Kerfkore Company - 10/25/2007

The Kerfkore Company Introduces Environmentally Friendly FlexGreen for Radius Applications

The Kerfkore Company, a manufacturer of patented bendable substrates and panel products, just introduced 
FlexGreen, an environmentally friendly product that can be used for radius applications as vast as one’s 
imagination.  It offers designers, specifiers, and manufacturers a quality bendable product that is better for the 
environment and one’s health.

FlexGreen is an ideal product for producing stable architectural panels.  The face, core, and glue used contain 
no added formaldehyde so the entire product is free of any added formaldehyde.  Formaldehyde, a colorless, 
pungent-smelling gas, can cause watery eyes, burning sensations in the eyes and throat, nausea and difficulty 
in breathing in some people.  The face is made from FSC certified Eucalyptus fiber hardboard attached to a 
particleboard substrate core that is made from 100% recovered and recycled fiber.  FlexGreen contributes to 
LEED credit points for MR 4.1, MR 4.2, and EQ 4.4.

Environmentally friendly FlexGreen allows for normal fabrication methods of attaching to a rigid structure and 
then application of face material.  It is designed to bend down to a 10" radius prior to lamination.  Due to its stable 
hardboard face, it is possible to laminate a single-ply veneer or other thin materials directly to the hardboard by 
use of a cold or hot press.  This process will result in a bending radius of 16" and 18".  FlexGreen is available in 
a choice of 48" X 96", 96" X 48", 48" X 120", and 120" X 48" size, all X ¾" thickness, and it weighs just 2.4 lbs. 
per square foot.
