Medite Extreme Durability MDF

Medite Tricoya provides an external and wet area grade Medium Density Fibre board product. It makes use of Accoya treatment technology and has undergone extensive performance testing. It is said to carry a durability class (under EN350-2) of 1, or very durable i.e. equivalent to teak and more durable than oak. Creep and duration performance have also been tested as well as its resistance to weathering.

Benefits

The advent of an MDF product with such high durability opens up many market opportunities in Australia because such features allow it to be used in applications not previously deemed suitable including wet areas and external claddings.

Comments

Needs to prove itself under Australian conditions.
