Strong & Sustainable

Farm Tough Fibreboard

Our scientists and engineers have crafted what we believe is the perfect formula of strength, sustainability and cost effectiveness using wheat straw grown on the Canadian prairies. We like to call our MDF “Farm Tough.”

Innovation + Familiarity

Wheat is a winner

 Our innovative medium density fibreboard matches the performance of wood-based MDF in:

  • Strength
  • Machinability
  • Paintability
  • Durability
  • Consistency

 It has the added benefits of:

  • Formaldehyde-free adhesive
  • Improved Moisture resistence
  • Annually renewable straw supply
  • Lower density (10% – 14% lighter)
  • Lower VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
  • New panel sizes and thickness (including 2.0mm & 2.5mm)
