Greensboro, NC – Columbia Forest Products introduces Europly PLUS™, a premium veneer core panel with a visually striking Eurostyle edge. Assembled with PureBond® urea formaldehyde-free technology, It meets CARB Phase 2 formaldehyde emission limits while contributing to LEED® building credits.

Europly PLUS can also be specified as FSC® certified to establish a link with third-party certified forest management standards. Extremely uniform and practically void free, this all-birch hardwood core provides excellent physical properties for superior machinability and an exposed-edge detail favored in modern, green design.

Todd Vogelsinger, Columbia’s Director of Marketing, said that “Europly PLUS is a direct response to the specification market’s call for that classic, linear, unmasked edge detail – but constructed with CARB P2 standards and the option of FSC certification. It’s the result of a successful collaboration with Europe’s finest plywood operations and it meets the standards Columbia sets for its domestic production.”

Columbia’s Europly PLUS™ panels raise the ante of quality in any furniture, millwork or cabinetry project where it can be incorporated for exceptional results. Add the decorative face of your choice, and from any angle, the look is a visually striking, premium panel where the edge competes with the face for beauty.
