While T&G chipboard is not as sturdy as timber, it has numerous beneficial properties. It is denser, economical and displays excellent uniformity, making it an ideal flooring option. Its unique features and versatility have various applications, from making furniture and cabinets to flooring and general building work. Let us look at T&G chipboards and the different types available.
What Is T&G Chipboard?
T&G chipboard is from sawdust compressed and bound together with resin to produce a smooth but strong product. Most people prefer T&G chipboard flooring due to its quality performance. The T&G (Tongue and Groove) added to the chipboard sheets’ sides make them easier to fit on floor surfaces.
