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

Trade Essentials® Whiteboard E1 STD & MR Particleboard is recommended for high humidity applications or areas where accidental wetting may occur. Product is suitable for interior applications only including kitchen cupboards, bathroom vanities, laundry cupboards, shelving, wall lining (when used with suitable feature jointing systems) and.all commercial and domestic furniture
