Timber Expo 2011 will see Accsys Technologies join forces with Medite Europe Ltd to present an imminent launch of Medite® Tricoya®, the first major innovation in the wood composites industry in more than 30 years. This unique, exterior, durable fibreboard has an expected life span of fifty years and will herald a revolution in wood based panel products for outdoor use.
Under the terms of an agreement signed earlier this month, Accsys Technologies will supply Medite Europe Ltd. with acetylated material over the next 17 months from the Company’s plant in Arnhem, Netherlands. The acetylated material will be transferred to Medite’s panel production facility in Clonmel, Ireland, where it will be processed to produce Medite Tricoya and the product will be distributed and sold by Medite in the UK, RoI and the Netherlands.
Peter Clifton, Product Manager for Coillte Panel Products says "We are really looking forward to presenting Medite Tricoya at Timber Expo 2011. Its high performance characteristics signify a real breakthrough for the industry. This new product is the beginning of a new era of highly durable and stable fibreboard panels; it has the potential to change the way wood based panel products are used outdoors".
Peter will be presenting the next generation of panel product to the audience at Timber Expo under the new timber technologies category on the 28th September.
Timber Expo is the UK’s only dedicated event for the timber industry. This year’s event will take place at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on the 27th and 28th September.
