The distinction between MDF and Plywood
A common question, particularly among first-time buyers, is what difference exists between plywood and MDF. The two are easily mistaken, and some builders may use one instead of the other. Firstly, MDF undergoes high pressure and temperature treatment, leaving it without any voids. Because MDF is made by binding minute wood pieces, the sheets don’t have a wood grain. When buying plywood, you have the option of long or cross grain.
MDF is cheaper than plywood because it is an engineered wood composite while the later comes from wood veneers. Because plywood uses different wood species like birch, oak and pine, the higher the grade, the more expensive it is. The construction of plywood makes it a sturdier building material than MDF, which is why it can be used on subfloors.
