MEDITE CLEAR and MEDITE FR CLEAR are MDF panels with zero-added formaldehyde, developed specifically for use in environmentally sensitive interior applications where the off-gassing of formaldehyde needs to be at an absolute minimum.

Although formaldehyde is found naturally in wood - and no wood product can be entirely formaldehyde free - independent tests have shown that the formaldehyde content of MEDITE CLEAR and MEDITE FR CLEAR are less than 1.0mg/100g, equivalent to or less than natural wood.

“With wellness being a key concern in the construction industry, we are leading the way in the development of technically advanced timber products that offer architects, specifiers and contractors alike a new way to contribute to healthy, sustainable construction and to increase their projects BREEAM or LEED rating,” comments Richard Allen, Sales Director at MEDITE SMARTPLY.

“These are the lowest formaldehyde panels we have ever produced. Alongside our range of zero-added formaldehyde SMARTPLY products, MEDITE CLEAR and MEDITE FR CLEAR set a new standard for wellness when it comes to wood panel products.

"The fact that we’ve also created a flame-retardant version, which opens up even more possibilities for its use, is credit to the constant research and development we undertake at the company.”

Zero formaldehyde is added to the softwood fibres in the manufacture of MEDITE CLEAR and MEDITE FR CLEAR. The resulting product far exceeds the rigid Class E1 (EN 622-1) low formaldehyde standard.

MEDITE CLEAR and MEDITE FR CLEAR can be produced in a range of panel sizes and thicknesses (1220mm x 2440mm). Please choose from the panel sizes and thickness tab; other specifications are available on request.
