MDF Window Board
Medium Density Fibreboard Explained
MDF as it’s known is a materiel made from composite wood. The construction involves the use of small wooden fibres that are glued together with a resin under extreme levels of pressure and heat. It is much lighter than solid wood and is a great way to be friendly to the environment as it avoids waist.
The three stages of production
- Chip Production – After being cut the trees are debarked. The debarked logs go through a chipping process. They are then washed and go through a quality check.
- Fibre Production – In comparison to alternative types of fibre boards available on the market, MDF is defined by the methods used when processing the fibres which are handled individually and a dry process as opposed to a wet process is used during manufacture. Then the chips are compacted into little plugs using what’s known as a screw feeder, then they’re heated for 30-120 seconds and then fed into a defibrillator which separates the fibres.
- Sheet Forming – The dry fibre now goes into the top part of a ‘pendister’ using a sucking process and this evenly distributes fibres into an even mat below it, which is usually 230-620 mm thick. This mat is now pre-compressed and then either sent directly to a hot press that runs continuously or a multi-opening hot press is used where it’s cut into larger sheets. By doing this the bonding resin is activated and it also sets the density profile and strength. This process is done in stages in order to increase strength and give the product greater longevity.
