What do furniture of?
Probably, many of us, buying furniture, do not ask a similar question. Until recently and I did not think of it.
Recently in furniture store became the involuntary witness of detailed instructing of the buyer the seller. They talked about wear resistance whether MDF, whether a chipboard. How many their conversation lasted, I do not know, but the question interested me as in the next half a year I should buy new kitchen. And I decided to ask about it at the friends who were already in time to get treasured kitchen. Their answers were low-distinct, the fact that the furniture from the massif of wood in the nature does not exist today unless furniture legs only was true.
For more professional answers and councils I addressed the expert. I think that its councils will help also you with the choice not only kitchens, but also other pieces of furniture.
About furniture legs from the massif of wood friends were right.
Other details can be cut out from a piece of a tree, but it is very difficult. The similar subject will cost exclusively much as the technology of its production is labor-consuming and impractical. Besides behind furniture from an integral piece of wood special leaving is necessary (maintenance of constant humidity indoors), otherwise such furniture will dry out and is deformed.
Is much more practical to make, for example, a table-top, having connected among themselves several wooden whetstones or boards. The received material as well as an integral piece of wood, for 100% is eco-friendly and is widely used in production of furniture. It is called the glued or type-setting massif. Often it is covered with an interline interval of more valuable wood. For example, the pine is hidden a thin layer of a nut. The interline interval (from the German Span - shaving) usually happens deciduous breeds. The main thing that fibers created beautiful drawing. From a tree huge shaving is peeled (along or across a trunk), the turned-out sheets connect among themselves and revet the chosen material.
Unlike the integral massif, glued is steadier against fluctuations of climatic indicators of environment.
One more widespread wood material is a plywood. It consists of three or more sheets of an interline interval. Plywood - rather strong, unpretentious material, besides not afraid of neither temperature fluctuations, nor humidity. Unlike the massif, sheets of plywood can be bent.
Chipboards (drevesno - a struzhechny plate), LDSP (laminated by a chipboard) are popular. These materials can quite be carried to eco-friendly as as the main raw materials in them natural wood is used, and the amount of formaldehyde in binding pitches is insignificant.
How to distinguish good LDSP from bad? On color and the invoice it will not turn out, the finishing covering will prevent. Bad will be given by the characteristic smell amplifying when opening doors and boxes. In the certificate the material class on the content of formaldehyde has to be specified furniture from a chipboard who it is necessary to ask sellers, there are determined norms. There are plates in which formaldehyde is not used at all, but they are almost not used in furniture from - for mad the prices. Her main buyers are Japanese.
LDSP possesses high rigidity, is convenient in processing, strongly holds screws and nails and costs not much.
And one more widespread material - MDF (from English MDF - Medium Density Fiberboard) drevesno - a fibrous plate of average density. The plate is done of very small wood particles by pressing without binding elements. This material differs from a chipboard in higher durability, moisture-proofness, wide range of the sizes and possible ways of processing (for example, it is possible to enamel it). Naturally, as is of furniture from MDF more expensive, than a chipboard.
I decided on the choice of material for kitchen. Successful and to you purchases!
