Panel material
PP(Polypropylene
PP (Polypropylene) raw materials are free of
formaldehyde, plasticizers, TVOCs and
other toxic substances. It has a
heat-resistance range of -20 ℃ to 120 ℃,
They are often used as food-grade material and green building materials.
PVC(Polyvinyl Chloride)
PVC contains plasticizers and has a
lower heat-resistant temperature than Polypropylene 
and releases dioxins in high temperature.
The elimination of PVC use has become a common goal
for the global community of more than 100 countries.
Melamine resin
Melamine resin is made of melamine and
formaldehyde polymerization,
which is harmful to the body by releasing poisons
when exposed to heat. Formaldehyde has been designated
as a carcinogenic and teratogenic toxicant by the World Health Organization.
Printing technology
Licensed by the largest manufacturer of
decorative materials,
Dai Nippon PrintingCo., Ltd. (DNP) Japan.
ECO+ Panels simulate the look of KD Panels™
to achieve the closest color matching
between the inside and outside of your woodwork.
These produces use a roller to print wood grains onto the surface. Due to size and spacing limitations of these rollers, wood patterns are very repetitive causing the final product to look dull and unrealistic.
Substrate materials
Block Board
Block Board is made solid wood strips
stacked and glued together,
providing firm and solid structure,
good load-bearing capacity,
and is fairly more resistant to moisture.
Particleboard
Made of wood chips that are pressed and
glued together into panel shape with a hot press,
due to the size of the wood chips,
surface does is not flat and is prone to absorb moisture.
MDF
Wood is broken into dust and then glued and
pressed with a hot press. 
Compared to particleboard, MDF is more cost effective but less durable.
Note: Adhesive is made from a variety of chemical materials, common ingredients include formaldehyde, melamine, and other toxins, however the content level of these meet the national safety testing standards for building materials and daily necessities. For the safety of your home, it is recommended to purchase F1 low-formaldehyde substrates. F1 and F3 block board available at KD.
