Flakeboard is an industry leader in the production of quality composite wood panels. Incorporated in 1960, Flakeboard Company Limited has grown from a pilot plant, designed to showcase panel manufacturing equipment, to a multi-site, world-scale producer of composite wood products. Using lumber industry by-products and under-utilized wood species once landfilled or burned as waste by forestry operators or sawmills, Flakeboard manufactures a variety of particleboard, medium density fibreboard (MDF) and FIBREX® thin high density MDF.


MDF: Premier, Superior, eLite, Terra®, VESTA

Medium density fiber board (MDF) is a non-structural, interior product and one of the most rapidly growing composite board products to enter the world market in recent years. Although MDF uses much of the same types of recovered and recycled wood waste as Particleboard, it is refined differently using a high energy refiner that acts like in a steam pressurized “digester” allowing the raw material to become softened and to actually change physically and chemically. MDF is an excellent substrate that is very smooth, stable, and flat and offers superior design flexibility.

Fibrex: Fibrex, Fibrex Plus, Pegboard, Cut-to-Size

Flakeboard manufactures FIBREX® high density thin MDF on two 5-foot continuous presses. This continuous technology enables us to provide customers with a flexible range of lengths and widths to suit any application. Additionally, Flakeboard can provide value-added upgrades such as thermally-fused melamine, decorative papers, paint, direct print and pegboard. Combine these choices with our versatile cut-to-size capabilities and your options to maximize efficiencies become virtually unlimited.

Particleboard: Vesta, Duraflake, UltraPine, Mendex, Terra

Particleboard is non-structural, interior product made from wood particles that are often the byproducts from the manufacture of the other wood products such as lumber or paper. The particles are mixed with resins and formed under heat and pressure into a strong, solid board. The board typically consists of several particle layers - a core and two outside layers, or faces. These particles are mixed with resins and formed under heat and pressure into a strong, solid board.

Flakeboard manufactures Duraflake®, UltraPine and particleboard panels unfinished or upgraded with the most diverse offering of finishes available on the market: thermally fused melamine, paper overlays and paint.
