Particle Board

MelaWood (Melamine Faced Boards)
 
PG Bison's Melawood is the leading brand in decorative MFB. Using either BisonBord or SupaWood as a substrate, a single sheet of melamine-impregnated, decor paper is bonded to both the board's surfaces under heat and pressure. This provides a durable, scratch and moisture resistant surface. (The board's exposed edges still need treatment to protect them against moisture ingress.) MelaWood is suitable for medium duty vertical applications, such as door and drawer frontals, carcassing, furniture components and shelving, as well as wall cladding and interior building elements. MelaWood is the ideal choice for kitchen, built-in-cupboard and case-goods applications. MelaWood is available in three surface finishes, Peen (a textured, stippled finish), Executive (a smooth, matt finish) and Ashwood (an embossed, wood grain finish).
 




 
BisonPly (Veneered Boards)
 
BisonPly and SupaPly use BisonBord and SupaWood respectively as a substrate, surfaced with a genuine timber veneer. BisonPly and SupaPly are ideal for flat surface wood finishes that can be combined with matching solid timbers moulded to shape. They offer an affordable solution to using solid timber. They are primarily used in upmarket applications such as solid timber kitchens, office and boardroom furniture as well as paneling or wall cladding.
 




 
BisonDécor (Finished Foil Boards)
 
BisonDcor and SupaDécor use BisonBord and SupaWood respectively as a substrate, surfaced with a pre-finished printed, wood-grain, decorative, resin-coated paper foil. BisonDécor and SupaDécor are suitable for light duty horizontal and vertical applications. They offer an affordable, pre-finished, decorative, paper surface commonly used in affordable furniture, low traffic shelving and carcassing as well as caskets.
 




 
BisonLam Shelving
 
Combining BisonLam Super White on a substrate of BisonBord and then cut and edged into a variety of shelving sizes, BisonLam Shelving provides an excellent product for kitchen and built-in cupboard applications. Edged either on one or both of the long edges, BisonLam Shelving's melamine faced surface is suitable for medium duty vertical and light duty horizontal applications.
 




 
BisonEdge
 
Using a substrate of BisonBord with either a Sapele or White edging strip on one of the long edges only, BisonEdge is the perfect choice for built-in cupboard applications. BisonEdge comes in a range of convenient lengths and widths, offering a cost effective, versatile shelving solution.
 




 
Bison SupaLam
 
SupaLam, the premium brand name in white melamine faced MDF, is offered in double face as well as single face (where one face is upgraded while the other remains raw or exposed) allowing for the upgrader to router patterns before applying a PVC or acrylic wrap for decorative door frontals. SupaLam is recommended when decorative medium-duty vertical applications are requested. It is purpose-made for surface or edge profiled kitchen and bathroom unit doors and carcass material. SupaLam is available in three surface finishes, Peen (a textured, stippled finish), Executive (a smooth, matt finish) and Ashwood (an embossed, wood grain finish).
 




 
BisonLam Super White
 
The leading brand name in white melamine faced particleboards (MFB), BisonLam, uses either BisonBord or BisonBord V313 as a substrate. A single sheet of melamine-impregnated, white decor-paper is bonded to both the board's surfaces under heat and pressure. This provides a durable, scratch and moisture resistant surface. (The board's exposed edges still need treatment to protect them against moisture ingress.) BisonLam is the ideal choice for kitchen, built-in-cupboard and carcassing applications. BisonLam is suitable for medium duty vertical and light horizontal applications, such as door frontals, drawers, carcassing and shelving. BisonLam is available in three surface finishes, Peen (a textured, stippled finish), Executive (a smooth, matt finish) and Ashwood (an embossed, wood grain finish)
 




 
BisonBord V313
 
BisonBord V313, although similar in construction to BisonBord, has additional additives to help improve moisture resistance and therefore provide a lower swelling rate than that of BisonBord. BisonBord V313 can be upgraded just like BisonBord and is designed for use in high moisture areas in interior applications only, such as bathroom vanities, laundry cupboards and kitchen kick plates. It is also ideally suited for use in coastal regions with high humidity. BisonBord V313 is not waterproof but is water resistant.
 




 
BisonBord Thin
 
Sometimes an application requires a product of a high quality, but perhaps of less weight or thickness, performing less of a structural role and more of an aesthetic role. BisonBord Thin provides that solution as a superior quality raw panel in both 8mm and 9mm thicknesses. Excellent for upgrading, BisonBord Thin provides a cost effective means to cladding and paneling, especially in decorative settings like shopfitting.
 




 
BisonBord Medium Density Particleboard (MDP)
 
BisonBord MDP, a revolution in the production of particleboard, creates new opportunities for the tried and trusted BisonBord stable of brands. By increasing the ratio of surface to core material during the manufacturing process, a panel is created that gives the flexibility of being able to perform shallow routing, allowing BisonBord MDP to venture into applications previously difficult to execute on ordinary particleboard.
 




 
BisonBord
 
BisonBord, the premium quality, interior grade particleboard, is manufactured by grinding wood chips into coarse and fine wood particles which are then coated in synthetic resin and formed into panels under high heat and pressure. BisonBord offers excellent structural strength with superior screw-holding abilities and machinability, making it the core material of choice. Used either in its raw state or as a substrate (base) for decorative surfaces, it is used extensively in shopfitting, kitchen manufacturing and the domestic and office furniture industries, amongst others. BisonBord provides a surface that is ideal for priming, painting, printing, veneering (BisonPly) and laminating with melamine impregnated paper (MelaWood), Formica (Board 13), paper foils (BisonDecor) or Deccon.
 




 
Bison SupaPly (Veneered Boards)
 
BisonPly and SupaPly use BisonBord and SupaWood respectively as a substrate, surfaced with a genuine timber veneer. BisonPly and SupaPly are ideal for flat surface wood finishes that can be combined with matching solid timbers moulded to shape. They offer an affordable solution to using solid timber. They are primarily used in upmarket applications such as solid timber kitchens, office and boardroom furniture as well as paneling or wall cladding.
 




 
Bison SupaDécor (Finished Foil Boards)
 
BisonDcor and SupaDécor use BisonBord and SupaWood respectively as a substrate, surfaced with a pre-finished printed, wood-grain, decorative, resin-coated paper foil.

They offer an affordable, pre-finished, decorative, paper surface commonly used in affordable furniture, low traffic shelving and carcassing as well as caskets.
