For the production of ROMP furniture we use environmentally friendly, reliable and durable materials. Such as: MDF, chipboard, plywood, veneer, glass, textiles.
MDF – medium density fiberboard
Environmentally friendly material as an additional binder is not used. It is made by dry pressing of fine wood chips at high temperature and pressure. Well-conditioned. It outweighs natural wood in moisture resistance and mechanical characteristics. Among the main advantages of MDF are:
- A sufficient level of softness, due to which MDF is very easily worked with the finest processing, which makes it favorite material of furniture makers and designers, as it allows to realize the most brave decisions. Despite the fact that MDF is used in many industries, mainly MDF is a furniture material.
- MDF has redeemed all the advantages of wood, and it is several times cheaper.
- The lifetime of MDF products is many times longer than the lifetime of solid wood products.
Chipboard is a material made by hot pressing of dried sawdust (wood-flakes) and substances that fasten sawdust together. Synthetic resins (formaldehyde, phenol-formaldehyde) are used as such substances. Due to the resins additives chipboard gets special strength and durability. Chipboard doesn’t have such natural wood defects as knots and internal voids.
Despite the low price, chipboard outstands with its good strength, sufficient rigidity, uniform composition, as well as it is easy to condition. Chipboard perfectly holds the screws that are fastening all furniture construction.
The main advantages of chipboard:
- low cost;
- easy to condition;
- uniform composition;
- environmental friendliness.
Plywood is a wood-containing material with a thickness of 3 to 32 mm, as a rule, having a layered structure obtained by gluing together with special technologies several thin sheets of wood (2-4 mm thick), the so-called veneer sheets. Veneer in turn is made directly from wood by processing it. For the manufacture of plywood veneer, only coniferous and broadleaved trees are used, namely: larch, birch, spruce, pine, maple, fir, etc. The strength of plywood sheets is ensured by the fact that during their production each subsequent veneer layer is glued to the previous one in a special way, so that their fibers are strictly perpendicular to each other.
Benefits of plywood:
- has almost equal strength in all directions;
- little warp and crack;
- bends easily when performing difficult design ideas;
- never has through shakes.
Veneer is a thin layer of wood with texture of grain, produced by peeling, slicing, or sawing logs. Furniture made of veneer occupies an intermediate position between furniture made of chipboard and solid wood – on the one hand it is more expensive than furniture made of chipboard and cheaper than furniture made of solid wood, on the other hand, decorative properties of veneer are not inferior to solid wood. Veneer made it possible to make lighter and less expensive furniture by reducing dramatically the amount of wood used to make it.
To veneer means to glue the veneer onto a stable base (MDF, chipboard, plywood, etc.). This made it possible to produce finished products from wood, not being deformation and cracks prone, that is so common for solid wood.
The advantages of veneer:
- perfect appearance;
- easy to produce;
- duration in service (not afraid of humidity and temperature, do not crack).
Glass is one of the most important materials that has been actively used in the manufacture of modern furniture for years. Products made of durable and beautiful material can be found more and more often nowadays. This material is considered to be a natural partner of light. Glass transmits, focuses, defuses, diffuses or reflects light. Glass receives new operational and decorative qualities due to modern technology. It is perfectly combined with stone, metal and wood, awakes designers to create beautiful using directions and effects.
This natural and environmentally friendly material makes it possible to make the interiors more airy, elegant and light. Very often glass is used in modern design directions.
The choice of seating furniture is a very crucial moment in the arrangement of the room. When choosing seating furniture, first of all it is necessary to pay attention to the upholstery material, which is a kind of “clothing” for seating furniture.
Upholstery fabrics must have the following set of properties:
- have high resistance to abrasion;
- color fastness;
Furniture fabrics texture may include various yarns (fibers) – acrylic, cotton, flax, nylon, polyester, silk, viscose, wool. Both the combination of fibers and the method of making fabrics together create different types of furniture fabrics.
As for their texture furniture fabrics can be divided into natural, synthetic and artificial.
