High Density High Moisture Resistance is upgraded plywood that offers greater durability. No trees are felled to produce HDHMR wood as it is entirely made from forest wood waste, agricultural waste, fiber chips, and peeled eucalyptus trunk. The wooden and fiber chips are combined through a homogenous construction process, and pressed together using a special glue pressing technique to form high density hardwood.

The process gives HDHMR its unique advantages in comparison to plywood. The tightly bound bonds in HDHMR yield water resistance and keep it termite free. This makes it suitable for moisture prone spaces in the home such as kitchen and bathroom shutters, and outdoor fixtures, where plywood would begin to peel off in layers. It’s also a great material to use in tropical climates such as ours.
Made in accordance with ISI standards, this durable material is also flexible, meaning fewer compromises on design ideologies. It has a smooth finish and glossy luster that add an aesthetic appeal.
As the climate crisis begins to disrupt lives world over, the onus is on each and every one of us, as individuals and institutions, to educate, and promote sustainable practices in our everyday lives.
