NOVO CONSTRUCTION

Product profile

Novo construction panel is made of 100% natural wheat straw fibres and formaldehyde-free adhesives. Construction panels are load bearing and suitable for home and commercial use. Construction panels provide a green and sustainable development solution for lightweight buildings. In addition to construction, interior decoration and furniture applications, Novo Construction panels can also be used for specialty load bearing applications like boards for computer flooring or multi-layer high racks.

Product features

  • High structural strength stability
  • Load-bearing with excellent strength and weight performance
  • Superior workability: does not break when cut, easy trimming and exceptional bending properties
  • Excellent nail-holding capacity on all sides 
  • High earthquake resistance and durability
  • Better water resistance than traditional wood-based board
  • Vermin prevention
  • Zero chemical emissions

Formaldehyde is classified as a carcinogen by the World Health Organization (WHO) and ranks second on the List of Toxic Chemicals under Priority Control in China. Most indoor formaldehyde comes from man-made panel boards. Many countries have placed formaldehyde off-gassing restriction on man-made panel boards. The F★★★★ Standard from Japan has the strictest regulations*. NOVOFIBRE has received formaldehyde-free certification through Japan’s F★★★★ certification program for its products.

*In accordance with F★★★★ standards, the tested formaldehyde content should not be higher than 0.3mg/L (0.5mg/L under E0 Standards).
