What is a composite panel?
A product consisting of wood, plant particles or fibers, bonded together by an adhesive such as a synthetic resin or binder. Examples include plywood, particle-board, OSB, and MDF. Visit the Composite Panel Association for more info.
What is MDF?
Medium Density Fiberboard is an engineered wood product made from wood fiber bundles and resin, extruded onto a conveyor in a “mat” form then pressed to a given thickness. MDF provides a smooth surface, but like particleboard it is denser and heavier than veneer core.
What is Particleboard?
Particleboard is an engineered wood product manufactured from wood chips and a resin, which, like medium density fiberboard is heavier and does not have the strength of veneer core plywood. Particleboard is a type of composite panel, but it is made up of larger pieces of wood rather than fiber bundles as used in MDF. Particleboard also provides a smooth surface, but does not have the strength of veneer core plywood, and because of the coarse nature of the particles, the edges must be treated in some fashion in the finished product. Columbia does not manufacture particleboard, but can source it in standard UF and no added urea formaldehyde options as a core in decorative hardwood plywood construction.
What is Classic Core?
Classic Core utilizes veneer inner plies in all but those adjacent to the face and back. The outer plies are made of thin MDF to provide the panel with the smooth surface characteristics of MDF and particleboard but with less weight and improved strength. Columbia makes several types of Classic Core products. Standard Classic Core is manufactured with UF MDF. If your project requires formaldehyde-free PureBond Classic Core, this must be specified during the bid process and at time of order. Availability and lead-times for PureBond Classic Core may vary.
What is the difference between Hardboard and Fibrex?
Hardboard is a composite wood product utilizing an older wet process technology. FIBREX® is a thin high-density composite panel product manufactured primarily from hardwood fibers and resins, treated under heat and pressure. FIBREX® is processed using an environmentally friendly dry process, eliminating waste water concerns.
What is Veneer Core?
Veneer core is constructed with one or more layers of relatively thick veneers peeled from abundantly available species typically characterized by their structural properties and usual lack of aesthetic appeal. These veneer layers (or plies) are laid up and balanced in alternating cross bands for stability and strength. Any decorative thin face of a wood species can be applied to the front and back of the panel. Compared to MDF and particleboard cores, veneer core offers strength, weight and screw-holding advantages.
What is Rotary Cut?
Rotary cutting is a method used to peel a log into thin sheets of wood as if unrolled from a spool, like paper towels . Rotary cut decorative veneer can give a variegated grain appearance, and can vary tremendously. It is usually the least expensive veneer style. Rotary cutting is the only way to achieve a 48″ wide whole-piece face.
What is Plain Sliced?
Plain slicing (also known as Plain Sawn or Flat Cut) a log produces thin veneers that are no wider than the log and have a pronounced repeating grain pattern. These pieces must be combined to make a plywood face by “matching” the pieces as desired by the customer.
What is Rift cut?
A log is mounted and rotated against a blade , which is set at an angle approximately 15 degrees off center. This cut produces a straight grain.
What is Recon (Reconstituted plywood)?
Recon veneers are made from secondary wood species (generally Italian poplar or obeche) that are sliced, dyed, layered, and laminated in alternating layers and in specific ways in order to represent a different species. The process produces veneers that are natural looking.
Our manufacturing division caters to the entire North American market producing slotwall, perfwall and beadboard. This division is also equipped to provide cut to size and lamination requirements.
Created in 1995, we started with a capability of producing up to 10,000 panels per year.
Today, in our new state of the art facility, we will produce over 100,000 panels a year.
