It is a revolutionary product which is maintenance free with easy installation having unlimited qualities like being acoustic, waterproof, termite proof, etc. I am very happy with it doing at least ten projects, as its response is tremendous and industry professionals like it hand in hand. Even one of the architects asked me to install in his office then-andthere, when I introduced it to him. It is rare at first interaction; generally they say put yours product here, we will see! But, with it we got such an impressive response. One of my clients was surprised seeing its application in the washroom, saying that veneer is not used in washroom, it will be damaged with water. So, this product is so natural that what texture you use, it gives the real natural look of that product like stone, wood, fabric. No one believes that it is Polypropylene. It will grow tremendously!

Today people want to finish their interior work in quick time. In commercial sites like corporate offices and hotels they don’t have time to adopt traditional method like framing, plywood paneling and then laminating for wall paneling purpose; I believe RMD Board is very much suitable for them. In my case in a renovating site for marriage hall having tiles, the owner was to adopt traditional method of wall paneling mentioned above that must have taken 20 days; we completed that with RMD Boards in just three days with 20 percent cost saving to their earlier budget. It’s value for money product which gives original look due to its finishes. When it is touched it gives a cushion like feeling also due to being honeycomb structure. In Chennai most prominent problem is termiteand moisture for that it is very much suitable product.
