Particleboard

SierraPine produces particleboard made from western pine at our mill in Martell, CA.

Particleboard is a non-structural interior product made from wood particles that are byproducts from the manufacture of other wood products. The wood particles are mixed with resins or binders and formed under heat and pressure into a panel. The board consists of several layers: A core and two outside layers or faces. All of SierraPine’s particleboard products are SCS certified for their recycled fiber content. A summary of the products manufactured is shown below.
