Premier MDF is produced using superior wood refining technology and specially designed resins. Excellent face properties make it suitable for the thinnest laminates and surface coatings. End-users enjoy consistency of quality and thickness, as well as reduced tool wear.
Applications The range of product applications for MDF includes, for example, contemporary furniture, reproduction furniture, childrens’ toys, snooker tables, shop-fitting, hi-fi speaker cabinets and doors.
Performance Premier MDF is suitable for use in internal dry conditions as defined in EN 622 parts 1 and 5 and conforms to EN13986. Boards of this type are suitable for use in Hazard Class 1 of EN 335-3.
Appearance Premier MDF retains the light tan colour of the wood fibre from which it is manufactured.
Machining/finishing Cut or profiled edges should first be sanded with 150-240 grit, prior to painting. The recommended coating system for the edges is to seal, prime and topcoat with de-nibbing in between coats to produce a smooth finish. The desired finish on the face can be achieved by application of a base-coat and top-coat. If water-based coatings are used, it is important that forced drying or quick-drying systems be applied in order to maintain the quality of surface.
Conditioning The moisture is in the range of 7% +/- 2% at the time of manufacture. Changes in dimensions of wood and wood-based sheet materials occur due to changes in relative humidity. For this reason, panels should be conditioned to the final environment for two to three days before cutting and fixing.
Thickness tolerance is +/- 0.15mm
