Static bending strength test
The quality of Green River particleboard is forged in a variety of distinctive ways:
- By laboratory testing of samples taken at different stages of the manufacturing process
- By the use of online quality assurance gauges at key stages of the manufacturing process
- By final visual inspection for surface and edge quality
- By the use of state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment
- By a Quality Management System certified to ISO 9001:2015
When the boards are freshly out of the factory, they are not immediately packaged on the spot and sent to different parts of the world. An essential step must be taken before that: quality tests!
Green River particleboard is an engineered wood panel which is produced to international standards. The Quality Management System for the manufacturing process is certified to ISO 9001: 2015. Low formaldehyde emission boards complying with several country-specific standards are available to ensure your family’s health and safety.
As particleboard is an engineered wood panel, laboratory testing is carried out on samples of board at pre-determined intervals to ensure the board properties comply with specifications and to adjust the manufacturing process as necessary. The principal tests are static bending strength, stiffness, swelling rate, screw holding strength and formaldehyde emission.
Three short video clips highlight the measurements and inspections made throughout the manufacturing process to assure the quality of finished board from Green River Panels.
Green River has made significant investments to equip its laboratories with modern apparatus for the periodic testing of board samples. One such device is the IMAL IB700 Universal Testing Machine which is designed to quickly and accurately test the mechanical properties of wood based panels to ensure compliance with relevant standards.
