Wood Replacement Material
North American Container Corporation, announces the
development of Fibre/Core®, wood replacement material comprised of
solid fibre and corrugated board. This revolutionary material is made
to specific formulas which determine the relative position and
thickness of the fibre and corrugated layers for required stiffness and
compression strength. Fibre/Core® planks are produced in varying
thickness, widths, and combinations.
These planks can be processed by standard woodworking
saws and can be tenoned and mortised for joining. Central webs of solid
fibre are possible in Fibre/Core® planks yielding structures
similar to H and I beams. Fibre/Core® has a great advantage over
hollow solid fibre tubes in that a core glue surface is present after
notching or tenoning which allows lap joined frames to be made.
Fibre/Core® can be processed into pallets, top support frames and
corner posts for heavy duty packaging where high stacking strength,
clamp or fork truck strength is necessary.

| You're concerned about how your product
is packaged and in what condition it arrives on your customer's dock.
You realize that packaging is an opportunity to set yourself apart from
the competition and create another favorable image for your product and
company. A Fibre/Core® pallet can only enhance a positive packaging
|Layered and/or edged with
solid fiber or wood, Fibre/Core® as raw sheet stock offers a stiff,
light weight alternative to pressed or strand board surfaces.
Ideal for edge banding applications and as an internal core for water
proof laminated tables and furniture surfaces.
|By varying the build-up content, NACC can
engineer a Fibre/Core® solution that has the combination of
strength and cost that is best for you and your product.
