The prospect of PVC furniture board

At present, the PVC industry is developing rapidly all over the world with broad prospects. All countries are optimistic about the potential of PVC and its benefits to the ecological environment. PVC is proving to the world that its role and status can not be replaced by any other products with its superior and unique properties. Social development needs it and environmental protection needs it. It is the inevitable trend of the progress of human civilization.

At a time when the PVC industry is booming all over the world, however, it is a pity that the market share of PVC furniture materials (including cabinets) in our country is less than 10%. Many consumers have not even heard of PVC as a furniture material, let alone know what PVC is. When German people have treated PVC as a high-grade, non-toxic, and pollution-free environmental protection material, why our Chinese domestic market share is still so small? Of course, there is the problem of consumption level, but it is mainly related to our consumers’ lack of correct understanding of PVC. It hindered the large-scale PVC furniture production. I believe that through the joint efforts of our companions and the maturity of the market, the PVC industry will surely reach a new level in the field of furniture.

PVC Wood Plastic sheet has better tensile strength, flexural strength, flexural modulus, and impact strength compared with other sheets. The reason is that there is a strong chemical reaction ability between lignin and PVC, that is, between proton donor and acceptor. In addition, the interaction between carbonyl groups on lignin molecules and hydrogen atoms on PVC molecules or between hydroxyl functional groups on lignin molecules and chlorine atoms on PVC molecules is conducive to the improvement of mechanical properties.

At present, the application of wood-based panels is mainly in the interior decoration and furniture industry. The wood-based panels used are mainly plates with urea-formaldehyde resin as the adhesive ( Such as particleboard, medium-density fiberboard, plywood, etc.). Compared with these traditional wood-based panels, wood-plastic panels mainly have the following advantages and characteristics:
Firstly, Urea-formaldehyde resin is not used in the production of wood-plastic composites. There is no release of formaldehyde adhesives. This formaldehyde-free product is in line with national environmental protection policy. They are really environmentally friendly materials for human health, which is incomparable to ordinary wood-based panels.

Secondly, PVC Wood Plastic Composites have characteristics of water resistance, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, moth resistance, self-extinguishing when leaving the fire. They have the processing characteristics of wood and plastic. Therefore, under different process conditions, the strength properties of Wood Plastic Composites will be significantly improved so that they can be used on occasions with high strength requirements.
Finally, wood chips, straw, waste paper, and other wastes can be used as lignin in Wood-Plastic Composites. Recycled waste thermoplastic resin can be used as plastic so as to achieve waste recycling. It has crucial environmental protection significance.

What is PUR hot melt adhesive?

I believe this question will confuse some people who have entered the furniture industry for a short time. As a professional processing manufacturer of PUR lamination, We would like to share with you what is PUR hot-melt adhesive, the conventional application and its use characteristic.

The full English name of PUR hot melt adhesive refers to reactive polyurethane hot melt adhesive. During the lamination process, the PUR adhesive will go through several chemical reaction. The Solid PUR is firstly heated and then contact the moisture in the air. After the chemical reaction and curing process, and It forms stronger bonding between the two different materials. PUR has a highly flexible and strong adhesion, and is suitable for a wide range of regional climates.

In the curing reaction of PUR hot melt adhesive, water molecules are involved, and the bonding effect of the finished product is excellent. It has high bonding strength for various non-metallic and special materials. It has the properties of irreversibility, temperature resistance and water resistance.

PUR is innocuous, it does not contain Benzen, Formaldehyde or solvents, and does not produce harmful substance release during lamination. It leaves no residue on the finished products.

PUR hot melt adhesive Lamination

PUR machine production line is suitable for laminating different materials on the surface of various plates. Its hot roll is coated with reactive hot melt adhesive (PUR) on the surface of the plate. The surface base material and the substrate are aligned and overlaid, and hydraulic back pressure is applied to achieve the bonding effect instantly. Its glue has high adhesion, cold resistance, high-temperature resistance, waterproof, environmental protection and other characteristics.

