Neatflex Product Specification

PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICSNeatflex
Neatflex has a 4mm (5/32") S - Grade Birch plywood face bonded to a 15mm MDF Lite platform.  It comes in 1220 (48") x 2440mm (96") Cross Cut / Cross Grain sheets with un-grooved border edges, approximately 40mm wide on the two edges running parallel with the grooves.

BENDING CAPABILITIES
The typical minimum bending radius obtainable using Neatflex is 300mm (12").  If a tighter radius is required it is best to use Neatform Bendy MDF which has a minimum bending radius of 150mm (6").  Bending capabilities of Neatform and Neatflex may vary with the moisture content and temperature and, because it is manufactured from natural raw materials, it may vary slightly from one batch to another.

WATER & FIRE RESISTANCE
Neatflex is not made from fire resistant MDF nor is it recommended for wet applications.

TEMPERATURE CONDITIONING
Neatflex should be acclimatised the same as the surfacing material, adhesives, paints or lacquers to be used.

COLD CONDITIONS
The bending characteristics of Neatflex and other materials such as laminate vary with temperature.  Care must be taken, especially in cool conditions, that the materials do not become to brittle to work with. Neatflex

SURFACING
Because of the wood grain face, laying up with veneer prior to bending is not recommended.

HANDLING
Care should taken when handling Neatflex.  The size, weight and flexibility of a full sheet will generally require two people to ensure that the material is not over-flexed or broken.

STORAGE
Neatflex should be stored flat in such a way that both surfaces are protected.  Store in a dry area and avoid direct contact with the floor.
