Product Range

BANOVA® PLUS – Lightweight and high performance

BANOVA® PLUS is the world’s lightest plywood with a core made of balsa from 100% FSC®-certified plantations (FSC-C019065). Its weight reduction of 50-70% in comparison to conventional wood panels is impressive, as is the high thermal insulation and lamination abilities. The panel is refined with a regionally available light hardwood, which provides thin but more resistant high end surfaces. The new product is easy to process and brings high value to the manufacturing chain as well as in the final application.

BANOVA® SUPERFLEX – Extremely flexible bendable plywood

BANOVA® SUPERFLEX is highly flexible bending plywood used for curved components. In conjunction with thin facings, small radius can be created with only one layer of BANOVA® SUPERFLEX, where traditional bending plywood would require two or more layers. Besides being lightweight and environmentally compatible, BANOVA® SUPERFLEX offers the possibility of using existing woodworking tools as well as established connecting and bonding techniques.
