The newly developed substitute for wood – Xboard™
Xboard™ is a secondary raw material which is obtained from presorted household waste and which has been treated with suitable additives. This has led to the development of fillers with the ability to replace wood chips in the wood processing industry. The composition of the household waste is adjusted to meet the requirements of the final product.
Xboard™ is made of:
- Household waste
- and/or commercial waste, in a suitable composition
Xboard™ was tested in the laboratory by replacing 10%, 20% and 50% of the wood in the manufacture of MDF, HDF and particle boards. Independent German research institutes have performed these tests and confirmed the results.
