ECOEDGE MDF MOULDINGS AND JAMBS

ECOEDGE mouldings and jambs are made from premium moisture resistant MDF manufactured here in New Zealand and are the largest primed range in the country.
Produced from FSCĀ® (Forestry Stewardship Council) certified timber, ECOEDGE MDF offers discerning specifiers, builders, and homeowners an environmentally sound choice when building or renovating.

Applications

ECOEDGE MDF mouldings and jambs are designed for interior use only. They should not be used in situations where they will be exposed to water, prolonged humidity or high temperatures, e.g. showers, saunas, bathrooms and laundries. When ECOEDGE MDF mouldings are to be used in direct contact with concrete or masonry, a damp-proof course must be used.

Storage and conditioning

All ECOEDGE MDF products both raw and pre-painted must be stored in a dry place protected from moisture, direct sunlight and excessive heat. In addition, mouldings should be acclimatised to their surrounding environment for at least 48 hours prior to installation.

Fixing

Mouldings can be nailed, glued or installed using a combination of both nails and adhesives.
Nailing: For 12mm thick profiles, fix using 40-50mm brads or panel pins. For 18mm thick profiles, fix using 60mm brads or panel pins.
Adhesive: Mouldings can be glued using most commercial brands of adhesive.
All joints should be mitre cut and glued during installation. For best results we recommend mouldings are installed using a combination of nailing and gluing.

Finishing and Painting

Un-painted Mouldings

  1. Fill nail holes and any indentations with an interior filler and lightly sand smooth.
  2. Apply one coat of acrylic interior sealer or acrylic interior undercoat, allow to dry and sand smooth as required.
  3. Apply 2-3 coats of premium water-based enamel, lightly sanding after the first coat if required.

NOTE: Always follow the paint manufacturers instructions on the paint container.

Painted Mouldings

  1. Fill nail holes and indentations with an acrylic interior filler and lightly sand smooth.
  2. Check the machine applied coating is smooth and even, lightly sand as required, and spot prime any bare areas.
  3. Apply two coats of premium water based enamel lightly sanding between coats if required.

NOTE: Always follow the paint manufacturers instructions on the paint container.

Health and Safety

ECOEDGE mouldings and jambs are manufactured from Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF), a reconstituted wood product containing wood, resin, and wax. ECOEDGE MDF mouldings and jambs should be handled in accordance with recognised safe work practices.
