What Is MDF?

MDF stands for Medium Density Fibreboard and is an engineered wood product made of softwood fibres glued together under high pressure and heat. Medium Density Fibreboard, also known as MDF, is smooth, machinable and features no knots. The lighter, the density and the less material pressed into the board results in the variants of ultra light, light and standard. This means the panel is lighter the less dense but also absorbs more paint. On top of our large range of MDF boards, we also have a nice selection of Veneered MDF.

As MDF suppliers, we ensure our medium fibre board products are eco-friendly, finely engineered and non-warping. The product has a homogeneous surface which results in a very smooth paint surface.

Why Use MDF instead of Plywood or Chipboard?

Medium Density Fibreboard has several advantages over plywood or chipboard. Firstly, MDF is dense, flat, with no knots and is machined easily. It does not feature a distinctive surface grain since it is comprised of fine particles. It can also be cut, drilled, machined or filed without incurring any damage to the surface, since it does not contain any grain. It is possible to glue MDF together, using PVA wood glue. In addition, it is possible to use oil, water-based paints and varnishes on MDF. For finishing purposes, it is possible to use veneers and laminates.
