INNOVATION IN THE WORLD OF FINISHINGS FOR RECREATIONAL VEHICLES GIVES RISE TO A NEW PANEL: ELLESSEBI 3.0
Resistant, lightweight and eco-sustainable, ELLESSEBI 3.0 is an extraordinarily vehicle Sector. It was first presented last August, including in this journal, eliciting a great deal of interest among industry operators, since it responds perfectly to the needs of RV manufacturers, providing very high technical performance specification. ELLESSEBI 3.0 is created using poplar chips made from virgin wood and provides a very hard surface that is perfectly smooth and filmable with any material: phenol papers, melamine, PVC, Alkorcell and finish foils. The minimum possible thickness is 10 mm(current production is 12 mm), whereas the panel dimensions can reach a maxi format of 5200 x 2200 mm.
ELLESSEBI 3.0 is eco-sustainable because the use of adhesives has been reduced to a minimum; the adhesives used are odourless and formaldehyde free. In addition, the poplar used is 100%grown in Italian plantations, thereby ensuring a low environmental impact in terms of transportation, and is from forests that meet FSC and PEFC standards. Production processes are state of the art, the most advanced anywhere in the world, using production waste from virgin wood to power a biomass power plant that supplies electrcity to the production facilities.
“Our ELLESSEBI 3.0 panels are specifically designed for the motorhome and caravan industry, but are also enjoying great success in the furniture sector,” explains sales manager Alessandro Marchini. “They’re lightweight, perfectly filmable, eco-sustainable and are easy to work with. We have a high production capability, combined with high quality products, guaranteeing our customers superior service flexibility. We’re also capable of supplying small scale quantities of ELLESSEBI 3.0, as is often requested by the RV sector, thanks to the use of advanced production processes that allow us to focus on niche products, special work processes, and fast customized delivery times. Other producers, who may be much bigger than we are, can’t always provide this sort of flexibility.”
