Zero Added Formaldehyde
MEDITE CLEAR is an MDF panel with Zero Added Formaldehyde, developed specifically for use in environmentally sensitive interior applications, where formaldehyde emissions need to be kept to the minimum. Developed at MEDITE’s world class MDF facility in Clonmel, MEDITE CLEAR broadens the range of the MEDITE family of high performance MDF products.
MEDITE CLEAR is a panel product suitable for use in non-stressed applications. It is ideal for cabinets, display cases, furniture, fixtures and mouldings designed for environmentally sensitive areas such as museums, laboratories, art galleries, nursing homes, hospitals, nurseries and schools. MEDITE CLEAR is only suitable for use in internal dry conditions as defined in EN 622 part 5. Boards of this type are suitable for use only in Hazard Class 1 of EN 335-3.
No formaldehyde is added to the softwood fibres in the manufacture of MEDITE CLEAR. The resultant product far exceeds the rigid Class E1 (EN 622-1) low formaldehyde standard. Although formaldehyde is found naturally in wood, and no wood product can be entirely formaldehyde free, independent tests have shown that the free formaldehyde content of MEDITE CLEAR is less than 1.0mg/100g (equivalent or less than natural wood). The formaldehyde emissions from MEDITE CLEAR are well below general ambient outdoor levels.
