Door And Window
Fiberesin Fusion is a product designed to enhance the appearance, paintability, durability and water deflection properties of a door, window (or similar) surface. Our Fiberesin Fusion overlay allows door and window makers to use lesser grade of woods and different construction methods, while providing a very paintable surface. Besides greatly reducing cost of quality, adding our single-ply phenolic fusion material provides dramatic cost savings by reducing paint line time as much as 30%. Fusion also works well with PILT treatment (PPG) systems.
For veneer applications, Fusion provides excellent dimensional stability, superior adhesion and durability and can be buried between the veneer and the core material.
Fiberesin Fusion is manufactured by impregnating special Kraft paper with a formulated phenolic resin using a proprietary system. The product is partially cured when treated. When bonded to the wood surface, the product can be stained, sanded or painted.
Fiberesin Fusion does not emit any detectable volatile compounds.
Fiberesin High Performance Panels (HPP)
Fiberesin HPP panels are offered in a variety of solid colors, woodgrains and patterns. Due to Fiberesin’s unique production process, Fiberesin HPP is produced without glue lines and thus will not delaminate.
Fiberesin HPP panels meet or exceeds all of the applicable NEMA specifications for VGS grade high pressure laminate. In fact, HPP provides additional performance advantages over most high pressure laminated surfaces. Fiberesin HPP has passed SEFA testing requirements for chemical resistance and can be used in laboratory, medical, or education environments where such surface properties are important.
VGS grade high pressure laminate glued to industrial grade particleboard is now the accepted industry standard for horizontal surfaces where impact resistance is a critical feature. Low pressure laminates, which are manufactured by thermally fusing a single decorative sheet to particleboard, give the same aesthetic appearance but not the necessary impact or abrasion resistance.
Fiberesin's HPP provides the best of both worlds. HPP is a multi-layer material thermally fused to industrial grade particleboard or fiberboard core. The surface is actually “manufactured” right on the board. Because it is thermally fused, the surface is permanently attached to the board. There are no glue lines to delaminate. There is never any "lifting" around the edges with Fiberesin's HPP panels.
From a performance standpoint, Fiberesin HPP is not your typical HPL. HPP meets a more attractive price point than HPL, plus Fiberesin's commitment to high quality and outstanding service make Fiberesin the vendor of choice for many highly demanding, world class companies.
Fiberesin Vapor Barrier Laminate is a proprietary phenolic laminate engineered for door and window applications.
Moisture wants to migrate through wood. Whether your doors require moisture infiltration protection from the outside-in or in both directions, Fiberesin manufactures a variety of door laminate grades and thicknesses for excellent weatherability and vapor barrier performance. Fiberesin can custom-engineer door laminate to meet your specific vapor transmission rate needs. Significant cost of quality and warranty reduction savings can result.
Fiberesin Vapor Barrier Laminate has the following key features:
- Effectively manage and control moisture transfer. We can engineer the product to your optimal performance.
- Increases product strength and durability. Excellent tensile strength.
- Provides for excellent paintability and a smooth surface which is resistant to denting, weather, and scratching.
- Lowers door and window production costs by allowing the uses of lesser grades of wood and finger jointed material while offering an excellent top layer finish.
- Minimizes handling damage and dents in your production process.
- Vapor Barrier is available in a variety of thicknesses and can be sanded on one or both sides.
- The finished product does not emit any detectable volatile compounds.
