Imprex® Core Stock

Imprex Core Stock is a resin-treated core material for high-pressure laminates used in various decorative and industrial applications. In its manufacture, Absorbex kraft paper is treated with thermosetting resins. Therefore, Imprex Core Stock is a converted form of Absorbex and is used in similar end uses to Absorbex.

Imprex Surface Films are phenolic resin treated products designed for overlaying of wood-based panels to be used mainly in concrete shuttering and in the transport and construction industries. Imprex Glue Film is developed for gluing the veneers together, for example, in furniture manufacture, and Imprex Painting Film is used as a painting base on wooden panels.

Imprex Novox is a non-phenolic, special thermosetting and flexible, weatherproof overlaying film that tolerates tough weather conditions well, especially UV light. Imprex Novox is used for wood-based floor and wall panels, for digitally printable panels and furniture surfaces.

As a responsible and dynamic company, we keep on renewing our business and products to become even more sustainable and ecological.  Our latest innovation is recyclable, repulpable and renewable paperboard for the packaging industry.

Beside GC qualities we will produce FSB including recyclable barrier board grades for the food packaging market, as well as cup stock for hot and cold drinks with recyclable barriers.

The new  board machine will have an annual capacity of 400,000 tons. The guiding principal for this project has been sustainability through innovation, with solutions for a wide market which fulfill the most stringent demands for consumers, brand-owners and packaging material converters.
