Craftsmanship in panel board production


The journey of medium-density fibreboard (MDF) begins with the harvesting of wood fibres, mainly from agro-forestry Eucalyptus hardwoods. These fibres are then combined with a high-quality resin binder, paraffin wax, additives and formed into panels under high temperature and pressure.

The resulting composite material is sanded to a smooth finish, cut to size, and packaged for distribution. Here is a detailed overview of the process of manufacturing:

•        The process begins with the selection of raw materials, typically Eucalyptus hardwood that are sourced from sustainable forestry practices.

•        The raw wood material is chipped, and then processed into fine wood fibres through thermos-mechanical refining techniques. These fibres are screened to remove impurities and achieve the desired consistency.

•        The wood fibres are blended with a resin binder, such as urea-formaldehyde or melamine-urea-formaldehyde, which acts as an adhesive to hold the fibres together during the pressing stage.

•        The blended wood fibre and resin mixture is then deposited onto a forming belt or mat where it is distributed evenly to create a uniform layer of material with pre-determined thickness and density.

•        The mat of wood fibres is conveyed into a hydraulic press where it undergoes a combination of high temperature and pressure. This process thermally cures the resin binder, bonding the fibres together to form a dense and homogenous panel.

•        Once the pressing phase is complete, the MDF panel is carefully cooled and trimmed to the required dimensions. It may also undergo surface sanding or additional treatments to achieve a smooth finish and precise thickness.

•        The finished MDF panels are subjected to quality control checks to ensure dimensional accuracy, uniform density and strength properties. Samples are often tested for internal bonding strength, bending strength, and moisture resistance.

•        Finally, the high-quality MDF panels are stacked, packaged and prepared for distribution to various industries such as furniture manufacturing, construction, cabinetry and interior design.

Wooden flooring

The production of pre-laminated MDF involves an additional step of applying an impregnated paper laminate to the surface of the plain MDF panel. This laminate can mimic the appearance of wood grain, stone, or other materials, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the final product.

Wooden flooring is generally crafted with premium HDF boards known for durability and visual appeal. The laminate flooring construction consists of four layers: a wear-resistant surface layer with aluminium oxide coating, a decorative paper layer for wood grain appearance, an HDF core in 8-mm and 12-mm thicknesses, and balancing paper to prevent warping.

Additionally, there are advanced presses for bubble-free lamination and dimensional stability.

The use of true high-density fibreboard enhances durability, meeting global standards for abrasion resistance. A wax sealant may also be applied for moisture protection.

High quality resins during the manufacturing process, comprising of optimal glue compositions with high solid content for superior adhesive quality, result in enhanced product durability and consistency.

Various locking systems are designed and incorporated to ensure effortless installation. The flooring profiles are sealed against moisture, preventing edge swelling and joint weakening.

Matching accessories crafted from HDF material provide additional protection for a complete flooring solution.

Plywood production

The production of plywood involves layering thin veneers of wood at perpendicular angles and bonding them together with adhesive under controlled pressure and temperature.

This cross-grain construction imparts exceptional strength, stability and resistance to warping or splitting. State-of-the-art manufacturing facilities ensure that each plywood sheet meets exacting standards for thickness, flatness and structural integrity.

•        High-quality wood logs are rotary cut into thin veneer sheets. These veneer sheets are then sorted based on their quality, grain pattern, and characteristics for end-use as face veneer and matt overlay in plywood production.

•        The core of the plywood is made by layering these veneer sheets on top of each other with the grain direction alternating perpendicular to each other. This cross-grain configuration enhances the strength and stability of the plywood panel.

•        A precise amount of adhesive, typically a phenol-formaldehyde resin, is applied to the veneer layers. The face veneer, matt overlay, and core veneers are assembled in a specific order to create a uniform panel.

•        The assembled plywood stack is placed inside a hydraulic press machine. Heat and pressure are applied to the stack, activating the adhesive and bonding the veneer layers together. This process forms a strong and durable plywood panel.

•        After the pressing process, the plywood panel is cooled gradually to stabilise its structure. It is then trimmed to the desired dimensions and shape using precision cutting equipment, ensuring clean edges and uniformity.

•        The matt overlay is applied to the face veneer surface of the plywood panel. This provides a smooth, matte finish that enhances the aesthetic appeal and protects the face veneer from damage, abrasion and moisture.

•        The plywood panel with the face veneer, matt overlay, and core is sanded to remove any imperfections, excess adhesive, and to achieve a uniform surface texture. Additional finishing treatments, such as coatings or sealants, may be applied for added protection and aesthetic appeal.

•        Each plywood panel undergoes rigorous quality control checks to ensure adherence to dimensional tolerances, structural integrity, adhesion strength and surface finish. Samples are tested for durability, moisture resistance and overall performance.

•        The finished plywood panels are carefully inspected, labelled and packaged for distribution to various industries, including furniture manufacturing, cabinetry, construction, and interior design projects. Proper packaging ensures the protection of the plywood during transit and storage.

Doors, blockboards

The production of water-proof flush doors begins with the assembly of a preservative-treated and kiln-seasoned solid core – comprising selected, often imported, wood stiles and rails – encased in double-layered cross bands.

Premium face veneer is used on the top and bottom of the construction and bonded with high quality boiling-water-proof-type synthetic resin. The door is then pressed and cured to create a seamless surface finish, dimensionally stable and warp-free.

Good door manufacturing process focuses on precision engineering, sound insulation and aesthetic appeal, resulting in doors that combine functionality with elegance and high durability.

Blockboards are crafted by sandwiching a core of solid wood strips between layers of veneer or plywood. This unique construction technique imparts superior strength and stiffness to the board, making it ideal for applications requiring enhanced load-bearing capacity.



Precision machining and assembly processes are essential to guarantee that each blockboard meets rigorous performance standards while offering versatility in design and customisation.
