Building Industry

Compakboards have found applications within the Building Industry and Construction Industry. The favored panel size most widely used is 2,44m x 1,22m (8′ x 4′). This size is chosen due to physical manhandling constraints. The high strength for lighter weight of the Compakboards further eases panel handling on the construction site. Compakboards are a Moisture Resistant panel material and can be used in the most strenuous humid domestic interior conditions where dimensional stability and retained strength are of great importance. Some examples of application would be:

  • kitchen & bathroom furniture;
  • skirting boards;
  • mouldings;
  • wall cladding;
  • shelving and flooring.

Current manufacturers in North America have had Compakboards accredited by TECO as fully compliant with the industry. Compakboards are manufactured using MDI polyurethane as a binding agent, which produces a “Zero Formaldehyde” or “Formaldehyde Free” material.  Compakboards are therefore suitable for specification in environmentally sensitive areas or any domestic application where the end user has concern for their living environment, such as:

  • Schools;
  • Nurseries;
  • Hospitals;
  • Public buildings;
  • Laboratories;
  • Museums and nursing homes.
