Frequently Asked Question

Why are some core of particle boards look darker than others?
  • Some people may have noticed that some particle boards differ in color; some are darker and some lighter.  You may ask is one better than the other.  The answer is that the color of particle board is not an indication of quality nor environmental friendliness.  It is an indication of wood species.  Core made from softwood such as pine typical of the Pacific Northwest will have a lighter color while hardwood core will have a darker color.
