Specially engineered for excellent machinability and screw-holding power
We manufacture both fir and pine particle board substrates. We produce all grades to fit your needs, including underlayment, door core, commercial, industrial, and specialty. It is also available in many thicknesses, widths and lengths that are not available in plywood. We can create custom sizes and specifications to meet individual customer needs.
Timber Products produces particle board at our Medford, OR and Sutter Creek, CA facilities utilizing cutting-edge wood manufacturing technology. We manufacture all of our particle board with no added formaldehyde and in two certifications: FSC and SFI. Finished particle board is dyed with the help of a unique bio filter that removes harsh chemicals and pollutants from the product. In keeping with our commitment to sustainable forestry, we fire our triple-pass dryers with leftover sander dust from the production process.
Our team of quality control experts tests our particle board for flexibility, strength, and hardness per ANSI standard A208.1. Testing follows standard procedures outlined in ASTM D1037-12. During the manufacturing process, we test boards off the production line every two hours. Sample panels undergo MOR and IB testing to determine how much force is needed to break the board and how much is needed to pull it apart.
After an order is completed, additional testing is performed on finished panels. These tests include additional MOR and IB tests, flex tests, linear expansion tests, moisture content measurements, and more.
Our particle board:
- Resists warping, sagging, and chip-out
- Provides excellent machinability and screw-holding power
- Is the ideal choice for a wide range of applications
- Contains post-industrial recycled/recovered fiber
