Title: PANELS INCLUDING RENEWABLE COMPONENTS AND METHODS FOR MANUFACTURING SAME
Abstract:
A panel includes about 0.1 % to about 95% by weight of a ground renewable component. In an embodiment, the panel has at least one core comprising: from about 0.1 % to about 95% by weight of the ground renewable component; from about 0.1 % to about 95% by weight of one or more fibers; and from about 1 % to about 30% by weight of one or more binders, all based on dry panel weight. In an embodiment, the ground renewable component has a particle size distribution whereby less than 5% of the particles are retained by a mesh screen with openings of about 0.312 inches and less than 5% of the particles pass through a mesh screen with openings of about 0.059 inches. A method for manufacturing such panels is also provided.
