New Euro X Series from M.L. Campbell

The Euro X™ line is the first group of exterior products available in the Euro Series, combining the craftsmanship of European wood finishing technology with easy-to-apply characteristics. Euro X offers durability and a drying time that is ideal for shop applications. Superior elasticity allows the finishes to flex with the wood’s natural contractions and expansions due to changes in humidity and temperature. In addition, each Euro X offering provides excellent resistance to chemicals, UV exposure and scratches.  Pigmented and clear polyurethane options can be used on furniture, kitchen and bathroom cabinets, dormitory, household, display and office furniture, when a very hard, long lasting finish is required. Both the clear and pigmented products provide an excellent (high solids) finish that is scratch and mar resistant and moisture resistance.  Learn more at or contact your local lacquer specialist.

Blum recently launched a brand new, more user-friendly website.  In addition to being more compatible with smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices, the new site is more clearly structured to facilitate easier navigation.  A media center provides a central location to view videos and download all product literature.  Different sections provide up-to-date information on products and services, all viewable on a single page. The brand new Ideas section is designer for the end-user and explains the idea of DYNAMIC SPACE and offers an Inspiration Boulevard full of real life application ideas. 

Medina Texture From Flakeboard

Complementing an already impressive collection of straight-grained designs, Medina is a heavy surface texture designed to give a distinctive, realistic appearance and touch to the linear woodgrain collections.  Medina is available in 4' x 8' panels, in thicknesses from 6mm to 3/4".  This texture is available on more than 20 colors from the Opera, Cocktail, Linea, Specialty Woodgrains, and Solid Series.  Matching edge banding, moldings, and 3DL are available.  Please refer to the complementary color reference chart for available options.  Additional patterns and thicknesses may be available.  Contact your local Atlantic Plywood representative for more information and samples.  No matter which melamine you choose, the application of a striking texture like Medina will add a unique individuality to your next project.
