Think Green. Change the market with Nu Green.
Montreal, April 26, 2007 – Uniboard is pleased to launch its first-ever green product, Nu Green, a raw particleboard that contains no urea-formaldehyde. As a leader in its industry, Uniboard is proud to provide a green solution to professionals who want to reduce energy-resource consumption in their projects.
Nu Green is the premium solution for every project!
Nu Green particleboard is certified as an Environmentally Preferable Product (EPP) by the Composite Panel Association (CPA). It contains 100% post-industrial wood fibers, protecting trees and avoiding waste disposal. Because the manufacturing process for Nu Green raw particleboard requires no urea-formaldehyde, it produces emissions that do not exceed normal outdoor levels. Nu Green also helps professionals obtain LEED credits and points in either of the two categories: Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ 4.4) and Materials and Resources (MR 4.1, 4.2, 5.1 and 5.2.
Our Sayabec manufacturing plant
Nu Green is manufactured at Uniboard’s facility in Sayabec, Quebec. It is composed mostly of spruce, pine and fir, all recognized for their yield and light weight, and its low density gives it a major advantage. In addition, thanks to resin technology, Nu Green meets ANSI standards governing moisture resistant glue.

Its mission is to be a leading integrated supplier of reconstituted wood products, in the manufacture of particleboard, medium and high-density fiberboard (MDF and HDF), decorative panels as well as laminate flooring, for the Canadian, United States and export markets.
