FORESCOLOR is a range of coloured and textured engineered coloured MDF boards. The organic pigment is integrated directly into its wood fibres, which creates a consistent colour distribution throughout the entire board. This enhances durability and ensures each board maintains its appearance in tough environments where laminates and painted surfaces may show scratches and chips.

Key Features

Solid colour throughout the board. UV and artificial light resistant

Formaldehyde emissions rated to E0. (Rated NAF on Request)

Hard and durable, ideal for high traffic areas

Moisture resistant due to high melamine content

Colour Range

FORESCOLOR is available in nine designer colours that can be used in the plain format as supplied or simply applying a coat of gloss to achieve a semi or gloss finish will deeply enhance the colours.

Sheet Size: 1220mm x 2440mm.

Thickness: 9mm & 18mm. 12mm is available in Black only. 5mm is available on indent basis only subject to minimum order quantity and lead time.


Each fibre in FORESCOLOR is individually dyed. Variations in colour tone or hue may occur in the production process as individual wood fibres will absorb varying amounts of dye. Some colours are more susceptible to variations in colour tone. Panels should be selected from the same batch of the same thickness. To ensure a suitable colour toning is achieved care should be taken when blending different thicknesses on a project. We recommend all surfaces have a suitable coating system to protect them against marking and provide optimum performance. All orders should be purchased for one consignment. Panel colour is to be checked and blended prior to installation. Discuss your FORESCOLOR project scope and requirements with PORTA to ensure the best outcome.

Laminated and Routed Designs

FORESCOLOR Coloured MDF allows you to create depth and colour variation by laminating various coloured boards together and applying CNC routed patterns producing striking 3D coloured panels.
