PÜRDECO™ Laminated Panels at Olon!

Georgetown, ON. May 28th, 2020 – Olon Industries (Ontario, Canada) is pleased to announce the PÜRDECO™ panel division of Olon is up and running at two locations: in Georgetown, ON and at the OL Frontal Solutions plant in Jeffersonville, IN. The investment and installation of equipment was accomplished in two phases and is now complete.

“This state-of-the-art equipment is a game changer for Olon and OL Frontal Solutions.”, states Sylvain Duchesne, VP Sales & Marketing, “We are no longer limited by offering individual components to the woodworking industry – we can now provide a full program: door & accessory mouldings; center panels; slab doors (in some cases assembled doors at OLFS) and case good panels all in the same colour and material.”

“We saw an opportunity in specialized surfaces that were not being fulfilled by standard panel producers in North America as well as the “mixed materials” design trends. PÜRDECO™ complements what is already available in the market.”, comments Susan Doherty, Product Manager. Three collections have been launched under the PÜRDECO™ banner including: Olon’s Exclusive VelourTouch™ Ultra-Matte Panels; GlossTouch™ High Gloss Panels and Essentials – Olon’s take on a value-added, classic painted look. Custom lamination is available at Olon as well if customers have specific material or substrate requirements.

Olon panel lamination machinery is a heavily automated manufacturing process. “We have installed a robotic system to facilitate panel manipulation and eliminate scratching on the panel surface even though many of our materials come with a peel coat option.” Says Stu Gwilt, VP Operations, “The most unique thing about the equipment is the glue system we have incorporated. The PUR glue technology creates a surface quality that is smooth, durable and second-to-none.”
