Medite® II is a sustainable medium density fiberboard (MDF) panel utilizing a formaldehyde-free adhesive system and pre-consumer recycled wood fiber. Medite® II is engineered for non structural applications and can be used in place of sanded plywood and solid wood for applications where higher physical properties than standard MDF are needed. This panel provides the flexibility of a superior composite panel with the emissions of lumber and other grain wood products. Medite® II has been specified in hundreds of commercial, institutional and conservator projects since the 1980’s.
