Collins Introduces MR50 Rated Moisture Resistant Particleboard

The Collins Companies today introduced the first particleboard to meet the rigorous ANSI MR50 standard. Collins Pine Particleboard MR50 and Collins Pine FreeForm® MR50 are durable and provide extreme moisture resistance for interior use.

Suited for use in kitchen, bath, hospitality and other environments with high humidity and incidental moisture contact, Collins’ new MR50 products are hard-wearing and guaranteed to be smooth, making them ideal for a wide range of laminating applications.

“Collins’ latest innovation allows us to provide a superior product that will stand up to environments with even the highest humidity,” said Mike Shuey sales manager of The Collins Companies. “This new MR50 rated panel makes it the perfect choice for interior designers and architects looking for compatible materials that can contribute toward LEED requirements.”

The latest development in Collins Pine Particleboard meets the highest moisture resistant specifications for ANSI A208.1-2009. MR50 is available in two product lines, both having no added formaldehyde (NAF): Collins Pine Particleboard and Collins Pine FreeForm Particleboard, which is FSC-Certified.

Both Collins Pine Particleboard MR50 and Pine FreeForm MR50 contain 100 percent post-industrial wood fiber, have excellent machinability therefore extending tool life and contain exceptionally high pine content. In addition, they are manufactured to reduce carbon emissions and eliminate human exposure to hazardous chemicals.

The Collins Companies will be featuring the new MR50 products along with their other forest product offerings at Association of Woodworking & Furnishings Suppliers (AWFS®) Fair in Las Vegas, Nevada, July 24-27 at booth 6311.
