Cut-to-size FINSA MDF Water-resistant Technical Matt White panels

There are several manufacturers of melaminated board material, or board material with a melaminated top layer. FINSA is one of them. FINSA offers a wide range of high-quality furniture panels that can be used for kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms, among others.

MDF Water-resistant Technical Matt White: what is that?

Furniture panel is sheet material with a strong, finished top layer, in this case with a reinforced melamine top layer. Furniture panels are widely used in the furniture industry and are gaining ground due to their versatile textures, colours and topcoat options. The advantage of melamine-laminated panels, compared to veneered panels, is that they are immediately ready for use: there is no need to finish them! This makes the product ideal for use.

Melamine is produced in different ways. For example, a melamine top layer can consist of a veneer layer of paper fibres fused together with a melamine resin. This creates a hard plastic top layer. Other production methods include the use of acrylic lacquers combined with a curing technique. A furniture panel derives its properties from the combination of top layer with its backing. More on this below.

Melamine top layer

Furniture panels have a strong and hard melamine top layer, which gives the wood panels an attractive appearance and makes the wood resistant. The melamine top layer has a high density, which also gives it its hard and strong properties. A melamine top layer is water-repellent, easy to wipe off with a cloth and to some extent heat-resistant. Properties that are very pleasant for any interior application! Some manufacturers process the melamine layer with heat and chemicals to increase the scratch-resistant properties, for example. This makes one panel suitable for intensive use and another not.

In brief, the advantages of melamine faced board material once again:

  • Ready to use immediately
  • Strong and water-repellent
  • Fixed colour
  • Wide range of colours and textures
  • Depending on the product line, suitable for intensive or horizontal use

Melamine top layer with Technical Matt properties

MDF Water-resistant Technical Matt White has a topcoat of Technical Matt. Technical Matt is a brand name of FINSA under which melamine topcoats fall. Technical Matt is distinguished from other melamine layers by the way it is produced. Processing acrylic lacquers with a patented Electon Beam Curing technique gives the material a range of very practical properties. For instance, it is velvety soft and impervious to finger marks. Combined with a high resistance to heat and scratches, it is a highly suitable material for intensive use. In many ways, thanks to its comfortable touch, scratch resistance and Uv-resistance, it is also reminiscent of the well-known Fenix material. 

Its antibacterial properties make it a very suitable surface for food contact. The material is also easy to maintain as the surface is resistant to mild detergents. Thus, the rock-solid properties and soft appearance of MDF Water-resistant Technical Matt White make this material a high-quality product. So from now on, order a luxurious and durable upgrade for your kitchen or living room, for example, at the THE online sawmill.

A carrier of MDF Water-resistant is used for this board. MDF Water-resistant is a versatile board suitable for various interior panelling applications where the room is humid, such as in the bathroom and kitchen. It is also known as MDF V313. The V313 characteristic comes from the test for water resistance that the board material undergoes, called V313. It indicates that the board is not only Water-resistant, but also water- and mould-resistant. Note that the board is not waterproof! Water-resistant MDF boards are composed of dried wood fibres and glue. These wood fibres are then compressed under high pressure and temperatures to form an MDF board. In the case of Water-resistant MDF, a special, Water-resistant type of glue is used.

The combination of MDF Water-resistant V313 and the Technical Matt top layer make this material very suitable for surfaces in and around sanitary areas. For example, you can think of kitchen worktops, especially around the sink. But also panelling for toilets and bathrooms such as bathroom cabinets, medicine cabinets or wall cladding in damp rooms.

Machining Water-resistant melamine or HPL furniture panel

The great advantage of MDF Water-resistant V313 with a melaminated top layer or HPL variant, is that it is ready to use immediately. Furniture panel is good and relatively easy to assemble provided you are well prepared. Although MDF is a very workable material, the challenge lies in the melamine top layer. While assembling the panel, it is advisable to screw the screws at the back or bottom (be careful not to go through the material!). That way, the screw holes are not visible and you avoid visible splinters from the melamine. 

Are you going to mount on the visible side? Then first place painter's tape on the place where you will be working on the board. This way, the tape will catch the first contact between the tool and the board and reduce the risk of splintering.  Make sure you have the right drills and attachments. In general, you use the same tools for HPL as for working hardwood. Special HPL drills are also available. Make sure you are well informed before working with HPL. Although HPL is stronger than melamine, it can still be damaged if heavy tools bounce off it.

Specific applications of MDF Water-resistant V313 furniture panels

Furniture panel is also called melaminated or decorative board material. It is widely used for making furniture and, with the right carrier and top layer, also for worktops. Thanks to its Water-resistant backing, the board is more widely usable than versions without Water-resistant backing. The melamine top layers of furniture panels also have their own unique properties from one manufacturer to another. Technical Matt from FINSA, with its antibacterial, water and heat-resistant properties, is very suitable for intensive use in kitchens and bathrooms.

Combining its luxurious look with a backing of Water-resistant MDF makes the material the right choice for your bathroom or kitchen. Furniture, decors and wall coverings often have a large surface area and therefore take a long time to finish. By using melamine-coated board material, you no longer need to paint the board material and ensure that everything looks sleek.
