MONTREAL, April 26 /CNW Telbec/ - Uniboard is pleased to launch its
first-ever green product, Nu Green, a raw particleboard that contains no
urea-formaldehyde. As a leader in its industry, Uniboard is proud to provide a
green solution to professionals who want to reduce energy-resource consumption
in their projects.
Nu Green is the premium solution for every project!
Nu Green particleboard is certified as an Environmentally Preferable
Product (EPP) by the Composite Panel Association (CPA). It contains 100%
post-industrial wood fibers, protecting trees and avoiding waste disposal.
Because the manufacturing process for Nu Green raw particleboard requires no
urea-formaldehyde, it produces emissions that do not exceed normal outdoor
levels. Nu Green also helps professionals obtain LEED credits and points in
either of the two categories: Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ 4.4) and
Materials and Resources (MR 4.1, 4.2, 5.1 and 5.2).
Our Sayabec manufacturing plant
Nu Green is manufactured at Uniboard's facility in Sayabec, Quebec. It is
composed mostly of spruce, pine and fir, all recognized for their yield and
light weight, and its low density gives it a major advantage. In addition,
thanks to resin technology, Nu Green meets ANSI standards governing moisture
Founded in 1982, Uniboard today boasts a network of eight cutting-edge
manufacturing facilities. Its mission is to be a leading integrated supplier
of reconstituted wood products, in the manufacture of particleboard, medium
and high-density fiberboard (MDF and HDF), decorative panels as well as

company's strength lies in its total vertical integration, with its own
manufacturing facilities, research & development department and innovative
products. In addition, Uniboard is committed to making protection of the
