Kronospan is a leading wood products business
We manufacture high quality wood-based panel products including

Our portfolio includes associated value added products such as melamine faced panels, worktops, wall panels, lacquered HDF and laminate flooring.
Kronospan supplies its products to the furniture industry, merchant trade, refurbishment and DIY sectors.
Particleboard (sometimes known as chipboard) is a multi-purpose material and one of the most widely-used wood-based panels. Particleboard is an engineered wood-based product manufactured from wood chip particles and a synthetic binding resin. We form the board in a press using heat and pressure.
The main customers for particleboard are the furniture manufacturing and refurbishment sectors. Ideal for internal components, the product can also be coated with a decorative surface for applications such as kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and office furniture and shelving.
Medium density fibreboard & high density fibreboard (MDF; HDF)
Smooth, resistant, consistent, environmentally friendly
Medium density fibreboard (MDF) is a versatile wood-based panel with good machinability. MDF has a consistent structure and density and a very smooth surface. This makes it suitable for routed, lacquered and painted finishes.
The MDF production process involves grinding wood chips into fibres and binding them with synthetic resin under heat and pressure. MDF is used mainly for the furniture industry, skirting boards, architraves, packaging material, in the door industry and in everything from book covers to shoes.
High density fibreboard (HDF) contains more wood fibre per cubic metre than MDF board. HDF is used mainly as the core material for laminate flooring.
Engineered to perform
Oriented Strand Board (OSB) is an engineered wood-based panel, made of wood strands with a cross orientation, bound with a synthetic resin under high temperature and pressure.
The long and thin wood strands are “oriented” in crossed layers, guaranteeing a perfect stability and very high mechanical characteristics.
The use of fresh softwoods and the careful drying process brings quality and aesthetics to the product.
A designers dream
Melamine-faced panels [MF-PB or MF-MDF] are created by high pressure heat bonding impregnated paper to particleboard or MDF to provide a highly wear and water resistant product surface finish.
The product is used for a wide range of applications, including kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and office furniture, in a variety of fashionable designs and textures.
Matching laminates and edge bands are offered to customers to complement the range and enhance the finished product.
Lacquered panels (LHDF)
Clean and resistant
Lacquered HDF consists of raw HDF covered with water-diluted and UV resistant lacquers. Its most common application is for interior panels of furniture.
Lacquered HDF is also commonly used for drawer bases, interior door production, billboards, as well as in other interior design applications as a novel material.
Lacquered HDF is easy to clean and is resistant to chemical substances and mechanical impact; it is environmentally friendly and available in a variety of decors and formats.

Solid wood panels
Natural and strong
Solid Wood Panels are single-layer panels made of best natural wood. Because the finished panels are strong and keep their shape well, they are ideal for high quality furniture and interior decoration such as staircases and window sills.
The panels are made mainly from beech and oak. Lamellas made from these tree species are glued together along their whole width and length, forming large blocks. Prior to manufacturing, the lamellas are dried to the same humidity as the finished product. The result is a product that looks great and performs better than solid wood.
Betonyp building boards
Tough for 30 years
Healthy, debarked pine-wood and cement: These raw materials are used to produce one of our most successful products for more than three decades. Our cement-bonded particleboard, named BETONYP, is used where lightweight construction and facing elements require toughness and durability.
BETONYP building boards are used as facing elements, such as exterior facade cladding, false ceilings and interior space dividers, as auxiliary panel elements for lightweight and traditional construction systems and for shuttering elements.
