What are the panels made of?
Indoors: 3D wall panels interior panels are made from Australian made E0 moisture resistant (MR) medium density fibreboard (MDF) with a white melamine back and a raw face, ready for painting (by yourself or us).
We use Laminex® Lamiwood E0 from their Greenfirst™ range; an environmentally preferable option for interior spaces or Borgs 18mm polymer board for outdoor spaces. All fibre sources originate from plantation forests of Australia with the vast majority being from softwood plantation and sawmill residue. The polymer boards are waterpprfo, light weight, self extinguishing, mould and pest resistant. Materials are subject to availability.
Outdoors: 18mm polymer is waterproof, light weight, self extinguishing, mould and pest resistant. These panels are supplied in a raw finish ready for painting in a variety of acrylic or oil based paints after installation as this material is flexible. The best results are achieved by the use of a suitable primer prior to finishing. A textured or sandstone type of paint may be applied if you wish to avoid sanding the panels. Otherwise a 180-220 grade of sand paper is recommended. To reduce the possibility of warping, paint should be applied to all sides of the panel. The material may expand and contract slightly in a way similar to timber.
What finishes are available on the panels?
Both indoor and outdoor panels can be supplied in a raw finish, ready to be installed, primed and painted by yourself or your painter. Indoor panels can also be supplied in a primed finish or complete in a polyurethane painted finish.
