The most famous and commonly used wood particle panels. Medium Density Fiberboard is produced with wood fibres that are pressed together at high temperatures with glue or resin. The family comprises several product categories, including fireproof and water repellent, differentiated by fibre density and the work processes involved. They are the ideal solution for matt or satin-finish lacquered furniture items.
Particle board panels are made of particles derived from the working of wood, made into a paste with binding materials and pressed. Their light weight and excellent firmness make them ideal for use in many décor projects and they are processed like solid wood. Several varieties are available, according to the type of particle, weight and kind of binder used.
Plywood panels are made by uniting several layers of thin wooden sheets. The sheets, always odd in number, are bound together with the fibres laid in alternating directions. Overlaying crossed fibres ensures excellent stability and strength. Plywood is easy to cut and drill and features good hold of screw fasteners.
This technical wood panel is produced by continuous cycle pressing (structural co-laminating). Internally it comprises wood chippings and both surfaces are co-laminated with high-density wood fibre to strengthen technical and mechanical performance. This produces a uniform structure with good compressive and tensile strength.
An ideal solution for structural applications.
Laminates are made by facing particle board or MDF panels with a plastic sheet impregnated with melamine resins. Laminates are commonly used by the furniture industry, due to its practical and hygienic nature. The plastic facing prevents liquid absorption. Available in a vast range of colours, it can also be made to look like wood.
An innovative line of melamine-faced panels to cater for the aesthetics of contemporary design.
Inspired by brushed resins, it comes in a range of colours from grey to beige, through the different shades of sand. Surfaces are matt, soft touch, scratch and abrasion resistant, and micro scratches can be repaired by the application of heat.
