Applications:  The range of product applications for Medite Trade MDF includes joinery components, interior furniture fittings, exhibition stands and event furniture.

Performance:  Medite Trade is suitable for use in internal dry conditions as defined in EN622 parts 1 and 5 and conforms to EN13986. Boards of this type are suitable for use in Hazard Class 1 of EN335-3.

Appearance:  Medite Trade retains the light tan colour of the wood fibre from which it is manufactured.

Conditioning:  The moisture content of Medite Trade 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 Trade panels should be conditioned to the final environment for two to three days before cutting and fixing.

Machining/finishing: Cut or profiled edges of Medite Trade 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 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 surface quality.
