Hardwood veneered panel with a melamine back
Provide opaque colors and wipe-down interiors, matched to natural wood veneer exteriors.
Versa is used to construct case goods with natural wood veneered exteriors and melamine-impregnated, paper interiors. Melamine interiors guarantee a mar and moisture resistant finish as well as offering opaque colors.
Versa panels pair one of six popular melamine colors and patterns with the full range of decorative hardwood veneers. Panels are typically produced on particleboard or MDF cores, but they are also available on ArmorCore®. Any of States' NOVA finishes may be applied to the veneered side.
Versa's environmental characteristics are primarily dependent on the core that is specified. Cores are available to produce No-Added-Urea- Formaldehyde and Forest Stewardship Council certified panels. Particleboard and MDF cores generally qualify for pre-consumer, recycled content. If NOVA finishes are specified, they will not release any volatile organic compounds or hazardous air pollutants in manufacturing or in use. These coatings are roll applied in a flat line system that recycles excess finish, eliminating waste and curing instantaneously. NOVA finishes comply with South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) Rule 1113, and contributes to LEED IEQ 4.2: Low Emitting Materials-Paints and Coatings. Versa panels exceed CARB 93120.12.
All States Industries' panels comply with ANSI/HPVA HP-1-2009 American National Standard for Hardwood and Decorative Plywood. UV Cured, Acrylated Epoxy, Polyester or Urethane coatings are ranked the highest in performance of 13 types of finishes compared in the Architectural Woodwork Standards.
