Fire Rated Group 2 MDF


(ex GST)

Fire Rated MDF (FRMDF) is a high-density MDF with a fine sanded surface and a screwable core. It has excellent fire retardant properties and is certified to reach BCA Fire Hazard Group 2. FRMDF maintains its fire-retardant properties after cutting, machining and sanding, and does not require any special edge treatment to maintain these properties.
