The Kerfkore Co., a manufacturer of bendable substrates and lightweight panels, says its Foamkore-Green has received product certification from the Forest Stewardship Council.
Foamkore-Green is a no-added formaldehyde product that provides a lightweight panel with structural integrity at a greatly reduced weight, according to the company. It consists of a Eucalyptus fiber hardboard face with a polystyrene foam core. The product is made from recovered and recycled materials and can help qualify for LEED credit points for MR 4.1, MR 4.2, and EQ 4.4.
Foamkore-Green provides more than 60 percent weight reduction when compared to particleboard and MDF in 3/4" thickness. It can be attached with conventional methods of attachment, such as glue and other fasteners and a variety of edging options can be applied, including hot-melt edgebanding.
Panels are available in nominal sizes of 4' x 8' and 4' x 10'. Panel thickness can range from 3/4" up to 3". Custom sizes and face options are available upon request.
