PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Laminex Group manufactures particleboard from wood chips and fibre sourced from plantations and sawmills carrying Australian Forestry Standard (AFS) Sustainable Forest Management Certification and Chain of Custody and Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes (PEFC) certification, ensuring that the main raw material for the products is legally sourced and sustainably harvested.

The wood fibre undergoes a quality inspection to ensure consistency before urea formaldehyde resin is added and the boards are pressed, dried and cut to size. The whole process obtains almost 2/3 of its energy from burning otherwise unusable waste wood fibre, greatly reducing the demand on fossil fuels.

The finished product is a pre-decorated particleboard panel with a hardwearing melamine decorative surface on both sides. Product is packaged in cover boards with PET strapping and transported on pallets that may be recycled.

Formica® Melamine Doors are recommended for application areas of high humidity, such as Kitchen cupboard doors, bathroom vanities, laundry cupboards shelving, wall panelling, domestic and commercial furniture applications.
