Stonewood is a beautiful, solid, strong material that is ideal for either horizontal or vertical surfaces where strength and appearance are both important.
Stonewood is used for decorative interior and exterior wall panels, rain screens, lockers, laboratory and office furniture, medical equipment carts, x-ray tables, work surfaces, fixtures, ergonomic keyboard platforms, tablet arms, cutting boards and any application requiring strength, rigidity, durability, moisture resistance and decorative appeal. Stonewood is also chemical resistant, having passed SEFA chemical testing requirements. Click here for more information about SEFA.
Its high strength to weight ratio allows Stonewood to be used in place of plywood, particleboard, fiberboard or other wood products. Stonewood panels maintain their dimensions and can be fabricated with standard wood-working tools. The material can be attached with screws or adhesives and is water and mold resistant. Stonewood can be sanded on both sides to improve adhesion in composite applications.
Stonewood is available as a Class A or Class B fire resistant wall cladding material. Stonewood Exterior also features UV resistance. Architects and designers are utilizing these highly customizable phenolic wall panels to create truly original building designs. Stonewood phenolic building cladding and rain screens offer a brand new pallete to the creative architect. Interior designers and decorators are also discovering new possibilities utilizing Stonewood phenolic wall panels.

Stonewood is a thermally fused material comprised of multiple sheets of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified kraft fiber paper. These kraft papers can be virgin or 100% recycled. To produce Stonewood, Fiberesin impregnates the raw core kraft sheets with phenolic resins that are then cured. The treated papers are then hot pressed, fusing the layers into a solid panel. Stonewood does not emit formaldehyde, is resistant to burning, and can support significant weight without breaking.
While traditional edge treatments can be used, Stonewood can be easily fabricated to be self-edging. Minimal sanding and polishing creates an attractive edge that is visually and tactilely pleasing (insert finished edge pictures). Stonewood is economical since no additional edge treatment is required.
Colors, Patterns and Woodgrains
Stonewood is available in an endless variety of solid colors, patterns, wood grains, stones, or marbles. It is also available in solid bright white with a white core. Real wood veneers are available as well. The Stonewood core material is available in Black, Brown, or Bleached. Click to open a PDF showing the colors and patterns available for Stonewood.
In addition to numerous colors and woodgrain options, Fiberesin’s unique custom graphics capabilities makes it possible to fuse any artwork, photograph, original image, or logo directly into the panel surface making it virtually impervious to moisture, abrasion, and stains.
Stonewood is also a chemical resistant material that can be used in laboratory, medical, or education environments where such surface properties are important. Stonewood has passed SEFA 8-PH-2010, Section 8.1 testing for chemical resistance. You can read more about SEFA here.
