MOSO Bamboo Tiger Panel
- story by Moso International
The latest innovation in the MOSO bamboo panel assortment in the High Density style is the tiger look, consisting of a mix of compressed natural and caramel strips. This new panel, available in 4 mm and 20 mm thickness, provides a totally new look in bamboo in various colour variations: chocolate/natural (resembling Zebrano wood), chocolate/caramel, caramel/natural.
MOSO Bamboo Tiger Panel is made by compressing strips from the sustainable resource bamboo. MOSO Bamboo panelling combines the virtues of the best hardwoods (hardness, looks) with the immense growing capacity of the highly renewable giant bamboo species MOSO.
The MOSO Bamboo Tiger Panel is especially interesting in those applications where the appealing look of the panel remains visible, such as staircases, furniture, table tops and kitchens.
Furthermore, on request MOSO Bamboo Solid Panels can be supplied with FSC-label and formaldehyde free adhesive (E0 norm).
Key characteristics of MOSO Bamboo Tiger Panel
Sustainable, ecological and highly renewable. The giant bamboo species MOSO grows to maturity within 5 years (compared to over 50 years for most hardwood species) and can therefore act as the green alternative for scarce tropical hardwood.
Hard, stable & durable. Hardness, density and dimensional stability similar or better than good quality hardwoods. The hardness of the high density version (9.5 kg/mm2 Brinell) is even superior to the hardest tropical hardwood species.
CO2 neutral over full life cycle. Official LCA studies (ISO 14040/44) by Delft University of Technology have confirmed that through the fast growth and use as bio-energy in end-of-life a large amount of CO2 is fixed or substituted, which more than compensates for the low amount of CO2 released during the efficient production and transportation.
Application of MOSO Bamboo Tiger Panel may contribute to a higher BREEAM and LEED score.
Density: +/- 1050 kg/m3
Resistance to indentation in Brinell hardness is ≥ 9.5 kg/mm2 (EN 1534)
Formaldehyde emission is Class E1 (< 0,124 mg/m3)
Glue: D3 water resistant
The material is available in various sizes, and is intended for interior decoration, such as walls and ceilings, furniture, kitchens, tabletops and cabinet making.
