Forescolor MDF

FORESCOLOR is a new range of coloured and textured MDF boards now available in Australia, exclusive to Porta. FORESCOLOR is an engineered coloured board that has organic pigment integrated directly into its wood fibres which creates a consistent colour distribution throughout the entire board. This enhances durability and maintains its appearance in tough environments where laminates and painted surfaces show scratches and chips.
