MDF Boards That Set the Standard

Our MDF in Melbourne is constructed by gluing together extremely fine wood dust fibres using resin and then heating and compressing the board. After the boards have dried, they are cut into the required shapes and lengths. This resulting smooth material of wood panels is also known to be a slightly stronger application than particle board.

MDF is extremely useful in constructing cabinets because its woodwork is affordable and it comes in all shapes and sizes. Moreover, the material also lacks natural defects, which makes cabinets made out of the product very durable. Melamine is used to cover the MDF board, which makes it look even more aesthetically pleasing. Another benefit is that it’s cost-effective, which is precisely why it is so popular too and it can be easily machined.

MDF Board FAQs

How is MDF different from plywood?

MDF is more stable than plywood because it is less prone to warping, cupping, and cracking. It is also lighter than plywood, making it easier to handle and transport. However, it is not as strong as plywood and is not suitable for outdoor applications.

In how many sizes are the MDF Sheets available?

MDF sheets are available in a variety of sizes, ranging from 2440mm x 1220mm to 3660mm x 1830mm. The thickness of our sheets can range from 3mm to 44mm. View our Medium Density Fibreboard sheets at Cabinet Timbers today.

How is Medium Density Fiberboard different from a Particle Board?

MDF is denser than particle board, which is made from wood chips, sawdust and glue. This make the Medium Density Fibreboard material a stronger product than particle board.

Can I use MDF wood for Panelling & Walls?

Yes, MDF wood is suitable for panelling and walls. It is easy to install and provides a smooth, seamless finish. It is known to be a cost-effective option for wall panelling, as it is less expensive than other materials.

Can you seal MDF for outdoor use?

No, it cannot be sealed for outdoor use. MDF is prone to swelling, warping, and cracking when exposed to moisture, and is therefore not suitable for outdoor applications.

How to paint MDF board?

Similar to painting plywood, to paint MDF board, you will need to first prepare the surface. Begin by sanding the board with fine-grit sandpaper to remove any excess dust and smooth out the surface. Next, apply a coat of primer and allow it to dry. Once dry, apply two coats of paint, allowing each coat to dry completely before applying the next. Finally, apply a clear sealer to protect the finish. For more information, ask one of our friendly representatives at Cabinet Timbers today.
