Characteristics Of MDF Substitute

1. Fronts, made of chipboard. Facades of laminated chipboard panels refer to the "economy class" and are made of sheet chipboard, melamine edge is bordered (paper) or ABC (plastic) or edge set of metal plates. The advantage of these types of facades is a low price and quite a large variety of colors and any size. Disadvantages – restrictions on the operating conditions (dry and warm room at a temperature of 10 to 40 C with relative humidity 65-80%), high water absorption, low thermal resistance, a necessary protection against prolonged exposure to sunlight. This type of facade almost never used.

Facades, which are laminated polymer film, called "softforming." Such fronts are available in different sizes in width and have several types of relief along the long side of the sheet. Disadvantages – the relatively low film strength, limited in size to the width, the need for additional processing of the ends of parts (ABC sticker or melamine edge or installation of metal plates). 2. Srednetsonovoy segment. MDF facades, covered with plastic PVC film, manufactured from MDF thickness of 16 or 19 mm, milled along the contour or surface to give a decorative appearance, if necessary, polished and covered with plastic PVC film. The advantage of this type of facade are the high decorative properties, giving the furniture a respectable "classical" form, low hygroscopicity, and the average price. Disadvantages include: restrictions on the operating conditions (room with outside air temperature of 10 to 30 C with a humidity of 65-80%), high sensitivity to temperature and hot air, insufficient mechanical strength of the coating.
