MEG is a construction product that is ideal for architecture and comprises a rigid core combined with a decorative surface consisting of weather-resistant thermosetting resins. Solid, compact and long-lasting, MEG is specifically designed for outdoor application; it is resistant to natural weathering (sunlight and atmospheric agents) providing technical performances that make it suitable to the building sector, where it represents an excellent alternative to traditional materials.
MEG is mainly used for cladding façades (typically rainscreens) and balconies, as well as for sunscreens, street furniture and outdoor signage.
MEG is a high-pressure decorative laminate for external applications, consisting of layers of cellulose fibres impregnated with thermosetting phenolic resins and of one or more surface layers of decorative paper impregnated with thermosetting resins having a special weather protection, all chemically bonded together by a high pressure process as described in the EN 438:2005 – 6 standard.
Fluctuations in temperature and relative humidity do not affect the physical and mechanical properties of MEG.
Before use, it is recommended to store the panels in a well-supported and ventilated position in order to allow acclimatisation and prevent any deformation.
The particular compactness of MEG ensures an optimal combination of mechanical characteristics such as flexural and tensile strength, compression and impact resistance. The homogeneity and high density of the panels provides high resistance to extraction of the fastening elements.
A high percentage of the raw materials used for the production of MEG comes from renewable sources.
MEG is available in a wide range of decors and can be customised thanks to digital printing technique that allows you to create a resistant wall cladding with a “customised skin”, which can also be implemented based on your drawing (graphic perspective) or photograph.
