Richwood Industries introduces PolyBak Ultra, a safe, sustainable replacement for phenolic backer, says the company. Richwood Industries manufactures PolyBak in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The .035” thick PolyBak Ultra offers a stronger balancing backer than .028” phenolic and it provides a better moisture barrier, adds Richwood Industries.

Typical uses include a balancing backer for substrates faced with decorative laminates, a paintable overlay and door skin applications. Standard widths include 25”, 31”, 49” and 61”. Standard lengths include 97”, 101”, 121” and 145”. It is GreenGuard certified with no added formaldehyde. Contact the company for additional information.
