General Purpose MDO Overlays


Paneltech’s General Purpose MDO is paintable and durable which allows these products to cover a wide variety of market needs.

Originally developed for sign painting and concrete formwork industries, MDO is also used for other applications as a paintable surface. Paint finishes on MDO are up to three times more durable than the same finish applied to ordinary plywood.

Here are some examples of existing uses:

• Signs • Siding • Color accent panels • Gable Ends • Garage Doors • Cabinets and built-ins • Marine Bulk heads, decks, cabins, hatch covers • Chimney enclosures • Fruit and vegetable bins • Transportation Sidewalls • Privacy Screens • Cupolas • Farm Buildings, farm equipment • Fertilizer Bins • Soffits and fascia • Painted exterior structures • Other applications requiring a paintable surface with good moisture resistance.
