Melamine Faced MDF

Medium density fibreboard panels coated with a decorative & resin-permeated paper overlay.

Melamine finishes provide some of the most extensive and varied finishes available form wood based panel products. The paper used for the melamine face can be textured and printed to mimic real wood veneers or coloured to match a range of different RAL codes, no matter how vivid.

In addition to this, the MDF core means the product is easily machinable and consistent throughout in its manufacture.

Hanson Plywood have Melamine Faced MDF in the sizes and finishes below in stock, but can source almost any desired finish from our network of specialist suppliers. Please enquire with our sales team for more information.

Environment

Hanson Plywood sources its collection of Melamine Faced MDF Panels from FSC® & PEFC™ Certified forest concessions. The company’s robust Chain of Custody management system ensures that these certifications are respected and adhered to throughout the supply chain.

In the case of these products, certification claims are not present on our paperwork as we do not sell the product as certified for logistical and operational reasons. Should you require evidence of the broken chain of custody, this can be provided. For further information, please refer to our Environment Page.

Quick Reference Guide – Fire Ratings

A request we commonly receive is that for a panel with a 1 hour or ½ hr fire rating.

30 or 60mins relates to the concept of Fire Resistance and typically relates to the ability of an elevation or door to withstand the passage of a fully developed fire for said amount of time.

Euroclass relates to the concept of Reaction to Fire and focuses on initial fire growth phase. A Euroclass rated panel may form part of a fire barrier system requiring 30 or 60 mins Fire Resistance overall. We recommend that suitability of a Euroclass rated panel within the design is based upon 3rd party assessment or independent testing specific to the project in question.

There are 7 Euroclass classifications ranging from A1 to F. In line with the Construction Products Regulation (2013) each Euroclass rating requires testing against the relevant European fire test methods – see table below.

Hanson Plywood offer a range of panels manufactured with an A1 rating (see below). Untreated wood-based panels such as plywood, OSB, MDF & Chipboard typically achieve a Euroclass D or E rating. Fire rated panels can be supplied to a Euroclass B or Euroclass C fire performance as required depending upon regulatory requirements.
