Overview Specifications Sustainability

Medite FRRoseburg flame retardant Medite® FR is made with a formaldehyde free adhesive system and is designed for critical applications where Class 1 flame retardant material is required. Medite® FR has a low flame spread and smoke development as well as extremely low VOC emissions. During the manufacturing process, the flame retardant additive is blended with the fiber throughout the panel. This process delivers superior performance versus topical flame retardant applications. In addition, Medite® FR can be machined, cut, sanded, and grooved without compromising the flame retardant properties.

Medite FR® is a sustainable Class 1 flame retardant medium density fiberboard (MDF) panel manufactured from pre-consumer recycled wood, meeting the most stringent formaldehyde emission standards in the world. Roseburg’s patented manufacturing process utilizes a synthetic resin system to produce Medite FR®. During processing an additive is blended with the fibers to provide flame-retardant properties throughout the board. Unlike surface topical flame retardant coatings, the flame retardant properties of Medite FR® aren’t compromised when the panel is machined or sanded. Medite FR® is the ideal product for interior applications that require a certified Class 1 product and where certain indoor air quality requirements are specified.
