High Performance Wood Panel: MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME
Acetylated wood products feature a number of benefits over regular untreated products including enhanced dimensional stability and durability and fungal resistance. It is this outstanding performance that allows MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME to offer a guarantee of up to 50 years when used externally.
Although MEDITE MDF (in its various types) is widely used as a building material, it naturally has some shortcomings. Notably, dry wood is inclined to swell and shrink in response to changes in moisture in the atmosphere. Wood is also susceptible to degradation due to attack by microorganisms, like fungi, and is not therefore naturally durable.
These shortcomings have limited the use of solid wood and even MDF in some applications. Poor durability and dimensional stability will, for example, cause wood panels to crack and delaminate over time.
The good news is that MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME has been demonstrated to have superior dimensional stability and durability, even in changing weather conditions, meaning it may now be used in situations and applications where normal MDF panels cannot.
