A new generation of lightweight composite panels

A new generation of lightweight composite panels

Canadian manufacturer, Corruven, recently launched a new patented technology of a corrugated wooden core for the manufacture of lightweight panels, marketed by numerous industrial partners. The technology combines the natural strength of wood, the corrugated form and green chemistry to make a smarter use of the resource.

In addition to being light and making use of raw material, panels made with Corruven® Core show mechanical properties comparable, or even superior, to those of traditional wood-based panels. This should contribute to the innovation potential and the adoption of lightweight panels in the industry. 

Corruven® Core can be used directly in packaging and in furniture or be covered by different surface materials s such as MDF for furniture manufacturing and construction materials.
