Our Range of MDF Boards

MDF Boards

MDF Boards are a sheet material made by mixing wood fibres, waxes and resins then hot pressing it to the different thicknesses. Standard MDF can be used in a number of commercial and domestic settings, including being used as window frame wood.

Domestically it is used for bathroom and kitchen furniture and skirting and window boards. Standard MDF is intended for indoor use only, and oak veneered MDF is desired for its clean finish and load-bearing capabilities.

How is MDF made?

  • Standard MDF is pressed without grains or knots, providing a smooth face side, ready for paint, veneer or lamination.
  • This smooth surface also contributes to the ease of cutting, screwing and gluing of these particular boards, as well as being easy to clean and maintain.
  • These sheets are also incredibly environmentally friendly, with all of the wood fibres used in production being responsibly sourced.

Is MDF waterproof?

MDF is not a naturally waterproof material, but it can be treated to make it resistant to water damage.
