Transportation and handling

  • The pallets must be transported with forklifts or similar equipment, to avoid damaging of edges of sheets;
  • The floor of the body of the transporting truck must be clean, dry, even and without nails and screws sticking out or with overlapping boards, Eucatex sheets must be protected with waterproof tarpaulin;
  • The stacks must be blocked and supported by fastening ropes or flat cables. The areas  of the sheets which are under pressure from these ropes/cables should also be protected by angle plate or plastic wedges;
  • Sheets must be handled carefully to avoid being dragged or undergoing any type of friction in the unloading.

Storage

  • Product must be kept in its original packaging, in a moisture free place, ventilated and protected from the action of the sun and rain;
  • Sheets must be stacked horizontally, on a flat and level platform. Avoid stacking sheets of different dimensions;
  • The maximum stacking allowed is 6 meters high;
  • Avoid contact of sheets with products which may alter their natural features, such as grease, oil and cement. It is also advisable not to place hard objects on the sheets, such as metals, concrete and wood.

Maintenance and Cleaning

  • Eucatex hardboard should be cleaned with a soft, dry cloth or one slightly moistened with water and neutral soap;
  • Do not use abrasive products, such as soap, steel sponges, etc.

Advantages

  • Excellent versatility for manufacturing furniture;
  • May be easily coated;
  • Excellent mechanical resistance;
  • It can be easily perforated, drilled, bored, grooved cut to size, bent and glued.
