What is MDF?

Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product with a smooth surface and uniform density core.  MDF is made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, combining it with wax and a resin binder and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure.


In our standard MDF range we offer two different types of MDF; Moisture Resistant (MR) and Standard (STD).


If your searching for a treated MDF alternative, be sure to check out our: White Melamine MDF, High-Moisture Resistant White Melamine Satin MDF and our stunning Veneered MDF panels.
