About

Trade Essentials® E0 MR Particleboard

TOP 3 Benefits:

  • Health & Ecotoxicity

• Biodiversity
• Carbon Sink

The Laminex Group manufactures MDF 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 particleboard is a three layered board, with fine particles on the top and bottom surfaces, and larger wood flakes in the middle. The wood particles are pressed and bonded together with resin creating a tight compact panel that can be machined easily.
