MDF panels

MDF panels представляют собой листовой материал, выполненный посредством сухого горячего прессования древесной стружки. Волокна связываются экологическим лигнином, получаемым из древесины. Материал легко фрезеруется, шлифуется, склеивается, сверлится и монтируется. Поверх может выполняться декоративная вырезка и выпиливание всевозможных узоров. Наиболее популяны реечные панели МДФ благодаря бесхитростности монтажа: на одном боку находится гребень, на другом – паз. Плиточная разновидность напоминает кафельную плитку крупных размеров (монтаж аналогичен предыдущему). Листовые панели могут иметь неодинаковые габариты и декорирование. Лицевая поверхность может быть: шпонированной – текстура и цвет выполнены «под древесину»; ламинированной – с нанесением поливинилхлоридной пленки различных оттенков, картинок, текстуры. Также декорирование можно оформлять посредством модной фотопечати: изображение с фотографии покрывается водоотталкивающим лаком на акриловой базе. Не менее востребованы MDF panels с эффектом 3D, поверхность которых выполнена в виде волн, объемных фигур, рельефа. Материал также может быть обработан специальными красками с перламутром либо серебром.

A rock

Facing with a decorative stone is expensive, requires the involvement of professional handlers in the process.
