P3 Moisture Resistant Chipboard

Moisture resistant chipboard panels, suitable for furniture applications and wall partitions where exposure to moisture is possible.

Similar to Furniture Grade Chipboard, P3 Moisture Resistant Chipboard is easy to cut, saw and generally machine but has the added attribute of moisture resistance thanks to its glue bond. As a result, expansion and swelling when exposed to humidity is kept minimal, making it ideal for applications in bathrooms and kitchens where humidity can fluctuate but quality and performance must remain stable.

Commonly dyed green to signify moisture resistant properties.


Typical Applications
  • Kitchens
  • Bathrooms
  • Washrooms
  • Partitions
  • Packing


Applicable Standards
  • BS EN 312 – Particleboard specifications

Chipboard is commonly manufactured with around 65%-70% recycled material and is further recyclable at the end of its life cycle.
