— THE 100% BIO-CIRCULAR

CIRCULAR MATTERS PANEL

The Circular Matters Panel is a solid, high-density finishing material for interior projects and furniture, which contributes to a healthy living environment thanks to its natural composition. It is made with a new technology that converts plantbased sidestreams such as beer spent grain and reed into a strong material. No harmful substances in your interior, nor in nature.

SOLID SUSTAINABILITY

Circular Matters Panels are solid panels, coloured throughout the core. We don’t make veneer or laminates, because we don’t believe that hiding the (fossil-based resin containing) panels underneath them is a good direction to go towards.
Solid Panels have the benefit that they are pretty when CNC-milled or sawed, without any edge banding. This saves costs, but also enable true circularity (because recycling these egde bands is really challenging). Moreover, it’s way easier to make pretty mitre cuts.

STRONG AND DURABLE

The Circular Matters Panels can be compared to HPL and hardwood in terms of technical and processing properties: hard and sturdy but processable with standard woodworking machines.

    • Milling and drilling: no problem
    • Sawing: just use your panel saw
    • Hinges or runner systems: we know which systems to use

We believe in less, but better. Our materials are stronger than conventional resin-based panels, so that’s why we only make thin panels. The same strength, but with less material (and an even greather CO₂ reduction).

— TRULY BIO-CIRCULAR

o% RESINS,
100% RECYCLABLE

The Circular Matters Panel is 100% bio-circular. By this we mean that the panels:

  • are made entirely from biobased feedstock (the vast majority of which are side streams)
  • do not contain harmful substances, so no danger for health or environment
  • are completely recyclable, without the addition of any kind of glue

OTHER PROPERTIES YOU MIGHT LIKE

The Circular Matters Panels are at the forefront of sustainable innovation, but the machines you need to process them are old-school.

    • Naturally flame retardant and self-extinguishing
    • Good dimensional stability when CNC-milling
    • Very local: all our raw materials come from Belgium, Netherlands or Germany
    • Several surface finishing possibilities, including high gloss

ENHANCED NATURAL BIOPOLYMERS

Circular Matters® uses a proprietary process to convert plant-derived biomass into an alternative to synthetic materials and fossil-based polymers. Instead of using established biomass streams (e.g. polysaccharides extracted from corn), we are able to valorise sidestreams that are currently less used. Our processes convert this type of biomass into materials with an interesting and unique set of properties. This way we are expanding the possibilities of what can be achieved with biobased materials.
