Wellboard: The "Wooden Composite in Waves"
Love that corrugated cardboard look? Wellboard is 100% cellulose with no added adhesives or binders. the different profiles are pressed into the flat base plate using heat and pressure. It is strong enough to work like wood.
Wellboard can be handled like wood and can be sawn, drilled, sanded and glued. the surface can be given various colours using varnishes and glazes.
Wellboard's corrugated surface and flexibility make it an excellent material for exhibition, shop and furniture construction. regardless of whether it's used for the counter or the back wall of the booth, a roll-front cupboard or a screen - wellboard gives the objects an unmistakable face."
