LUDWIGSHAFEN, GERMANY/ SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA, SPAIN: BASF and Finsa, one of the most renowned producers of wood-based panels, will present their joint development project, a lightweight wood-based panel at the ZOW fair, Bad Salzuflen, Germany, between February 6 and 9, 2012. The new material that weighs up to 30 per cent less compared to conventional board combines Finsa’s well-known SUPERPAN technology with BASF’s innovative Kaurit Light technology. The market launch of the product branded SUPERPAN STAR is planned for 2012.

“What is truly remarkable about the renowned SUPERPAN technology, exclusive and patented by Finsa, is that it combines the benefits of both medium-density fibre board (MDF) and chipboard. The two outer layers of the board produced with the SUPERPAN technology are made of fibres, very similar to a conventional MDF panel. The middle layer is that of conventional chipboard. Thus, the SUPERPAN board offers both a higher resistance to bending than conventional chipboard and benefits during the further processing, from screwing to decorative coating,” explained Siro Gomez, Head of Marketing, Finsa.
