The Standard MDF panel is beige/taupe colored and is made by dry processing the fibers with the addition of synthetic resins and gluing under high temperature press.
Panel with a density calibrated for use in the door industry.
Made of a hardwood-based, short and homogeneous, wood fiber, it is characterized by:
- a high core machinability
- a maximization of the assembly qualities
- a smooth and dense surface, fine texture, low porosity
MDF Standard faces are particularly dense and offer a high quality surface for lacquering. Medium panel edges are low-absorbing and easy for finishing.
Fields of application
Class 1 panel – Non-structural use in dry environments
- Layout and decoration, furniture
- Interior finishing elements (baseboards, moldings…)
- Machined and molded furniture fronts
- Machined and turned parts (billiards, frames…)
- Door elements
Panel sanded on both faces to a 180-grit smoothness, allowing the use of a complete range of finishes: lacquer, varnish, paint, melamine decorations, wood or metal veneer
Reminder: Medium® Standard can only be used in dry environments (service class 1) and in biological risk class 1 according to EN622-5 table 5.
Store away from water.
For storage and during installation and use, MDF Standard must be properly protected from direct contact with water. It needs to be stacked flat and adequately joisted with appropriate spacing according to the thickness to avoid creeping.
An essential step for a great finish.
MDF Standard has excellent compatibility with all existing finishing and bonding products on the market.
MDF Standard comes sanded to a 180-grit smoothness; slight dusting may be required before applying a light filler. The edges will receive a penetrating pore filler insulation to block fibers and absorption.
Water-based coatings are not recommended. Solvent-based coatings applied with a spray gun are preferred.
MDF Standard eliminates the need for any filling/coating preparation: you apply a base coat (primer or undercoat) and then, after lightly sanding, paint both faces (glycerophthalic or acrylic paint).
Do not use stain on MDF Standard.
Screwing MDF Standard (with wood or particle board type screws) offers the best pull-out resistance. However, it is possible to nail or staple the panels faces in addition to gluing.
Any wood glue is suitable for MDF Standard!
MDF Standard is compatible with quick-setting vinyl adhesives, polychloroprenes, hot melt, urea-formaldehyde, polyurethane adhesives, etc. If MDF Standard is to be bonded to another material, the adhesive must be selected according to the surface characteristics of both components.
When the panels are installed over large surfaces (wall cladding, floors, ceilings), provide sufficient expansion joints between the panels (2 to 3 mm).
