MEG (Material Exterior Grade) is a decorative, high-pressure laminate for exterior use, made up of layers of cellulose fibre impregnated with thermo-hardening phenolic resins and one or more surface layers of decorative paper impregnated with especially weather-resistant thermo-hardening resins. Strong, dense and hard-wearing, MEG has been specifically designed for exterior applications.
The particular denseness of MEG ensures an excellent combination of mechanical characteristics such as resistance to bending and blows. The evenness and high density of the panels ensures high resistance to the extraction of fixing elements. MEG is used mainly for cladding façades (usually ventilated ones) and balconies, as well as making brise-soleil, street furniture and outdoor signage. In the photo: a residential building made up of private apartments in Bra (CN) that uses as a cladding MEG Wood (in the 604 Colony pattern) for all the external parts, except for the area of balcony that is made with Externa, a high-pressure laminate of superior quality. The Externa panels for balconies combine aesthetics with functionality, are highly resistant and do not require maintenance.
