What is Palm Core?

Palm Core is plantation timber harvested from oil palm trunks in Malaysia. Treatment and kiln drying are required for the production of Palm Core. The trunks are obtained from oil palms when they fall for replanting. This takes place at the end of the life cycle when they are 25-30 years, when production of fruits stops and is no longer economical and replanting is necessary. Palm Core is a by-product of the palm oil industry; a new material that can substitute timber. As such, the use of Palm Core supports the conservation of forests in Malaysia and the rest of the world as well.

Door Blank & Lightboard
Eco-friendly and Lightness Matters!

Door Blank

Using light weight Palm Core, PalmTec Door Blank is born in the current trend towards higher mobility and modern design that demands the use of thicker material to convey contemporary design and high quality solid door. Lower weight, optimised stability for design and eco-friendly are requirements which a modern door must fulfil.

Lamination Board

Using the high density solid Palm Wood from 450kg/m3 and above, the board is perfect for exotic furniture and interior design materials. Architects and designers have been using the natural “Tiger Grain” of Palm Wood to create unique collections like tropical feel furniture and resorts furniture.

Bison Board

MOISTURE RESISTANT (MR) AND WATER RESISTANT (WR) BISON BOARD

The MR and WR Bison Board are produced with the advanced technology of Mende Germany from rapidly grown renewable resource of crop plantation. With a thickness swelling of less than 15% under the stringent 24 hours soaking test, these boards are highly recommended for application in areas of high humidity or areas where occasional wetting may occurs.

The Bison Board is designed for interior applications ranging from: Kitchen cupboards, bathroom vanities, laundry cupboards, Shelving or any situation where a moisture resistant board is required.

Range

Lightboard

The latest material made from light weight Palm Core, and moisture resistance (MR) or water resistance (WR) Bison Board as surface layers, this board is perfect combination of thicker and thinner designer elements in furniture making and interior finishing. PalmTec Lightboard uses light weight palm Core with density of 250–350kg/m3 after kiln drying.

Extreme Lightboard

The board is solid as a rock and robust under heavy mechanical stresses. Constructed in 3 layers structure with the core of transverse and longitudinal strips, it yields unbeatable sturdiness and stability.

All 3 types of PalmTec Lightboard, PalmTec Extreme-Lightboard and PalmTec Sandwich Lightboard can be easily drilled, sawn and dowelled using conventional joiner’s tools and put together using traditional joining techniques. Its multifunctional Bison Board facing is also suitable for painting, paper lamination,veneering or high pressure laminate. It is also a perfect moisture and water resistant base material for high quality veneer or pain coating finishes for the production of exclusive furniture, shop fit-outs, Kitchen, living areas, bedroom, interior decoration, office furnishings, interior wall claddings, theatre and scenery construction.

PalmTec Lightboard uses light weight palm Core with density of 250–350kg/m3 after kiln drying.

Extreme Lightboard

Using extreme light weight solid Palm Core with density around 150kg/m3, this board is ideal for large yet lightweight sliding doors, for example large Kitchen doors, room dividers and thick table tops. The Palm Core is sandwiched between the moisture resistant (MR) or water resistant (WR) Bison Board to produce a board with excellent dimensional stability and high rigidity properties.

Sandwich Lightboard

The board is solid as a rock and robust under heavy mechanical stresses. Constructed in 3 layers structure with the core of transverse and longitudinal strips, it yields unbeatable sturdiness and stability.
