Particle boards, MDF/HDF plates and similar products are often coloured for marketing reasons. The colouration is happening in the aqueous wood/glue mass with aqueous pigment preparations or basic dyestuffs. BTC offers you also preparations for labelling the different qualities for example for use in moist atmosphere applications, for conductible applications and to mark fire resistant boards.

A wide range of organic and inorganic pigments within the portfolio gives maximum cover within colour space and the ability to select tailor made solutions.
