User Guide

Vario MDF Board is supplied with a protective film that should not be removed until the project is complete. After removal of the film, the surface is ready for daily use. No additional polishing is necessary.

Best results for machining Vario PET coated MDF boards will be achieved by using a scoring blade and moderate feed rates.

Excessive curvature can be minimized by avoiding long narrow panels and by ensuring adequate hinging and fixing support is provided.


  • Adequate fixing should be provided at no greater than 500mm centers.
  • We recommend an air gap of 6mm adjacent to ovens and other heat sources.
  • Do NOT over tighten handles as it may cause an unsightly dip in the high gloss surface.
  • Ensure that the masking film is cut cleanly. No masking strands should be there as failure to correct the process would make the edge banding process more difficult and time consuming.

Hinge Recommendation:

  • Always test hinge boring tools to ensure a clean cut is achieved.
  • Reliable results will be achieved by drilling or boring through a thin MDF sacrificial block.
