MycoBoard™ products are a biofabricated, certified sustainable, form of engineered wood. They are grown using mycelium – “nature’s glue” – which is formaldehyde-free, safe, and healthy and produces panels that are strong, machinable and fire-resistant. This makes MycoBoard™ panels an ideal solution for the home, office, or school.

Current Applications

Pressing the material right to its final form removes the need for milling or routing, reducing waste and energy.

    In addition to our own 3x6’ press, Ecovative has partnered with multiple North American mills to produce industry standard 4x8’ and 5x10’ panels in greater volumes. These panels are available in limited release and can be purchased through our sales team.

    Resin Technology

    MycoBoard is powered by our mResin™ technology and is directly compatible with existing presses. Loose particles, from hemp to conventional wood fibers, are then combined with our proprietary mycelium strains. The growth of the mycelium converts some of the particles into a natural and safe biological glue.

Further more, unlike conventional chemical resin systems, mResin™ adhesive is grown on site, reducing transport costs.

    Our mResin™ adhesive system is currently being piloted in multiple mills in North America.

    Surface Finish

    MycoBoard has a pleasing all-natural surface finish which can be coated using conventional finishing systems or laminated.

    Stains, paints, and laminates work well on MycoBoard.
