This versatile wooden sheeting is stable, flexible and shapeable like a metal sheet. Kraftplex consists of 100% cellulose, but combines the characteristics of metal, composite materials and plastics. It is stable, flexible and durably shapeable like metal sheets. The high-quality fibres come from sustainably cultivated stocks of softwood.
The production process of Kraftplex is unique and uses nothing but water, pressure and heat; no chemical additives, bleaches or binding agents are needed. The material is thus manufactured in a very environmentally sound way and is completely biodegradable. The characteristic of being electrically isolating makes Kraftplex to a good alternative to conventional plastic sheets. The material is so flexible that 3D-shaping through deep drawing and shipping the edge are possible. It can be cut (with laser and water-jet), drilled, perforated and adhered. The material can be used with paints, varnishes, oils, waxes and adhesives, can be covered with decor film and can be printed. Kraftplex is available as Kraftplex Fo in the thicknesses 0.8 mm and 1.5 mm. The sheet size are 104 x 112.5 cm and 60 x 40 cm. Delivery packaging units can be customised from 5 sheets/pack or 10 sheets/pack.
