    After several years of research and development in the authentic recreation of natural materials, Unilin Panels has released a collection of six ready-to-use designs that bring forward the lifelike look and feel of oak. Stain-proof, scratch-resistant, colourfast and sustainable, UNILIN Master Oak represents the future of decorative panels.

    Achieving a look this lifelike has seen Unilin Panels combine a matt finish with a uniquely patterned textured surface that’s further enhanced with different types of pores and depth variations. Every panel within the collection enjoys nature’s imperfections for faultless authenticity.

    With very little on-going maintenance required, this finish has many applications. Ideal for use in offices, hotels, retail stores, restaurants, bars and other heavy-duty environments, the new range lets spaces enjoy the natural beauty of oak with the simplicity of excellent durability and low maintenance.

    Taking on the challenge of sustainability, Unilin Panels makes UNILIN Master Oak decorative panels from 100 per cent recovered wood. This has been made possible by a process of investment over the last six years to a sum of €40 million. Now, Unilin Panels takes 90 per cent of the wood used in its panels from post-consumer sources such as unwanted furniture, and building wood.

    Through advanced sorting and cleaning processes that are unmatched in the sector, all impurities are removed for a high-grade wood fibre suitable for the products. This process gives more life to more than 1,000,000 tonnes of waste wood every year.

    The new collection is available in six colours – Brown, Natural, Double Fumed, Light Natural, Everest White and Elegant Black – in a range of HDF panel sizes, as well as HPL and edging tape, for use in doors, walls, shelves and bespoke furniture production. UNILIN Master Oak can also be combined effortlessly with any type of substrate such as MDF or chipboard, and comes in fire-retardant, moisture-resistant and formaldehyde-free variants.

    UNILIN Panels develop solutions tailored to specific needs, with creativity and innovation as the key drivers of its business. It continuously invests in product design and new technologies. With the lifelike UNILIN Master Oak, projects can enjoy the premium look of oak surfaces with the practicality and affordability of modern decorative panelling.