Application: At present, the conventional applications of PUR hot melt adhesive are as follows: Flat panel lamination, cladding layer and edge sealing.

Substrate material: PVC foam board, density board, multilayer board, solid wood board, wood plastic board, glass magnesium board, aluminum-plastic board, plywood, particleboard, etc
Surface laminate material: PVC film (high gloss, Matt), PP film, acrylic sheet, HPL, aluminum sheet, PET, PETG, wood veneer, etc.

Adhesive: Moisture-curing reactive polyurethane hot-melt adhesive

As the solvent-free adhesive, PUR will not volatilize and emissions any solvent during the whole compound process. Therefore, the long drying tunnel is unnecessary when using PUR. It is truly environment-friendly and non-toxic adhesive.

With the global awareness of environmental protection, many counties improve the regulations of environmental supervision. Over the last ten years, solvent-free laminating technology in the European and the North American market has occupied an important place; Meantimes, the demand for PUR lamination is also increasing year by year.
As a professional processing factory of PUR lamination, Skyline Composites provides the best and the most convenient solution for your laminated board project.

In processing PVC wood plastic foam board, the equipment can be divided into the single-layer skin foam board production line and the three-layer coextrusion foam board production line according to the processing and board types. According to the production process, it is divided into the twin-screw extrusion and the single screw extrusion.

(1) Single-layer skin foam board production line and three-layer coextrusion foam board production line

The single-layer skin foam plate production line adopts one main extruder to directly squeeze into the die for extrusion foaming molding, which has simple production process control and convenient equipment disassembly and cleaning.

The three-layer coextrusion foam plate production line adopts two extruders, one is the main extruder, and the other is the auxiliary extruder. The two extruders are placed at a certain angle. The auxiliary extruder extrudes the melt, which is evenly distributed to the upper and lower layers of the melt of the main extruder through the die distributor. The two non-foaming hard surfaces are obtained through die extrusion and cover the surface of the high foaming core composite plate products. It features large surface hardness, high core filling, high foaming, and low cost. But at the same time, its disadvantages are distinct. The production process is complex, the control requirements of the compound layer process formula are accurate, and the equipment disassembly and cleaning are difficult.

(2) Single screw extruder and twin screw extruder

The production process determines whether a single-screw extruder or twin-screw extruder is used in production. The single-screw extruder has one more granulation process than the twin-screw extruder in terms of product quality. The melt plasticization uniformity and the mixing of various additives are more uniform, and the product quality is better than the one-step twin-screw direct powder extrusion. In terms of the production process, the single-screw extruder has more granulation steps, which means that one more extruder increases energy consumption, workforce, and material resources, and the production cost is much higher than that of a twin-screw extruder. In terms of production speed, the twin-screw process has few steps and fast extrusion speed, and the efficiency is much higher than that of the single screw process. With the continuous improvement of the wood-plastic formula and the constant optimization of the twin-screw structure, the plate quality produced by the twin-screw has reached the level of single screw production.

Due to the characteristics of low energy consumption and high efficiency of twin-screw extruder, twin-screw extruder has completely replaced single screw extruder in the production of PVC wood plastic foam board.

Three-layer coextrusion foam board production line
Three-layer coextrusion foam board production line

PVC wood plastic foam board is a PVC core layer foam board with continuous hard skin and closed cell structure in the core, which is chemically foamed by the “Celuka” method. It is a new structural plate with uniform thickness made of various mixed PVC raw materials, wood fibers, and functional additives through a special wood plastic extruder at a specific temperature and pressure. Its skin is shaped by the sudden cooling of the external mold to form a new plate with non-foaming skin and foaming structure in the core layer.

Wood-plastic composites have a wide range of applications. Wood-plastic composites can be used to replace wood or wood materials.
Building structural materials: indoor and outdoor planks, fences, building templates, moisture-proof partitions, stair boards, handrails, door and window frames, water buildings, road boards, etc
PVC wood plastic foam board has been successfully used as building formwork in urbanization projects, square tunnels, and other projects.

