INDOWUD – Environment-friendly alternative to plywood launched in India
The Chennai-based Milam Sales Enterprises Pvt. Ltd., a leading trader of carpentry materials, and INDOWUD Polymers Pvt. Ltd., an innovative panel products manufacturer, have recently launched INDOWUD, a Natural Fibre Composite (NFC) board.
INDOWUD looks, feels, and performs like natural timber or plywood but it is not made of wood. The raw materials of this innovative product are natural fibres, agro residuals, non-toxic thermos and virgin polymers. INDOWUD is also 100% recyclable, making it an environment-friendly alternative to timber and plywood – or particle boards, medium density or high-density fibreboards. INDOWUD is also functionally superior because it is easy to drill, screw, cut, saw, and rout with conventional carpentry tools. Further, it is easy to varnish, glue, paint, and polish. INDOWUD does not leave cracking, swelling, warpage or splintering. It is resistant to fire, water, corrosion, decay, moulding, fungal attack, and rotting. It shields UV radiation.
Talking about INDOWUD, Mr. B L Bengani, Chairman, INDOWUD Polymers Pvt. Ltd. said, “The key highlight of INDOWUD is its strength. INDOWUD NFC comes with superior density – up to 850 kg per Cubic Metre (cbm), whereas the density of plywood is less than 750 kg/cbm. And the density of PVC and HDF are up to 500 and 700 kg/cbm respectively.
INDOWUD NFC has high nail and screw holding strength – this is an irresistible feature in exterior and interior furnishing and joinery works that find applications in the terrace, garden, balcony, bathroom, kitchen, pool and seaside furniture, cabinets, wardrobes, partitions, fencing, signage and many more.”
