A comprehensive range of substrates to suit every joinery application.

Prime Panels offers a comprehensive range of substrates.  These can be overlaid with veneer, melamine, HPL or acrylic, or used unpressed and finished with a lacquer or paint coating.

All our New Zealand made standard and moisture-resistant MDF and particleboard is sustainably sourced with Environmental Choice NZ accreditation.  Our MDF FR and plywood substrates are imported from verifiable sustainable sources.    

Note: Clicking on the image in the Types section will give you more information on the substrate, including panel sizes and formaldehyde rating.



Our Prime MDF FR Black creates a stunning decorative effect when used as a negative detail for panels that are perforated for walls and ceilings. Our Prime MDF FR MR has a slight green tint. Both are rated as E0 for formaldehyde. 

We also offer three stunning ply options - Birch, Feather and Gaboon.  Note that plywood is a natural product that can be affected by humidity which can cause bowing or twisting.  Please refer to our Handling and Storage Guide for advice on how to reduce this risk.
