Medium density fibreboard


Medium Density Fibreboard, commonly referred to as MDF, is an engineered material created by recycling discarded hardwood or softwood. These materials are ground down into fine particles, mixed with wax and a resin binder, then heat and pressure treated to create the sheet material we know as MDF.


The surface of MDF is hard, flat and smooth. One advantage of MDP is that it’s a uniform material, it doesn’t have the knots or other blemishes that natural wood has. However, if you are looking for a very strong material, plywood is a better option.

What MDF is used for

MDF is ideal for indoor use and is perfect for making furniture. The smooth surface makes it the ideal choice if you want to add moulding, paint it or use it as shelving. Because of its structure, MDF is very versatile in the way it can be manipulated and is ideal for cutting, machining and drilling without splinters or chipping occuring.

MDF can also be used successfully for creating doors, skirting boards and internal paneling. Often, furniture that is made from MDF has a thin layer of real wood, known as a veneer, adhered to any visible sides and edges to give the illusion of a real-wood piece.
