МДФ{{en:MDF}}

MDF

MDF — fiberboard of average density. This material is a slab compressed wood fine fraction made from dried wood fibers treated with synthetic binders and formed into a carpet, followed by hot pressing (density from 650 to 850 kg/m3); The main binder fiber is lignin, which is released by heating wood. The MDF boards are not used harmful epoxy resins and phenol.

Compared to traditional MDF is a high-quality material. MDF The development was the result of improvements in technology, applied in the manufacture of chipboard. The use of high-quality birch raw MDF production distinguishes YUPG good appearance.

MDF offers excellent performance, quality and closeness to the sustainability of natural wood, and the possibility of special treatment and embossing the surface makes this type of plate production is particularly attractive for the production of high quality furniture.

At present, our company also produces high density MDF, the so-called HDF (HDF — High Density Fiberboard) HDF is a thin sheet of high-density material obtained by hot pressing of the crushed wood fibers; In contrast, MDF, these pressing plates occurs at a higher pressure, that provides greater strength of these products at a relatively small plate thickness.

MDF Grades

Grade 1 is used in the production of doors and door moldings, furniture, semi-finished products for the furniture — facades, furniture moldings, countertops and wall panels. Its smooth and uniform surface perfectly amenable to milling, stained, thin lamination and other types of treatment. Due to its high resistance to moisture MDF used in the manufacture of kitchen furniture and bathroom furniture. Through processing, the hard sanding and quality control at all stages of production ensures quality MDF surface, which is an important factor in the production of furniture.

Application

MDF has been successfully used in the production of a carcass, kitchen and office furniture, non - standard furniture and in the production of commercial equipment. MDF is widely used for manufacturing of semi - finished furniture ( facades, moldings, countertops ). In construction are used as wall panels, ceiling and laminate flooring. At lower cost and with its ecological and quality properties MDF is similar to natural wood. This ensures its wide use in construction. MDF strength is ensured not only by the use of synthetic resins, but also by presence of natural binders in fiber interaction. Due to higher strength MDF supports furniture accessories much better than particleboard. Due to its high resistance to moisture MDF is used in the manufacture of kitchen and bathroom furniture. Under the influence of steam furniture made of MDF does not warp. 

One of the most important and distinctive advantages of MDF is the wide range of technical applications for this material. The surface of MDF is easy to handle, allows to make beautiful panels, rounded corners etc. MDF can be shaped into diverse forms, which broadens options of the manufacturers in furniture construction and design. Finally, due to low formaldehyde emissions MDF is environmentally very friendly material.

Application

The high physical and mechanical characteristics of plywood valued first all in construction. Due to longitudinal and transverse direction veneer fibers in the composition of the sheet is achieved increased strength of the finished products, which increases its durability, impact resistance and wear resistance, resistance to various loads.

Decking

Plywood is normally used only for the cladding, as bearing cage plywood formwork is often made of metal. Plywood formwork has lower thermal conductivity than metal, it is easier to mount the various elements of. Compared to wood or metal formwork, plywood — has less weight. It is especially advantageous to use a plywood formwork for curved surfaces. Lined with special phenolic films, plywood is particularly property on the surface wear resistance, resistance to corrosive environments, scratch and abrasion. ends Processing waterproof paint provides a barrier to moisture and keeps the ends of the no swelling in a wet environment, so you can use it in any weather conditions all year round

. For proper operation of laminated plywood, the amount of plate use cycles reaches 60–90 rpm, making it laminated plywood the most popular product in the shuttering systems for the construction. Laminated veneer produces smooth the surface of the concrete, which does not require additional plastering. The concrete surface after removal of the formwork according to the specifications requirements, without dark spots, with a uniform color and with a significant a decrease in the number of shells.

Scaffolding, ladders, catwalks, stage

Net cover plywood plate increases the coefficient of friction of the surface prevents slipping, thereby making the laminated plywood with net ideal material for the manufacture of floors of building forests. It is also successfully used for the construction of the formwork. Different formats of sheets you can optimize your the number of joints and fasteners, based on the surface area that is much facilitates installation work.
