Our Range of Standard MDF

Standard MDF at Builders Marketplace

Standard MDF is a material that has been used in construction, manufacturing and domestic settings for decades due to its durable and smooth finish.

MDF is an engineered wood composite containing lignin, waxes and resins. It’s a cost-effective alternative to solid wood, and its uniformity makes it ideal for applications where precision cuts are needed. The standard thickness of MDF boards ranges from 3mm to 25mm.

Frequently Asked Questions

How thick is a standard sheet of MDF?

The answer depends on the manufacturer and the specific product being used, but generally speaking a standard sheet of MDF will range in thickness anywhere from 3mm to 25mm. The thickness of standard MDF also varies depending on its intended purpose, with thinner sheets for lighter duty applications such as interior trim boards or cabinets facing and thicker sheets for heavier duty jobs like countertops or shelving support structures.

Can you screw into MDF?

This depends on the thickness and type of MDF being used, but when drilling screws into standard MDF, pre-drilling a pilot hole is recommended to minimise splitting. The size of your bit should be slightly smaller than your screw shank diameter so that the threads can reach into fresh wood when inserted. This will provide better hold and prevent the wood from splitting as much as possible.
