Lightweight Particleboards - Specifications

This European Technical Specification specifies the requirements for uncoated particleboards for use in dry conditions in non load-bearing applications with density below 600 kg/m3.
This Technical Specification applies to particleboard which is mostly homogenous and continuous in its composition and which does not contain hollow spaces, chambers or other type of cavities which can be encountered as honeycombs in sandwich panels or as tubes in extruded boards.
This Technical Specification does not give requirements for extruded particleboards (see EN 14755), flaxboards (see EN 15197) and sandwich panels.
NOTE   Typical applications for lightweight boards are in furniture and non-structural applications e.g. in doors, packaging.

Leichte Spanplatten - Anforderungen

Diese Europäische Technische Spezifikation legt Anforderungen an unbeschichtete Spanplatten mit einer Rohdichte unter 600 kg/m3 für die Verwendung im Trockenbereich für nicht tragende Zwecke fest.
Diese Technische Spezifikation gilt für Spanplatten mit einer größtenteils homogenen und einheitlichen Zusammensetzung und ohne Zwischenräume, Kammern oder andere Arten von Hohlräumen, die als Waben in Sandwichplatten oder als Röhren in Strangpressplatten vorkommen können.
Diese Technische Spezifikation gilt nicht für Strangpressplatten (siehe EN 14755), Flachsspanplatten (siehe EN 15197) und Sandwichplatten.
ANMERKUNG   Typische Anwendungen für leichte Platten sind Möbel und Anwendungen für nicht tragende Zwecke, z. B. in Türen, Verpackungen.

Panneaux de particules légers - Spécifications

La présente spécification technique prescrit les exigences pour les panneaux de particules non revêtus de masse volumique inférieure à 600 kg/m3, pour un usage non travaillant en milieu sec.
La présente spécification technique s’applique aux panneaux de particules dont la composition est en général homogène et continue et qui ne contiennent aucun vide, aucune chambre ou d’autres types de cavités pouvant être présentes, comme les nids d’abeilles alvéolés dans les panneaux sandwich ou les tubes dans les panneaux extrudés.
La présente spécification technique ne définit pas d’exigences pour les panneaux de particules extrudés (voir l’EN 14755), ni pour les panneaux de lin (voir l’EN 15197) ou les panneaux sandwich.
NOTE   Les panneaux légers sont habituellement utilisés dans l’ameublement et pour un usage non structurel, comme par exemple dans les portes, l’emballage.

Lahke iverne plošče - Specifikacije

Standard CEN/TS 16368 določa zahteve za neprevlečene iverne plošče, ki se jih ne uporablja kot nosilne plošče, za uporabo v suhih razmerah z gostoto, nižjo od 600 kg/m3. Ta tehnična specifikacija velja za iverne plošče, ki so po sestavi večinoma homogene in neprekinjene in ki ne vsebujejo votlih predelov, odprtin ali drugih vrst vdolbin, ki jih lahko najdemo v sendvič ploščah v obliki satovja ali v stisnjenih ploščah v obliki cevi. Ta tehnična specifikacija ne določa zahtev za stisnjene iverne plošče (glej EN 14755), upognjene plošče (glej EN 15197) in sendvič plošče.

This Technical Specification (CEN/TS) was approved by CEN on 13 January 2014 for provisional application.

The period of validity of this CEN/TS is limited initially to three years. After two years the members of CEN will be requested to submit their
comments, particularly on the question whether the CEN/TS can be converted into a European Standard.

CEN members are required to announce the existence of this CEN/TS in the same way as for an EN and to make the CEN/TS available
promptly at national level in an appropriate form. It is permissible to keep conflicting national standards in force (in parallel to the CEN/TS)
until the final decision about the possible conversion of the CEN/TS into an EN is reached.

CEN members are the national standards bodies of Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia,
Finland, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania,
Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and United
