MEDITE TRICOYA EXTREME (MTX) is a weather resistant MDF from MEDITE SMARTPLY.
This year, MEDITE SMARTPLY will be bringing MTX to Futurescape 2018, the leading UK landscape event. Find the company at stand B1 at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, on Tuesday 20 November 2018.
In a recent test of the uses of MTX, MEDITE SMARTPLY teamed up with Bakers Timber Buildings. This was to supply materials for their high-end, custom-made garden rooms. These outdoor spaces are usable year-round thanks to their insulation and durability gained from MTX. Another MEDITE solution, MEDITE MR was also used.
Bakers Timber Buildings discovered MTX after using MEDITE MR, a moisture resistant MDF. This was for internal walls and ceilings of their executive garden rooms. After testing MTX as an external product, the company began using it for cladding and trims on their buildings.
Creating such high-quality timber buildings in the outdoors presents challenges. Shifts in temperature and moisture require timber materials to have high core strength and durability. Achieving a quality finish requires materials with great machining qualities and a smooth surface finish.
MTX helps maintain the integrity of the buildings, which are subject to seasonal changes. For external cladding, MTX gives a protection against harsh weather, for up to 50 years.
The design and machining flexibility of MTX and its smooth surface texture were key reasons for its specification.
Martin, managing director of Bakers Timber Buildings said:
“Painted timber will look rustic very quickly. When looking for products to paint, MTX was an obvious choice. It gave us peace of mind in terms of weather resistance.
“MTX carries a guarantee of durability that I can pass on to my clients with confidence. It allows us to offer a 10-year guarantee on our buildings with almost no maintenance.”
“The MTX panels are very impressive. How well they machine, paint and stand up to weather and moisture variation outdoors. It was an added bonus as well that all MEDITE panels are from sustainable FSC certified forests. This means that the products align with our company’s sustainability policy.”
