Formica® Decorated E0 MR Particleboard


The product has achieved GreenRate Level A and LCARate Gold Plus, certified under Global GreenTag Standard V3.2

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 melamine-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 stable homogeneous board with a decorated surface in a range of Lamiwood solid colours, patterns and woodgrains. Product is packaged in coverboards with PET strapping and transported on pallets that may be recycled.

Formica® Decorated E0 MR Particleboard is recommended for interior applications only and is suitable for kitchen cupboards, laundry cupboards, vanity units, shelving, wall linings, partitions, built-in furniture, and all detail joinery where a moisture resistant decorative board is required.
