Laminated Chipboard

Laminated Chipboard Panels

Laminated chipboard panels are produced when a material is required to be thicker than the maximum single ply caliper of 1250mic (1.25mm). Two or more plies then have to be laminated together.

Here, at Preston Board, we manufacture laminated chipboard panels using a reel to sheet laminator. Poly vinyl acetate (PVA) glue is applied in between each ply to bond them together. This operation adds strength to the finished laminated board.

Unlined chipboard and Unlined greyboards can be supplied by Preston Board and Packaging in calipers ranging from 300micron (.3mm) up to 5000mic (5mm) thick.

On the reel to sheet laminating machine, board from 600micron (.6mm) up to 5000 micron (5mm) in thickness can be produced up to a maximum size of 2000 x 3200mm.

On the laminator at Preston board we can combine a variety of paper and board substrates to provide different finishes and strengths to the end product.

Unlaminated Unlined Chipboard

Up to 1250mic (1.25mm) can be manufactured in a single ply straight off the board machine. For calipers above this, plies of material have to be laminated together on specialist machinery to build up the thickness.

Thinner sheets of chipboard paper from 80gsm in weight can also be supplied in material often called test liner. This is a product produced on a paper making machine from 100% waste paper similar to unlined.

Single ply unlined chipboard can be supplied sheeted by Preston Board, up to a maximum size of  2000 x 3200mm
