Usage Notes: Some laminates applied to TRUPAN FR or VESTA FR MDF may change the flame spread rating. Standard available woodworking glues have been successfully used in lamination. However, some adhesives may have compatibility problems with the chemical system used to manufacture TRUPAN FR or VESTA FR MDF. Any adhesive should be tested for compatibility with the chemical system in TRUPAN FR or VESTA FR MDF prior to full-scale gluing. Questions should be directed to the glue supplier. When using TRUPAN FR or VESTA FR MDF in wall systems, an integral vapor barrier must be a properly installed component of the wall in any of the following conditions: the wall has an exterior side and the wall separates spaces conditioned unequally. Joints between panels to be designed to accommodate movement of up to .40 percent. Splined or articulated joints for reveals per AWI Section 500, 500A-G-4 “Joints and Transitions” or similar is suggested. Wood veneers and other laminates should be tested for compatibility with TRUPAN FR or VESTA FR MDF prior to use. Some wood veneers, laminates, and other types of products may have reactions to surface coatings and finishes, glues, pressing temperatures, moisture, contaminates, the chemical systems used to manufacture FR MDF products, the failure to use UV inhibitors, or due to other causes. Reactions may include discoloration to veneer or laminate. ARAUCO is not responsible for discoloration or for claims associated with discoloration.
