There are seven (7) stages in the production of high-density fiber boards. In sequence, these are the following:

A. DRYING
Fresh bagasse from the sugar mills is dried either by solar or mechanical drying until moisture content is reduced to about 10-12%.

B. CHOPPING
Dried bagasse is conveyed to the chopper where chopping is done until it is reduced to mesh size of 8-10 mm.

C. MIXING
Chopped bagasse is now brought to the silo by a pneumatic conveyor. Mechanically, this is conveyed to the batch weigher to determine its weight. Resin is then sprayed evenly at about 2.5-4% of the whole mixture. The mixture is dropped to the mat layer where the caul plate is placed underneath to catch the mixture. Additional anti-fungi and anti-termite solutions is sprayed to the mixture to arrive to a desired moisture content.

D. PRESSING
The mixture is now ready to be pressed to the pre-set thickness by the use of a hydraulic press and steam-heated plates. Pressure is applied to achieve the desired thickness of the board.

E. CUTTING
The pressed boards are cut into a specific standard size of 4 feet (1.22 meters) wide by 8 feet (2.44 meters) long.

F. CLASSIFYING AND CURING
The newly-formed boards are inspected and classified by the Quality Assurance personnel based on the standards set by the Company and the industry. These are then cured for a number of days based on the thickness to stabilize the boards.

G. PALLETIZING
Boards which passed the QA inspection are carefully piled in wooden pallets at different quantities per thickness of the boards.
