A masterful take on oak

Unilin Panels has introduced UNILIN Master Oak, melamine and HPL panelling with lifelike natural oak designs.

After several years research and development in the authentic recreation of natural materials, Unilin Panels has released a collection of six ready-to-use designs that bring the lifelike look and feel of oak. Stain-proof, scratch-resistant, colourfast in sunlight and made of 100% recovered wood, UNILIN Master Oak represents the future of decorative panels.

Achieving a look this lifelike has seen Unilin Panels combine a matt finish with a uniquely patterned textured surface that’s further enhanced with different types of pores and depth variations. Every Master Oak panel enjoys nature’s imperfections for faultless authenticity.

With very little on-going maintenance required, this finish has many applications. Ideal for use in offices, hotels, retail stores, restaurants, bars and other heavy-duty environments, UNILIN Master Oak lets spaces enjoy the natural beauty of oak with the simplicity of excellent durability and low maintenance.

What’s more, Unilin Panels makes UNILIN Master Oak decorative panels from 100% recovered wood. This has been made possible by a process of investment over the last six years to a sum of €40m. Now, Unilin Panels takes 90% of the wood used in its panels from post-consumer sources such as unwanted furniture, building wood and more.

Through advanced sorting and cleaning processes that are unmatched in the sector, Unilin removes all impurities for a high-grade wood fibre suitable for its products. This process gives more life to more than 1,000,000 tonnes of waste wood every year.

UNILIN Master Oak is available in six colours – Brown, Natural, Double Fumed, Light Natural, Everest White and Elegant Black – in a range of HDF panel sizes, as well as HPL and edging tape, for use in doors, walls, shelves and bespoke furniture production. UNILIN Master Oak can also be combined effortlessly with any type of substrate such as MDF or chipboard, and comes in fire-retardant, moisture-resistant and formaldehyde-free variants.

With the lifelike UNILIN Master Oak, projects can enjoy the premium look of oak surfaces with the practicality and affordability of modern decorative panelling.
