Description: Fiberboard sandwich panels constructed of a structural core with exterior skins can be produced with high strength and stiffness values that compare to other wood-based panels. At the same time, as much as two-thirds less material is used in the process compared to commercial wood composite products. This offers large savings in raw material and weight. The panel technology is promising in construction, furniture, and packaging applications. The manufacturing process is compatible with a wide range of fiber types and qualities. The three-dimensional fiberboard is manufactured from no- or low-value material acquired from forest thinnings and recycled corrugated containers. This paper presents the initial investigations into the properties of sandwich panels produced from recycled and residual wood material.

Keywords: Fiberboard, recycling, low value timber, sandwich panels, residual wood
