Manufacturers use particle board not just because it is cheap (even if it may be the reason they choose this material in the end). This kind of board also has other advantages as follows.
1. Good sound absorption. This kind of board is sound insulative.
2. The particle board is also a kind of insulation material. So it will be cooler in a particle board room.
3. Particle board has a smooth surface, it can carry on all kinds of veneer.
4. In the process of particle board production, a small amount of glue will be used, so this kind of board is quite an environment-friendly material.
5. Because wood chips are spread in the particle board, the performance of each direction is basically the same. But the transverse bearing force is relatively poor.
