Medium density fibreboard & high density fibreboard
Smooth, resistant, consistent, environmentally friendly
Medium density fibreboard (MDF) is a versatile wood-based panel with good machinability. MDF has a consistent structure and density and a very smooth surface. This makes it suitable for routed, lacquered and painted finishes.
The MDF production process involves grinding wood chips into fibres and binding them with synthetic resin under heat and pressure. MDF is used mainly for the furniture industry, skirting boards, architraves, packaging material, in the door industry and in everything from book covers to shoes.
High density fibreboard (HDF) contains more wood fibre per cubic metre than MDF board. HDF is used mainly as the core material for laminate flooring.
