Superpan - the advanced substrate from Finsa
Multi-national board specialist Finsa is known for developing advanced products through exclusive manufacturing techniques and market-led innovation.
Superpan is one such product, especially developed for the MFC products market and now seen as the optimum substrate for the latest high gloss finishes and photo-realistic patterns and grains.
Finsa UK's Rafael Willisch explains that while Superpan is actually a chipboard central core sandwiched between two face layers of MDF, Finsa's exclusive manufacturing process has achieved this with no extra cost to the user. Whereas some door manufacturers, for example, have resorted to a solid MDF substrate, Superpan offers exactly the same qualities at the cost of chipboard. Rafael says that with the current divergence in price between chipboard and the sharply ascending cost of MDF Superpan, has found a natural position in the market.
The MDF faces of Superpan eliminate any irregularities or pitting associated with raw chipboard and this translates into perfect laminating for the final décor - for high gloss finishes it eliminates the risk of the dreaded 'orange peel blemish.
Superpan also offers other important advantages - mainly a far superior cut with a chip-free edge and a greater residual rigidity which prevents the bending or sagging associated with chipboard.
Finsa also offers Superpan with a full range of uni-colour or woodgrained melamine faces as well as in moisture-resistant P4 and structural P6 worktop grades.
Finsa holds extensive stocks of Superpan at its headquarters on Merseyside and distribute the product nationwide in minimum order quantities.
