Cypers is your distributor for chipboards. Like MDF boards, these consist of a mixture of sawdust, chippings of wood (sometimes also flax and straw) and a binder, such as synthetic resin. This mixture is compressed at high pressure and temperature. How do chipboards differ from MDF boards? Mainly in the size of the chippings used.
The composition of the material and the pressure during compression determine the final characteristics of a chipboard, for example a moisture-resistant or fire-retardant effect.
Applications of chipboard
A chipboard is an all-rounder, and is used for reinforcing plaster walls to applications such as underflooring, worktops, storage cupboards or cabinet fronts. Chipboards are identified according to their use. You will recognise this from the letter P + number.

- P4: chipboards for load-bearing applications - dry environments
- P5: chipboards for load-bearing applications - damp environments
- P6: chipboards for heavy loads - load-bearing applications and dryenvironment
- P7: boards for heavy loads - load-bearing applications and damp environment
