MEDITE FQ (Flooring Quality) is an MDF panel developed specifically with a higher density and improved moisture resistance, making it ideal for use in laminated flooring applications. MEDITE FQ is a suitable substrate for a wide variety of overlay materials such as wood veneers, high pressure laminates and melamine impregnated paper overlays. MEDITE FQ is suitable for use in internal dry conditions as defined in EN 622 part 5. Boards of this type are suitable for use in Hazard Class 1 of EN 335-3.
MEDITE FQ exceeds the requirements of type HDF board outlined in the product standard developed by European MDF Manufacturers “Requirements for HDF for laminated and veneered flooring.” Moisture content of Medite FQ is in the range of 7% +/ - 2% at the time of manufacture. Changes on dimensions of wood and wood – based sheet materials occur due to changes in relative humidity. For this reason, both raw panels and laminate as well as the finished panels should be conditioned before and after lamination to allow materials to reach equilibrium. Laminated and veneered flooring elements are designed to be balanced, i.e. laminated both sides.
