Working with Indowud
Indowud NFC allows you to design smarter and create faster. Handling Indowud NFC is as easy as conventional wood. Cut, nail, screw, drill, overlay laminate & veneers, print, paint or varnish, without easily splintering or cracking the product.
Indowud NFC boards are homogeneous in its structure. Constructive support/frames are required as per the table below for larger areas to avoid unwanted deformations. Use wide head screw, fully threaded and tighten slowly up to the surface of the board. Additionally, gluing on the joinery is also suggested.
Board thickness (mm)
Suggested Maximum Support Distance for Create (mm)
Suggested Maximum Support Distance for Build (mm)
Magnetic ball catch is a must at top and bottom of wardrobe shutters.
Suitable lipping all around / proper center support is required for the shelf to prevent deformation under pressure.
Select a distance of 15mm from the edge of the board to fastening point to avoid upward bending of the board.
The suggested distance may be increased or decreased depending on application.
Effortless thermoforming without any compromises to the strength is a unique feature of Indowud NFC. The high content of natural fibers ensures the density and dimensional stability is uncompromised post thermoforming.
130 – 160 degrees Celsius
1 – 2 min/mm of board thickness (for example 18 – 36 minutes for 18 mm board)
Locking (desired shape) time
1 – 2 minutes/mm of board thickness
The panel may shrink while heating and giving a shape
Suggested time may vary depending on the design.
Any pattern or design can be printed on Indowud NFC using a flat bed digital printer. Ensure the board is free from dust before printing. We also recommend applying a transparent sealant or a coat of varnish to protect the printed area from abrasion and dust.
High content of natural fibers enables superior nail holding and screwing. Choose fasteners depending on the type of application. Indowud NFC works with full threaded and wide head screws easily. Gluing the full surface of the edge adds to the strength of the joinery. Stainless steel screws are ideal for outdoor applications.
