Innovative surfaces for specific challenges

Adjusted to the various application areas of the final products our surface materials feature different technical properties depending on our customers’ needs. Customized resin compositions effect tailor-made product characteristics and designs. This way we supply a vast range or portfolio of recipes which we develop on demand.

Precisely developed products for individual needs


Plywood

With over 75 years experience within the plywood industry our highly qualified staff convert resins such as phenol, melamine and other organic compounds to create premium surface finishes within the automotive, transport, construction, furniture and marine industries.

Depending on the application of the film faced plywood, our products meet the stringent mechanical, chemical, heat and humidity properties demanded.

Our specially designed product properties and our high quality, characterize the innovations driving our surface developments in the various markets into which we are present.

OSB

North America homebuyers have always had a strong preference for wood-framed and wood-sheathed housing. Oriented strandboard (OSB), introduced in 1978, has steadily taken marketshare from Douglas fir and southern pine plywood in these structural wood panel sheathing applications. More recently, North American OSB producers have begun integrating overlays into their production processes. By doing so they are able to produce more valuable OSB-based specialty products.  Examples include embossed OSB siding and OSB sheathing panels that are overlaid with vapor barriers. surfactor and its sister company, Lahnpaper, have unique technical and production capabilities to assist OSB producers in their quest to efficiently produce innovative, specialty OSB products.

Fiberboard

The direct postforming process on your particle or MDF board could be arranged by our modified synthetic resin films. By adding a baseTEG underlay you will get an optimal surface appearance with high crack resistance and a brilliant release behavior. Our primer films are provided with a glue line on the reverse side and a decorative side with an open surface for paint/lacquering application.

Wooden composites

surfactor offers solutions for bonding/gluing veneers with each other or in combination with other substrates for value adding to the surface (e.g. composites such as HPL/CPL/aluminum/metals/textiles/leather/horn…). We impregnate suitable carriers with our in-house developed and produced resin systems. Under pressure and temperature, a duroplastic glue line is applied. These fulfills the highest requirements against water and chemical resistance.

Veneers

You want to have long-lasting and durable glue line or a transparent coverage? Wherever high quality veneers are joined in a dry bonding process and glued together, or value adding is executed and the highest precision and reliability are required, you can use surfactor glue films or overlays.

Where form stability, water resistance and durability is requested, surfactor glue films offer significant advantages versus common water-based liquid gluing systems. surfactor overlays (“lacquer from roll”) for veneers have similar transparent surfaces in comparison to liquid lacquers.
