Furniture Backing Board
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 Capabilities and Scale
Our Green Island facilities and team are producing custom molded MycoBoard shapes as well as 3x6' panels on our own presses.
We have multiple presses designed to accept molded tooling for the production of chair backs, custom architectural elements, and complex geometries. 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.
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.
Installing our bio-resin system can be a valuble upgrade to existing particle board plants, completely eliminating any harmful emissions, both during application and during end use, while maintaining compatability with both continious and multi-open discontinious lines. 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.
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.
