Made mainly from debarked pine and spruce wood, SWISS KRONO MDF excels with consistently high-quality fibre and a light colour. Owing to its fine fibre structure, this classic material is ideally suited for working and shaping.
The production of SWISS KRONO MDF (medium-density fibreboard) synthesis of a natural raw material and innovative technology. We produce our versatile SWISS KRONO MDF boards in our plant in Heiligengrabe, Germany. They have a bulk density of about 680 to 810 kg/cu.m and boast high bending strength and strong internal bonds.
The raw material we use to make our MDF boards is high-quality coniferous wood from debarked pine and spruce logs; mainly fresh thinnings from sustainably managed forests are used. First the wood is refined into fibre, then mixed with a binder and finally gently pressed. The result is an engineered wood product with a homogeneous structure both longitudinally and laterally: eco-friendly boards that are easy to work and use and are suitable for a vast range of furniture and interior applications.
SWISS KRONO MDF – raw is available in thicknesses from 12 to 30 mm and complies with the CARB (California Air Resources Board) Phase 2 standard on formaldehyde emissions.
In addition to their multifunctional properties, SWISS KRONO MDF products also actively help to protect the climate. Each cubic metre of SWISS KRONO MDF stores about 1000 kg of CO2 and keeps it bound up until the end of the product’s useful life.
All SWISS KRONO MDF boards are energy-conserving products, because they store more energy than it takes to produce them. In addition, these engineered wood products have been classified as having a negative “Global Warming Potential” (GWP).
