Masonite Introduces Lighter Joiner Panel- Literature Available

The Commercial Division of Masonite Corporation has introduced a marine joiner panel that is 30 percent lighter than comparable products now used in the marine industry.

Firetest™ 80-32 is an asbestosfree asbestosfree product, and comes in 4 by 8-foot panels. They can be custom- made to varying thicknesses from i/2 inch to 1 inch for installation as perimeter bulkheads or bulkheads in interior passageways.

The joiner panel provides a 30 percent greater variable load factor than is possible with existing panels on the market. It is possible to save a ton for every seventy-three 4 by 8-foot panels used in a typical project, according to tests conducted for the Commercial Division. These joiner panels will not shrink or wick water. They carry U.S. Coast Guard approval.

The Commercial Division will sell Firetest 80-32 as a core material directly to shipyards or joiners. After final sanding, this marine liner panel can be faced with a variety of materials including HPL and Marlite brand wall plank w i t h o u t further surface preparation.
