Arauco North America

Arauco North America is the continent’s largest manufacturer of composite panels. With eight manufacturing sites across North America, the company produces a multi-faceted range of particleboard, medium and high density fiberboard products. The high density products (HDF) are primarily used by our customers in the manufacture of laminate flooring products.

Many of Arauco’s high quality panels are offered in a variety of specialized grades such as fire-rated, moisture resistant(MR), countertop, door core; VESTA (ULEF) and (NAF) no added formaldehyde varieties for specified applications.

Our raw particleboard panels are generally used in manufacturing kitchen and bathroom cabinets, residential and office furniture, and retail store fixtures and components for millwork industries. These products are branded as Duraflake®, Ultra™, and Vesta™ .

Trupan® MDF products provide an excellent substrate that is very smooth, stable and flat and offers superior design flexibility; MDF can be used in the same areas as particleboard but is most applicable for surface critical and intricate routering applications such as molding.

Arauco also manufactures FIBREX®, a thin HDF in a flexible range of lengths and widths with thicknesses that measure as low as 1.6mm.

Our finishing options include TFL (thermally-fused laminate/melamine) from the Prism TFL collection, along with hundreds of specialties *options* from suppliers such as Arclin/Coveright, Formica and Wilsonart. Our finished panels are available in a variety of textures that give a unique enhancement to these designs. As a finishing touch, our TFL designs are coordinated with 3DLaminate, HPL and edge-banding.

Arauco North America has a North American-wide manufacturing footprint and distribution network; all panels are CARB Compliant and ECC™ Certified. Products can qualify for LEED points, and can be specified FSC® Certified.

The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Arauco, based in Santiago Chile. Globally, Arauco manufactures a wide range of products including composite panels, plywood, millwork, lumber and pulp that are procured from company-owned and managed forests throughout South America.
