Medite 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. Developed at Medite’s world class MDF facility in Clonmel, Medite Premier sets the standard and broadens the range of the Medite family of high performance MDF products.
The range of product applications for Medite Premier MDF includes, for example, contemporary and KD furniture, reproduction furniture, children's’ toys, snooker tables, shopfitting, hi-fi speaker cabinets and doors. Medite Premier comes in a wide selection of thicknesses. The remarkably consistent Medite Premier ensures that the most sophisticated finishing and processing techniques can be completed, offering great design freedom.
Medite Premier 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.
Medite Premier retains the light tan colour of the wood fibre from which it is manufactured.
Cut or profiled edges of Medite Premier 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.
The moisture content of Medite Premier 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, Medite Premier panels should be conditioned to the final environment for two to three days before cutting and fixing.
Medite Premier is expected to achieve a fire class rating of Euro Class D within the European classifications.
Medite Premier is manufactured under an NSAI registered I.S. EN ISO 9001:2008 quality management system.
