Our Prime MDF FR Black creates a stunning decorative effect when used as a negative detail for panels that are perforated for walls and ceilings. Our Prime MDF FR MR has a slight green tint. Both are rated as E0 for formaldehyde. Prime MDF FR has been tested according to EN1350-1 and achieves Euroclass B-s1,d0 for Prime MDF MR MR and B-s2,d0 for Prime MDF FR Black.
We also offer three stunning ply options - Birch, Feather and Gaboon. Note that plywood is a natural product that can be affected by humidity which can cause bowing or twisting. Please refer to our Handling and Storage Guide for advice on how to reduce this risk.
