SMARTPLY and MEDITE are Innovative at EXPO

  • 13.10.2014

Timber Expo 2014

Coillte Panel Products exhibited at Timber Expo 2014 at the NEC Birmingham, on the 7th and 8th October 2014, showcasing its MEDITE MDF and SMARTPLY OSB products, which are synonymous with quality and innovation.

The award-winning eco sustainable stand was yet again a success, the impressive MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME water feature generated a lot of interest, with its demonstration of how well the material can withstand moisture.

The extensive range of FSC certified panel products at the event demonstrated their suitability for an array of uses and how they provide solutions to many building envelope issues. The range includes SMARTPLY FRBuild, which is a flame retardant OSB3 panel, which was developed in response to the Structural Timber Association’s design guide to separating distances during construction for timber frame buildings.

The exceptional qualities of MEDITE Premier were evident. Produced using superior wood refining technology and specially design resins, the quality of the resulting surface make it suitable for the thinnest laminates and surface coatings. End-users enjoy consistency of quality and thickness as well as reduced tool wear when processing.

Timber technology offers an innovative alternative for buildings, such as timber frame constructions for a strong, durable and sustainable low carbon building. MEDITE Vent is particularly suitable for use in “diffusion open” building systems, with its high racking strength and excellent vapour permeability.

In addition, Mike Harrison, Marketing Manager, presented a seminar to delegates at the exhibition on OSB innovation and how the scope of applications can be widened through both product development and usage.
