Specialty Wood Panels
Paneltech manufactures both standard and custom wood panel Overlays™ and saturated media. Paneltech has a wide range of product platforms including both specialty papers and non-cellulose webs. This capability allows us to craft overlay concepts to match a particular product need and to accommodate differences in panel manufacturing processes.
Medium density Overlays™ (MDOs) are heavy kraft paper-based products that are first saturated and cured, then coated with phenolic glue resin for application directly to hardwood or softwood plywood in a hot press. Since the resin in the paper is fully cured, MDO can be pressed directly to a press platen without sticking. Paneltech's standard MDO products meet the requirements of PS 1-07.
High density Overlays™ (HDOs) are highly saturated papers that are self-bonding to the substrate without a glue coating. Because of their higher resin content, they produce a somewhat glossier surface texture compared with MDO resulting in an “architectural finish” on concrete surfaces. The higher resin gives the HDO superior barrier properties and increased resistance to abrasion and alkalinity.
