Wood Composite Panel (also known as “Phenolic Resin Panel or Phenolic Composite Panel”) is the architectural alternative to traditional aluminum composite panel. While Wood Composite accurately describes the best known finishes of the product, this misnomer commonly distracts from the larger selection of finishes that can actually be ordered.
