BASF has won a materials prize for its 3D moldable wood fiberboards (3MF).

In contrast to standard thermoset boards, the new wood-based composite enables post-molding and its surface can be structured in short cycles on standard furniture molding equipment, the company said. The wood composites are based on BASF’s new binder technology acForm and the specific binder-fiber composition allows all three spatial axes of the composite to be formed at the same time.
