Using the most current Concrete Form MDO technology, our Crown 48 Hardwood combines a proven melamine resin MDO with hardwood veneer.  This high resin content Melamine MDO is more alkaline resistant than traditional phenolic resin based Concrete Form MDO providing a more durable panel for your job site needs.

Features & Benefits

Crown 48 Hardwood is constructed with high strength hardwood face and back veneer and Douglas fir inner plies.  The high resin content Melamine MDO is applied in a one-step process.  All adhesives used are fully waterproof phenolic resins that meet CSA exterior glue bond standards.

Available in 1220 x 2440 mm and 610 x 2440 mm in 17.5mm thickness

  • APA Structurally Certified
    All of our Hardwood products are structurally certified by the APA and undergo rigorous inspection and testing by our Quality Control team.

  • Hardwood Face and Back
    A durable hardwood veneer is used for the face and back providing a smoother pouring surface and a more durable panel than our softwood options.

  • Melamine MDO
    Crown 48 is manufactured with a special Melamine MDO which stands up to high-alkaline concrete mixes better than traditional phenolic based concrete form MDO.

  • Two Piece Inner Plies
    Our two piece, Douglas fir inner ply construction method is engineered to provide a more solid panel that can better stand up to job site wear and tear.

  • Multi-Layer Edge Protection
    For additional moisture protection, all panels are edge puttied then coated with a dark blue, aluminized, resin-rich alkyd edge seal.

  • Factory-Applied Release Agent
    Crown 48 panels come factory coated with Nox-Crete Form Coating, a high quality, water-based, chemically active release agent.
