MDF Board Melbourne
Our MDF Board Range & MDF Cut To Size
Medium Destiny Fibreboard (MDF), is a panel with uniform density, and a smooth surface. In saying this it can be machined, routed and drilled without the fear of chipping or splintering. The smooth surface also makes it an ideal product for painting.
MDF board 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.
Our MDF sheets are stocked in Melbourne in a range of thickness between 3mm to 32mm (see MDF Board Sizes), If you require obscure or custom sizes we can manufacture or cut to size. Moisture Resistant (MR) is stocked in common thicknesses.
All Medium Destiny Fibreboard that we sell and distribute in Melbourne is manufactured in Australia, so, therefore, meets the Australian Standard. It has a formaldehyde emission level of E0 (E zero), which is extremely low emission. This product is sourced from managed, renewable forest plantations.

MDF is consistently and primarily utilised for interior applications. Medium Density Fibreboard can be easily painted, cut, machined & ideally drilled for clean imprints without the risk of splintering or chipping. These beneficial qualities further confirm that an MDF panel is the ideal wood product for applications within indoor settings.
The ideal uses for MDF include:

Fire Retardant MDF
Fire Retardant MDF is a medium density fibreboard which is manufactured to achieve a group 1 fire rating AS/NZS 3837 – 1998. Suited to be used in the harshest of internal applications, it can also be veneered while retaining its group 1 rating. Known as a high-density material with a defined grainy surface and screwable core. It is an exceptional fire retardant property, especially after cutting, machining and sanding. Also, does not require special edge treatment to maintain it’s defining properties.
MDF Board FAQs
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.
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.
MDF is denser than particle board, which is made from wood chips, sawdust and glue. This make the Medium Destiny Fibreboard material a stronger product than particle board.
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.
No, it is not waterproof. It is not suitable for outdoor applications as it is prone to swelling, warping, and cracking when exposed to moisture.
MDF Medium Density Fiberboard is made from wood fibres, wax and resin. The wood fibres are broken down into small particles and mixed with wax and resin to form a homogenous material. The material is then heated and pressed into sheets of varying thicknesses. For more information about MDF board Melbourne, visit Cabinet Timbers today.
Yes, you can paint Medium Destiny Fibreboard. After all, it is a porous material and needs to be sealed with a primer before it can be painted. It is important to use the correct type of paint as oil-based paints can cause the material to swell.
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.
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.