Automobile manufacturing: door trim panel, bottom plate, seatback, instrument panel, armrest, seat, base, top plate, etc.

Logistics: Transportation pallets and export packaging pallets of various specifications, warehouse bedding plates, various packaging boxes, transportation glass shelves, etc.

Gardening: outdoor tables and chairs, courtyard armrest and decorative board, flower box, open-air floor, waste box, etc.

Interior decoration: various decorative strips, decorative plates, mirror frame strips, curtain rings and decorative parts, movable shutters, ceilings, wall panels, etc

Wood-plastic composites can also be used in the packaging industry, furniture manufacturing, composite pipes, railway sleepers, etc. it is believed that the application field of wood-plastic composites will be further broadened in the coming future.

PVC foam board can be used as furniture board, and its development trend is more and more popular in the world.

A wide range of laminated PVC foam board materials can be used for both modular furniture and kitchen cabinet production.

PVC board is used in kitchen decoration

PVC board has excellent chemical stability, corrosion resistance, high hardness, high strength, anti-ultraviolet (anti-ageing), fire retardant (with self-extinguishing), reliable insulation performance, smooth surface, tiny water absorption rate, no deformation, easy processing and other characteristics.

PVC foam board has a lightweight, smooth surface, good visual effect for furniture, and the strength of the material is improved after foaming, which can replace the wood board and extend service life. PVC foam board is generally used as the substrate material of furniture board. Different kinds of decorative materials are laminated on the substrate surface via PUR hot-melt adhesive machine, such as PVC decorative film, PET film, HPL, aluminum sheet, PETG film, PP film, etc. In addition, it is necessary to use an edge banding strip to seal the board edge after cutting. The finished board adds more durability, diversity and aesthetic result after lamination.

PVC board is used in decoration

The density of PVC board used in the furniture is not less than 0.45 g/cm3, and the ideal standard density is 0.50 g/cm3. Meanwhile, the 0.60 g/cm3 density of PVC board is also used in famous furniture brands. Using the 0.60 g/cm3 density coextrusion PVC foam board to make PVC bathroom cabinets, and because of its waterproof advantages, the product’s durability can reach more than 20 years.

In the past, many furniture factories chose PVC Cekuka foam board to make PVC bathroom cabinets. The reason is that the cost of PVC co-extruded board is higher than that of PVC Celuka board. But now, the production technology and formula have become mature. Some physical performance is much better than that of PVC Celuka Board. PVC Coextrusion Board can be a high-end product of PVC foam board.

Advantages of PVC furniture board:
Easy to install

People are more and more concerned about the safety of the products they choose to buy and use in their daily life or business projects. There are many options to protect belongings and buildings when selecting a product, such as Flame-Resistant & Flame-Retardant, Fire-Resistant & Fire-Retardant. We can Flame and fire interchangeably. The terms Flame Resistant and Fire Retardant are both commonly referred to as FR). But Resistant and Retardant describe two different product features.

In this article, we will guide you to make clear the main differences between fire-retardant and fire-resistant.

The main difference between fire-retardant materials and fire-resistant materials is how the material melts when exposed to fire and how long the material self-extinguishes.

Resistant is recognized as a material that is inherently resistant to catching fire (self-extinguishing) and does not melt or drip when exposed directly to extreme heat. When they catch fire if exposed directly to a flame, Flame-resistant materials are not likely to catch fire just from being near the fire. In the meantime, a fire-resistant material catch fire, it will have a hard time staying lit. These materials will choke the fire, causing it to extinguish.

Retardant is defined as a material that has been chemically treated to self-extinguish. The treated material can self-extinguish and does not melt or drip, therefore, cause less damage to humans. In a word, fire-retardant materials have been chemically treated to slow ignition, burning, or actually self-extinguish when exposed to an open flame. Original material needs chemically treated to retard the spread of flame.
