• BASF’s Kaurit® Light technology forms the core of FINSA's Superpan® Star board;
• Added value for customers throughout the value-added chain;
• Award presented at W12 (Furniture Industry Suppliers Exhibition) in Birmingham, UK.

The Design in Manufacturing Award recognizes products that offer functional benefits throughout the value-added chain – in this case from the manufacturer and the processor to the end consumer. Superpan® Star scored in several respects, offering the advantages of BASF's Kaurit® Light technology – a lightweight middle layer made of wood chips, a polymer and a binder – combined for the first time with an MDF surface ( MDF= Medium Density Fiberboard). This gives the board excellent bending strength while making it 20 percent lighter than particle board.

The significant weight reduction saves transport costs. Additionally, the material also offers enormous advantages in terms of processing, whether it be screwdriving or decorative coating. Its edge machining suitability has been tested by a number of renowned machine manufacturers, including Homag. The material is also compatible with standard fittings and screws, as demonstrated by tests performed by manufacturers such as Häfele.

Before being added to the wood chips, Kaurit® Light is foamed in a so-called pre-foamer. The rest of the manufacturing process is identical to that of conventional Superpan® board. The usual machines and materials can still be used even during further processing. Superpan® Star board can also be recycled and processed for heat recovery just like conventional particle boards.

The lightweight board has numerous applications in traditional furniture manufacturing, countertops, interior fitting, trade fair design and fitting out commercial premises.
