Columbia Forest Products' MPX® offers a smoother veneer core panel with Purebond® formaldehyde-free technology.

MPX® is Columbia Forest Product’s latest core innovation—a veneer core panel with a smoother surface for a better finish.

Columbia’s MPX® panels are constructed with a Meinan®-peeled hardwood crossband beneath the decorative face and back veneers. This crossband reduces telegraphing, and creates a smoother finish, ideal for finished and painted applications. MPX® ships standard with Purebond® formaldehyde-free technology, and are an ideal panel for applications needing a quality veneer core panel with smoother veneers.

Hardwood crossbands have less variation in density than softwood crossbands found in a typical veneer core panel. MPX® demonstrates the excellent strength and screw-holding properties of a veneer core panel without the telegraphing.

Perfect for Pre-finished

With a smoother veneer, reduced telegraphing, and improved appearance over traditional veneer core panels, MPX® products look great pre-finished. Moore Newton keeps all popular dimensions of MPX® pre-finished Maple in stock for free next-day delivery.

Formaldehyde-free, FSC®

MPX® comes standard with Purebond® formaldehyde-free construction. Moore Newton also offers MPX® in FSC® certified upon request. Use MPX® to contribute to LEED® requirements and meet indoor air-quality standards on your projects.
