4.0 MM 4 x 8, 9.0 MM 4 x 8, 4 x 8 MM 12.0, 15.0 MM 4 x 8 and 4 x 8 MM 18.0.
Blockboard is made with wood glue lat, coat the opposing side and a second side surface with a sheet finir. Wood lath width is not greater than 25 mm. Blockbord has two types namely melamine coating and ordinary. Artificial board is commonly used in the construction of doors, wall panels, skating room and floor coatings. The type and size of block board are: 1). blockborad regular, 15.0 MM 4 x 8 AK, 15.0 MM 4 x 8 UTL, 18.0 MM 4 x 8 AK, 18.0 MM 4 x 8 UTL, (description AK: Falcata; UTL: hardwood., 2). blockboard melamine, 15.0 MM 4 x 8, 4 x 8 MM 15.0, 18.0 MM 4 x 8 AK, 18.0 MM 4 x 8.
Particle board is a board made from the wood chips with the aid of synthetic adhesives then pressed so has the nature of wood massif, refractory and insulating materials as well as a good acoustic material. Particle board has several properties, among others:
Depreciation is considered nothing
high durability against fungi, because of the preservative
It is a good heat insulation
As good acoustic material
Particle board can be used for beberbagai purposes, among others: for the furniture, the walls in the room, between the walls, ceilings and floors, and so on.
