ENGINEERED WOOD PRODUCTS

New application development activities of Omya have reached out into the wood-based panel industry.

Using Calcium Carbonate to reduce manufacturing costs of fiberboards or providing a Calcium Carbonate based – and in-line realized – innovative surface treatment of wood-based panels, is a well perceived and highly appreciated innovation in the industry.

Adding Omyawood® to wood-based panel products allows to increase your raw material efficiency. Significant cost saving results can be achieved on existing production lines with minimal process or equipment changes. Omyawood® can support cost competitiveness and is a readily available, consistent, and easy to apply raw material.

In addition to our Calcium Carbonate range we also distribute a wide range of other products for this market as per the table below.
