MDF is composted of wood-mill by products, primarily sawdust and wood shavings, which are ground into a fine powder, dried to remove moisture, and then mixed with resins and wax before being pressed into flat, hard panels.
The benefits include:
– MDF is very hard and dense, perfectly flat, and extremely resistant to warping.
– It’s also relatively inexpensive.
– It has two super-smooth surfaces (front and back) that provide a near-perfect substrate for painting.
– Because MDF is composed of wood byproducts, you can cut, rout and drill it using standard woodworking tools.
MDF is used for:
– Fire Resistance
– Vapour Repulsion
