Ultra-Light Premium Prime Fiberboard Mouldings

Ultra-Light’s Premium Prime process provides a better surface for applying finish coats, resulting in a high quality finished product. Solvent and water-based paint systems are compatible with extrusion priming and offer excellent adhesion properties. The extrusion technology is an industrial version of the substrate preparation process transfers to the primed millwork market, characteristics of the high quality finish demanded in the picture frame industry.

Ultra-Light’s Premium Prime is a high solid content, water-based primer that has the consistency of putty or wood filler when applied. Latex paints will “liquefy” the top surface of the primer and allow the topcoat to create a chemical bond with the primer.

The Extrusion Process Extrusion technology offers a significant quality increase from traditional paint-based priming systems. This process provides a better surface for applying finish coats, resulting in a higher quality finished product. Solvent and water-based paint systems are compatible with extrusion priming and offer excellent adhesion properties. Machining and sanding are performed easily on the extruded primer. This extrusion process transfers to the primed millwork market the characteristics of the high quality pre-finish demanded in the picture frame industry.

  • 33% lighter in weight as compared to MDF mouldings, allowing for easier handling
  • State-of-the-art extruded priming process require less prep-work and sanding, resulting in a high quality finished product
  • Mouldings are dimensionally stable, which resist cupping, twisting, or chipping as found with many other light fiberboard mouldings
  • Wide selection of architectural profiles to choose from
  • Nails without volcanos or raised dimples

ULTRA-LIGHT

  • 100% Radiata Pine fiber.
  • Engineered for machining.
  • Miters, cuts, and copes cleaner than pine.

mGH SOLID CONTENT, WATER-BASED PRIMER

  • Primer has the consistency of putty or wood filler when applied.
  • Premium Prime surface requires less prep-work and sanding.

WAREHOUSE STORAGE

  • Bundles can stand upright in properly angled and reinforced racks.
  • Flat storage units should be evenly supported.

JOB SITE STORAGE

  • Lay flat, indoors, on evenly spaced sticks.

INSTALLATION RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Carbide finish blades and tooling.
  • 16-18 gauge finish nails.
  • Compressor setting between 60-80 PSI.

SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Wear a dust mask to minimize wood dust particle effects.

FINISHING RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Putty – Solvent based (spot prime area if using latex paints).
  • Caulk – Slow dry acrylic latex. Caulk along edges of millwork where required.
  • Paint – Any high quality oil-based or acrylic latex paint may be used.
