|Publication Date:||1 December 2011|
|ICS Code (Fibre and particle boards):||79.060.20|
This European Technical Specification specifies the requirements for uncoated particleboards for use in dry conditions in non load-bearing applications with density below 600 kg/m3.
This Technical Specification applies to particleboard which is mostly homogenous and continuous in its composition and which does not contain hollow spaces, chambers or other type of cavities which can be encountered as honeycombs in sandwich panels or as tubes in extruded boards.
This Technical Specification does not give requirements for extruded particleboards (see EN 14755), flaxboards (see EN 15197) and sandwich panels.
NOTE Typical applications for lightweight boards are in furniture and non-structural applications e.g. in doors, packaging.
