Medium-density fiberboard (MDF) is comprised of approximately 90% fine wood fibers, which are mainly obtained from conifers. The wood fibers are pressed together with glue under high pressure at about 200°C so that a robust, isotropic wood material with a smooth, dense surface is formed. MDF is significantly more resistant than chipboard, but, at the same time, you should pay attention to the relatively high weight (bulk density up to 750 kg/m³).
MDF is mainly used in furniture and interior design. Frequently, speakers are also made of MDF. You should only use MDF indoors because it swells up when it comes into contact with moisture. Our MDF boards are assigned to emission class E1.
MDF works well with all woodworking tools and is easy to mill. Due to the high density of the material, however, tools wear out faster than when working with solid wood. Therefore, we recommend carbide-tipped tools. MDF can be glued with all wood glues and is easy to paint (prime if necessary). You should avoid screw connections that are close to the edge, as these can easily break out of the board.
