Application of honeycomb composite board in furniture
China's furniture industry is growing at a rapid pace. By 2002, there were 50,000 furniture enterprises nationwide, with a total output value of 165 billion yuan and an export value of 5.417 billion US dollars, an increase of 36.5% compared with 2001. China has become a major furniture production and exporting country. It is expected that in the next 10 years, the demand will increase by 10%-15% per year. The furniture industry needs more than 40 million m3 of wood per year, and it has become a major timber user. However, China's timber supply is insufficient, and it needs to rely heavily on imports. According to statistics, the total amount of imported timber and forest products in 2001 reached more than 9 billion US dollars, which is the second largest product after petroleum products. For the sustainable development of the furniture industry, the promotion and use of honeycomb composite panels in the furniture industry has important practical significance.
Application range
Honeycomb composite panels can be made into a variety of thick plates larger than 18 mm, and are widely used in panel furniture, for example, for side panels, panels, ceilings, partitions, floors, door panels, partitions, and some decorative pieces. The thicker the plate, the better the performance of the honeycomb material; the thick plate also has good bending resistance for the dining table, coffee table, TV cabinet and so on. There are even furniture manufacturers who use it to make support legs for furniture, which shows the wide range of applications.
Application status of honeycomb paper core
At present, in Guangdong alone, there are more than 200 furniture enterprises using honeycomb paper cores. Many famous furniture companies in China, such as Fuyun, Dixin, Haworth, Hörmann, Wanlibao, Dynasty, Fuyu, Da Haoxingli, Gaofan, Tiancheng, Xintian, etc. have used honeycomb paper core to make some furniture parts; others include some IKEA OEM factories. But compared to the entire furniture industry, there are still very few companies that use honeycomb paper cores to produce furniture, and there is still a lot of room to be developed.
In the Hong Kong market, the use of high-quality honeycomb materials composite into high-grade panels, the production of high-end furniture is very popular, the user calls it "aircraft wood" (the aircraft uses a large number of honeycomb composite panels, hence the name). In the Japanese market, housewives appreciate the lightness of cellular furniture, and many Japanese merchants have clearly proposed to buy honeycomb furniture.
At present, there are several problems in the use of furniture:
(1) Due to the limited number of domestic honeycomb paper manufacturers, the technical strength is even stronger, which not only makes the products lack competition, but also has a certain monopoly on prices, and the technical services and training cannot keep up, hindering its Promotion.
(2) The honeycomb paper used in the market is mainly designed for packaging. Although it can also be used for furniture manufacturing, it lacks targeted research and development, and lacks corresponding indicators and process parameters when used.
(3) The lack of corresponding adhesive research and the study of the bonding mechanism between different materials have caused the blindness and potential quality hazard of enterprises when using adhesives.
(4) The state's advocacy of the concept of environmental protection is not broad enough, and the depth is too superficial. Generally, it pays more attention to the release of harmful gases in materials, but not enough attention to the performance of saving wood and energy, recycling, and weight reduction. Insufficient attention. This has also caused consumers to understand the concept of environmental protection, which is an important reason for the difficulty and slowness of promoting honeycomb composite panel furniture in furniture enterprises and in the market.
(5) Countries and industries lack relevant policies and regulations on honeycomb paper products, which also affects the promotion and popularization of honeycomb paper products.
China is a country with a large population and a large country of timber consumption. Saving wood and vigorously developing other environmentally friendly materials that replace wood are particularly important for China's economic development. Therefore, the state should formulate regulations on honeycomb paper products as soon as possible, invest funds to support the honeycomb paper industry, and help enterprises research and produce professional three-leaf Roots blower professional honeycomb paper products, and improve its technical services. Promote the system, use the media, vigorously promote and advocate the superiority of honeycomb paper materials and its various applications, accelerate its promotion and popularization in furniture, construction and packaging, so as to alleviate the pressure on the national economy caused by the lack of timber resources as soon as possible .
