Valchromat is a unique wood fibre panel which is coloured throughout and engineered for high physical performance. The fibres are individually impregnated with non toxic, organic dyes and chemically bonded by specifically developed resins that give the panels their special properties. Manufactured in a range of beautiful colours, different sheet dimensions and several thicknesses make it fantastically versatile. It accepts a multitude of different types of finish, such as varnish, oil, wax or lacquer.
Being coloured throughout the board means no matter how you cut or machine it, the colour remains consistent. This has great advantages over melamine faced products that require edging once cut. The other advantage over faced or edged boards is if Valchromat is scratched or scuffed it can simply be sanded out and re-finished. Joints can be sanded flush with no worrying about damaging the surface.
The natural wood fibres used in production are visible on the surface giving a natural appearance.
Valchromat is moisture resistant making it suitable for bathrooms and other areas where humidity levels are high.
This black colour variant is ideal for a modern, contemporary look with blacks and greys being a favourite choice in modern colour schemes. See the picture of the board with a clear lacquer applied for an idea of the final finish achievable.
Valchromat conforms to EN622-5 Moisture Resistant EN319 & EN317 and is fully FSC certified.
