Properties

Moisture content and climate conditions

The moisture content of the sheets varies between 5% and 13%. The recommended climate conditions for spaces used to store standard particleboard are between 12°C and 20°C and a relative humidity between 50% and 60% with a maximum of 65%. Under increasingly humid conditions, particleboard sheets may increase in length and width. Depending upon the type of sheet concerned, this increase can be roughly between 0.5 mm and 1.5 mm per linear metre if the moisture content of the sheet increases from 7 – 8 % to 13 – 14%.

Storage and transport

The sheets should be stored under the climate conditions described above. Particleboard sheets should be stacked flat, at least 10 cm from the ground, with support beams every 60 to 80 cm. The height of the stack should not exceed 90 cm. If several packets are stacked, the support beams should be positioned exactly one above the other. The sheets should be stacked as flat as possible and the edges should be aligned with each other to minimize the risk of damage to the corners.

Cleaning

Melamine faced products can best be cleaned with a general household cleaning agent. A clean cloth should be used regularly. Greasy residues can also be removed with thinner, but after doing so, you should immediately clean the surface with water and a clean cloth. Never use abrasive agents.

Processing operations

Saréco can process your sheets as follows:

  • Custom cutting
  • Edge banding, if necessary on all four sides
  • Making a groove and/or saw-cut
  • Making drilled holes or slits in the surface
  • Custom milling/cutting patterns and gluing the edges
