Valchromat® Engineered Colored Wood
Valchromat is an innovative product that combines the natural features of wood to the brightness of colours and, because of its unique flexibility, allows exploring the third dimension, the beauty of textures and the best of engineering.
Valchromat is not MDF. It is an evolution of the MDF.
The added value of Valchromat comes not only from colour but also from its distinctive composition and manufacturing process. It is a wood fibre panel coloured throughout, where fibres are colored individually, impregnated with organic dyes and bonded together by a special resin which gives Valchromat unique physic and mechanical features.
It is an evolution of MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) and is clearly superior to colored MDF.
• It is moisture resistant
• It has greater internal cohesion and, therefore, higher mechanical strength
• It allows working in three dimensions - mechanization
• It has greater resistance to bending
• It requires less effort of finish
• It ensures a lower abrasion of tools
Characteristics of Our Engineered Wood
Valchromat is produced in Portugal and Valbopan, SA is the only plant in the world producing a product with its characteristics.
On the surface small wood fibres are visible, fibres which did not absorb the organic dyes. This peculiarity gives Valchromat its unique and natural look. Because wood, it's main raw material, has natural variations in tonality, Valchromat can also show variations in color.
Valchromat can be used in several applications. It accepts different types of finishing. From matte, bright, varnished, waxed or oiled, to textured fire-resistant finishing. For technical advice, we recommend direct contact with our partners.
Valchromat is produced in different colors, sizes and thicknesses. Valchromat Fire Retardant is also available. According to ignitability test and EN 13501, it is classified as B-s2, d0.
The panel is provided without any finish.
