X-Board Plus

X-Board Plus from Xanita

By: Xanita  06-Jul-2011

Every year, 1,500,000 cubic metres of MDF and particleboard is produced in Australia using virgin wood fibres and non-recyclable fibre bonding agents such as urea formaldehyde resin. Much of this material is disposed to landfill as household and commercial furniture and doors are disposed of during refurbishment projects.

Xanita's proprietary manufacturing process reduced the reliance on virgin wood fibres by channeling recovered and recycled cardboard boxes and sugar cane waste and converting this into a high-strength corrugated fibreboard core board, called "X-Core," which delivers a host of benefits to all involved in the supply chain when this is skinned with rigid panels to make a fit-for-purpose, lightweight composite board.
 
X-Board Plus (XB+) consists of X-Core panels pressed both sides with E-Zero MDF, particleboard, Masonite or plywood, creating a lightweight composite panel, which can be direct edge banded without infill rails.

As a general guide, the thicker the overall composite panel, the more likely this will compete in price versus laying up two sheets of solid MDF or particleboard to create a chunky, lightweight panel, from say 38mm to 58mm in overall thickness.
Our panel-pressing partners can press, for example, 3.6mm veneered plywood skins onto 10mm gauge X-Core to create ultra-lightweight, flexurally strong panels commonly used in the interior fit-outs of yachts, boats and caravans, where sailing or towing performance is increased through weight-savings. Alternatively, they can press 9mm moisture-resistant particleboard onto 30mm X-Core to produce 48mm thick kitchen benchtops, that can be square-formed.
