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.


Increasing Use of Eco-friendly Rubber Woods

by rwp-admin on 01/04/2015

Every day more and more uses are being found for rubber wood.

You know about rubberwood trees right?  They are the trees first grown for their sap, which is processed into latex.  The latex is used to make rubber products, so it its pretty obvious how much importance they have in our everyday lives.

The wood from these trees, grown in countries with tropical climates, is also gaining importance in our lives.  Its use in the wood products first came about in the 1960s.

Because the rubberwood trees are not grown specifically for the lumber, but instead have lumber as a by product, rubber wood is considered environmentally friendly (i.e. as a recycled wood).

Rubber wood was found to be one of the most durable hardwoods found, and was used increasingly to make furniture. It can be finished to look like many other types of wood, which adds to its versatility.

Pressurized preservative treating fresh rubberwood sawn timber with odorless, colorless borate solutions – now a standard industry practice for preventing decay and protecting the wood from termites – gives rubber wood trees a second life as eco-friendly building materials for a variety of commercial and domestic wood products (e.g. Recycled Rubber Wood Doormat).

From toys to tables, bathroom fixtures to counter tops, rubber wood is being used in more home furnishings everyday.

And now rubberwood finger-joint boards/panels are not far behind. These medium hardwood finger-joint boards are used in making floors, table tops and furniture found in our homes.
