BACKGROUND

Board is produced from pulp by foam forming and pressing. Foam forming enables production of a vast variety of fibre-based materials. Material of these boards contain only pulp and small amount of additives (like foaming additive).


CHARACTERISTICS

Density profile of these foam formed pulp boards (resembling plaster board) can be adjusted. Board surface can be designed – printed or patterned.


TECHNICAL DATA

Bending stiffness for the commercial peeled plaster board reference was 1.13 ± 0.13 MPa and correspondingly for the foam formed pulp board 2.95 ± 0.43 MP.

Maximum deflection for the commercial peeled plaster board was 0.5 ± 0.1 mm and correspondingly for the foam formed pulp board 14.45 ± 0.38 mm.
