SILENZIO is a lightweight and exceptionally stable particleboard produced from the sticks of a flowering plant whose genus derives its
name from the ancient Greek word Korkoros. It is naturally voluminous and has natural characteristics which aid fire resistance and
sound reduction. It has outstanding environmental benefits as the plant is an annually renewable resource with a high biomass production
per unit of land area.

Ideal material for doors, furniture, counters, worktops, roof boarding, partitioning walls, packaging and warehouse shelves. KORUS can be cut
by a hand or power saw and machined (routed, spindled, planed and bored) with normal woodworking machinery. Tungsten carbide cutting edges
are recommended for use with powered tools. Conventional woodworking fixings and techniques can be applied to KORUS which provides good
holding power for screw fixings into the panel faces; generally edge fixing is not recommended. For bonding wood to KORUS it is recommended
to use a high solids content adhesive with low flowing properties such as polyvinyl acetate (PVA).
