Prism TFL is available with range of ARAUCO’s standard and specialty panel substrates and grades. We can accommodate your design considerations for things like safety and practicality by specifying fire-rated, moisture-resistant and even environmental-friendly, low-emitting substrates.
For your convenience, this table provides an overview of TFL substrate ranges for ARAUCO primary brands across all facilities. Mill-to-mill availability will vary. Please contact your account representative for production capability and minimums.
Prism TFL designs with InCopper™ antimicrobial technology offer built-in protection against mold and mildew.
Currently available only in the United States, the proprietary InCopper agent is EPA-registered (number 93650) for its antimicrobial properties that protect the surface of PRISM TFL panels against mold, mildew and odor-causing bacteria.

When looking for some of the best performing, moisture-resistant industrial panels for your projects, ARAUCO has moisture-resistant (MR) options that are right for you. All our MR products deliver the flexibility, stability, durability and performance customers have come to expect from ARAUCO panels. If you are sourcing a moisture resistant substrate, we have a selection that addresses your kitchen, bath, laboratory cabinet and/or other high humidity environment needs. For Specifications, please refer to the documentation for your chosen Moisture-Resistant (MR) substrate in the product pages for UltraPB MR Particleboard and Trupan MR MDF.
Exclusively from ARAUCO, fire-rated (FR), thermally fused laminate is available in a variety of woodgrain, print and solid designs on fire-rated particleboard substrates. Our nationally recognized fire-rated panels are classified by Underwriters Laboratories for surface burning characteristics using the UL 723 Test Method or CAN/ULC-S102 Test method. ARAUCO FR panels are retardant throughout, stay classified after cutting and have a wide range of sizes available. Visit the Certifications section of the UL website , for certificate numbers and additional information.
Prism is a truly sustainable surfacing solution. Our substrates are made from from wood fiber sourced from certified, recycled, recovered, and/or controlled sources. With options for moisture resistance, fire resistance or VESTA ULEF/NAF technology, Prism TFL complies with TSCA Title VI/CARB-2 and meets relevant green building standards including LEED, Green Globes, IgCC, and the CALGreen Code.
You can love Prism’s cradle-to-gate information offered through the industry-wide Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for particleboard and MDF manufactured in North America.
Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA) data for Prism can be found within the EPDs and Transparency Briefs. ARAUCO HPDs are consistent with our responsible ingredient management policy and are complementary to our LCAs. The HPDs may also contribute to points in LEED v4.
VESTA composite panels are produced using a low emitting technology. This process uses ultra low emitting formaldehyde (ULEF) or no added formaldehyde (NAF) resin systems. This makes it the optimal choice for additional LEED points, and other ULEF/NAF specified projects. Like our other panels, VESTA products are made from wood fiber sourced from certified, recycled, recovered, and/or controlled sources, and are ECC™ (Eco-Certified Composite) sustainably certified. VESTA is available in both particleboard and MDF in a wide range of thicknesses and dimensions, and can be raw or TFL finished with your choice of design from the Prism collection.
