Finger Jointed Laminated Boards - A Solid Solution
 
Finger Jointed Laminated Boards offer a solution to the increasing shortage of solid timber panels. The timber is kiln dried to a moisture content below 10%, planed and ripped to thinner strips. These strips are finger jointed after colour matching to the desired lengths and then edge coated with special resins which can withstand boiling water tests. The coated strips are edge laminated applying pressure from the sides AND top in a composer press to form panels. These panels are sanded to produce finished solid lumber panels. Machining these panels can be done exactly the way solid lumber is machined.

Its Uses

Finger Jointed Laminated Boards can be used to make joinery material, beams, table tops, parquet flooring and for other panel applications.

Its Specifications

The Rubberwood for production of Finger Jointed Laminated Boards is pressure impregnated with Boric-Borax, Parachem Anti-Bacterial Chemicals, Kiln dried & and normalised. The grade specification is applicable to 1 face & 2 edges and the other face will have the specification with minor defects of the next lower grade.

The Resins for edge gluing & Finger Jointing are polymers (PVAC, PU Combinations) which are either white or translucent. The glue joints are designed to withstand delamination tests conducted after boiling. The depth of chemical impregnation is usually above 70% and is measured by reagents. The toxicity level of the product is low and within allowable limits.

The maximum dimensions of panels are: Length 6000mm, Width 1200mm, Thickness 60mm.
