Valchromat is an innovative product developed by Investwood. It combines the natural features of wood with the best of engineering, resulting in a material with beautiful textures and durability.
Valchromat is not MDF, it is an evolution of MDF.
The added value of Valchromat comes not only from colour but also from its distinctive composition and manufacturing process. It is a wood fibre panel coloured throughout, where fibres are coloured individually, impregnated with organic dyes and bonded together by a special resin which gives Valchromat unique physic and mechanical features.
On the surface of the panels small wood fibres are visible, fibres which did not absorb the organic dyes. This peculiarity gives Valchromat its unique and natural look. Because wood, it’s main raw material, has natural variations in tonality, Valchromat can also show variations in a similar way. Valchromat uses woodchips from the sawmill industry, contributing to the sustainable utilization of this natural resource.
