Advice 2 : How to paint particleboard

Particleboard (chipboard) is one of the most common and readily available materials. For more than 40 years, he is used as a material for construction, furniture manufacturing. DSP has both positive effects and negative. To mitigate the negative impact of this material on the man applies his painting.
How to paint particleboard
The advantages of this material are:• low cost (much lower compared to the wooden boards, plywood);
• wide range of applications;
• the possibility of recycling waste from woodworking;
• the ease of manufacture of various components, in particular for furniture;
• durability (in accordance with standards of operation).
Disadvantages of DSP one of the most significant is the use in its manufacture of adhesives based on phenol-formaldehyde resins. In the process of operation of products made of this material, the influence of the fumes of these resins on living organisms can vary depending on the ambient temperature, humidity, methods of coating or painting the product, but not completely removed.
However, the main advantage of particle Board (low price) usually takes precedence when choosing a material. Especially since there are ways to significantly improve the material, to reduce the harm to minimum. One of them is the processing and staining of surfaces.
It is important to consider that the better and better the carried-out work for cutting sheets of chipboard, the less will be the effort spent on correcting the flaws in the final finish. Therefore, when cutting the sheet of chipboard to make the edge less burrs and notches, the cutting stick adhesive tape.

On the prepared surface apply the paint. Color select such that it was combined with the main color of the product. Instead of staining, you can use the tape for gluing the edges of parts made of chipboard. Attach it sticky side to the polished edge (removing dust). Then smooth the tape hot iron. Another processing method is: the strip of wood veneer or plastic stock to size and glue to the edge.
