Finally an environmentally friendly board product for the architecture, design and building industries
February 1st, 2008
Being in the architecture and design and building and construction industries, you see and use a lot of throwaway products such as MDF, particleboard and foam core. It can make you a little uncomfortable, especially if you are trying to conduct more sustainable business practices.
For an environmentally friendly alternative, ‘X-Board’ and ‘X-Board Plus’ from Xanita have all the advantages of other board products, without the environmental cringe factor.
Xanita means “board” in Greek, and they are leading the way in the manufacture of VOC-free fibre board using 100% post-consumer, recycled paper waste.
Using a highly crush-resistant recycled kraft core, with an internal honeycomb structure, ‘X-Board Plus’ is approximately 75% lighter than MDF or particleboard and can be machined and direct edge-banded as normal. Boards can be supplied raw or pressed with timber veneers or decorative laminates.
With a number of options, Xanita have a board product for your every need. Recycled core thickness is 18, 25, 30 or 50mm, and there is standard or e-zero MDF, particleboard or plywood as the board’s outer skins. A timber veneer or decorative laminate can be applied to one or both sides of the board, which can then be cut, edge-band, lacquer or post-process boards to your design specifications.
A full range of lightweight board fittings for ‘X-Board Plus’ will be available from February, from Häfele Australia. For easy access for all your project needs, ‘X-Board Plus’ is now readily available, being manufactured under licence in Australia and distributed nationally.
