Medium-density Fiberboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibers, combining it with wax and synthethic binding resin and was formed into panel by applying high temperature and pressure. Due to the fact that it was produced by recycling wood residuals as it’s main material, it is sometimes better known as “ECO-FRIENDLY BOARD”.
MDF is made up of separated fibers, (not wood veneers) and is used as building material similar in application as plywood. It is stronger and with higher density than normal particleboard.
The name “Medium-density” derives from the distinction in the densities of the fiberboard.
