AirMaxx / lightweight panel

AirMaxx

M TECHNOLOGY AWARD 2009

AirMaxx

M TECHNOLOGY AWARD 2009

The light woodpanel AirMaxx® is composed of wood chips, an expanded polymer and it weighs 30% less than the standard chipboard commonly used today. The decisive advantage is that both production and processing of the new material take place in existing plants. It simplifies many of the steps along the path from raw material to the assembly of furniture by the consumer. Logistics costs are lower and the number of complaints and claims are also reduced. Furthermore, the new material creates savings in packaging materials and the energy required for transport. AirMaxx® is also available in a reduced formaldehyde version and is recycable.
