Rubberwood finger joint panel is lightweight, easy to transport and that is one of the main reasons why importers don’t hesitate to buy rubberwood finger-joint products thousand of miles from the East. Since it is light weight, it is also rather inexpensive to transport long distance.

There is a specific process through which partially finished rubberwood finger joint panel is produced. Here are the 6 major steps through which the finger-joint panel is produced:

1. The processed rubberwood sawn timber is usually very rough. And a process has to be undertaken to make the timber smooth. Machinery is used here to give a partial finish to the timber. The end result is a smooth rubberwood sawn timber which is very vital to produce a solid finger-joint panel.

2. The second process involves a bit of cutting & trimming. It also has a process of selecting the right rubber-wood timber. The process starts with the use of machinery where the machinery cuts the rubber wood timber into specific lengths of small and large timber sections.

Once the cutting & trimming is done, the partially finished rubberwood timber is checked thoroughly by a team of specialists to find out if each and every cut timber fits into the quality standards set by the company, Rubberwood Products Ltd.. The low quality partially finished timbers are removed from the selected ones, and the good ones are then taken to the rubberwood finger-joint panel production line.

It is then the process of arranging the partially finished rubberwood timbers of different dimensions are made:

3. The third process involves the use of machinery again, to cut two ends of the partially finished rubber-wood timber to form finger joints.

4. The process then takes a turn as high quality non-toxic water resistant adhesives glue is used to paste the finger joints. The process is used to form a rubberwood finger joint stick.

5. Partially processed finger-joint sticks are kept in equal sizes and aligned accordingly. Machinery is used to complete the process as the glued finger-joint sticks are kept in proper sizes.

6. The final process involves a final check before it is readied to be shipped into local market and different countries.

The export rubberwood finger-joint panels, finger-joint boards or finger-joint sticks can be used by manufacturers according to their own requirements, to produce high end rubberwood furniture and finger-joint floorings and table tops of different sizes and dimensions.


Rubber wood (Hevea Brasiliensis) is classified as a light hardwood and its pulp is a pale creamy white color when first cut. After it is kiln dried to extract moisture, a process that increases its stength and makes it easier to work with, it takes on a light brown color.

For many centuries countries such as Malaysia, with its tropical climite, have been used for rubber tree plantations. The sap from rubber trees grown on these plantations is used to produce latex. Typically a rubber tree will reach the end of its economic life cycle after 25 – 30 years of latex production.

Until recently, once the rubberwood trees had reach the end of their capacity to produce latex the trees were replaced and the old trees were burned as fuel.

As people have become aware of the disappearance large sections of the tropical rain forest and the problems this represents, switching to the use of a more easily replenished wood, has lead to an increasing interest in the more ecologically friendly hevea brasiliensis, also known as rubberwood.

Chosen for having some of the same basic characteristics as teakwood without the expense, Malaysia rubber wood is used in the manufacture of high-end furniture throughout Asia, Europe and North America. Since rubberwood has been found to have the stength of teak, and is as easy to work with as birchwood, Malaysia rubberwood as high-quality sawn rubberwood timber has recently started being imported to the U.S.

Malaysia rubber wood is now being used to produce both industrial and domestic products such as high-end parquet flooring, wooden household fixtures, both furniture and furniture components, as well as plywood and other building components and many other things.
