MEG is a self-supporting high pressure laminate (HPL ) with a decorative surface that is suitable for
exteriors. It is fade resistant and weather-proof and complies with standard EN 438:2005 Part 6.
It is entirely made up of layers of phenolic resinimpregnated cellulose fibres with one or more decorative surface layers of cellulose fibres impregnated with thermosetting resins.
The manufacturing process involves the combined application of heat (150 °C) and high pressure (9 MPa) in multi-daylight presses in which resin polycondensation takes place. One or both sides can be decorative. It can be supplied as standard (MEG) or flame retardant (MEG F1) versions, the latter has flame retardant additives mixed with the phenolic resins.
The specifications for MEG for tenders are set out below:
Compact, self-supporting high pressure laminate (HPL ) for exteriors, ABET LAMINATI MEG, made up of layers of cellulose fibres impregnated with thermosetting phenolic resins with one or two surface layers of decorative paper impregnated with thermosetting resins bonded together by high pressure with special protection against inclement weather in compliancewith standards EN 438:2005 – Part 6
