Specialty Applications

Natural Timber Veneer

The process for Natural Timber Veneers (NTV) is to take a thin layer of veneer which is sliced from a log. Individual veneers are assembled into the required sheet size (typically 2400 x 1200) and then bonded to a variety of panel options. Veneered panels are available on MDF, Particleboard and Plywood on a variety of thickness options. Veneered panels can be supplied with the same quality on both sides of the sheet (G2S) or with one main face and a downgrade veneer on the back of the sheet (DGB)

Natural Timber Veneers are also available from Gen-Eco on our Balsa core material to produce our Ecolite range for ceiling beams and vertical fins.

Our range is selected from the following:

  • Natural Australian Hardwood Species
  • Rustic Veneers
  • Reconstituted Veneers

Fire Retardant MDF

This fibre board is manufactured with flame retardant additives, specially conceived for those applications where an improvement in behaviour under fire conditions is an added safety factor. Fire Retardant MDF is available in natural and red colour variations. Classification Group 2 AS/NZS 3837-1998 EO.

Applications:

  • Suitable for use in non-sprinkled areas of buildings that require fire retardant panels
  • Can be digitally printed or painted for wall and ceiling panels
  • Suitable for joinery and shopfitting

Exterior MDF

Exterior MDF is a fibre board made from carefully selected fibres, bound with formaldehyde free E0 PMDI glues under pressure and high temperature.
Gen-Eco Exterior MDF is ideal for exterior use when installed 100mm above the ground. The faces and edges need to be coated with an exterior paint, preferably a 2-pack system. It can also be used for interiors which separate environments, such as laundries and bathrooms. Gen-Eco Exterior MDF can be supplied either raw or with a white two-sides melamine finish.

Applications:

  • Outdoor kitchens cabinetry
  • Outdoor furniture
  • Exterior wall and ceiling linings
  • Exterior doors
  • Flooring
  • Skirting

Black MDF

Where fire ratings and moisture repellence are not required, black MDF can fill the void for a coloured core product. Used as internals for cupboards, veneered for ceiling panels or panelling systems there is a myriad of uses in many design applications for coloured MDF.

Applications:

  • Cabinetry and Shopfitting
  • As the core for perforated and slotted panels
  • Can be overlaid with timber veneer, digitally printed and painted

Foamboard

Foamboard is an ideal substrate material for semi-exposed areas where moisture ingress may occur. Applications include carcass material for kitchens on decks, table tops and general areas where occasional wetting is likely to occur.

Foamboard can be processed exactly the same as timber based panels such as MDF and Plywood - this includes cutting, drilling and screwing.

Available in both white and black solid core.

Applications:

  • Carcass substrate for semi-exposed kitchens
  • As core material for digital printing such as table tops and wall panels
