The masonite is a material composed by pressed wood fibre, usually without addition of sticky substances. The realization of this material is very similar to the paper one: wood is worn out and smashed, then mixed with water and sticky substances. This mixture is cut by a machinery, then placed on steel sheets with a thin stainless steel net, crushed and cooked in a press. The press has a variable temperaure depending on the mixture thickness and a pressure of about 300 bar. After few minutes of cooking, the masonite is ready to be cut according to the desired dimension. It's usually produced in panels of variable depth (from 1,5 to 12 mm) and used as economic back face of furniture and drawers as a replacement for plywood or common wood.
