About PanelWhite

Prefinished Cabinetry Panelling

PanelWhite is a thin single sided White UV Satin coated MDF cured using Bates Surfaces’ unique UltraLight™ Technology. Its makeup is acrylic, so it contains no chlorine or heavy metals, making PanelWhite an eco-friendly alternative to other panel overlays such as vinyl.

The unique UltraLight™ Technology makes PanelWhite a durable prefinished surface that’s ideal for cabinetry backs, draw bottoms, kitchen backs, infill panels for sliding wardrobe doors, door skins, exhibition panelling, counter and bar fronts, desk surfaces and office screens and non-structural/non fire-rated interior wall linings.

PanelWhite is designed with overcoatability, so you can use as a pre-finished panel and paint your colour of choice.
