Medium Density Fibreboard(MDF) is a homogeneous engineered wood panel made by breaking down timber residuals into wood fibres, using a Defibrator. These fibres are then combined with a resin binder and other components to improve the MDF’s physical properties they are then compressed under high temperatures and pressures to form panels. MDF is generally denser than plywood with a typical density of 750kg per m3 or greater, for densities higher than 850kg the product is known as HDF (High Density Fibreboard). The continuity and homogeneous nature of the MDF panel lends itself very well to the mass production of Furniture, Doors, Picture Frames, Profiled Strips and Construction Components. The MDF panels can be made moisture resistant, fire retardant and fungal resistant by combining various additives.
Customers purchasing MDF from Malaysia have the choice of panels made from either 100% Rubber Wood (plantation species) or Mixed Tropical Wood (often certified by PEFC). Rubber Wood MDF will be in lighter colour, while Mixed Tropical Wood MDF will be 100% free from latex spots. These quality engineered wood panels areavailable in there raw form or overlaid with laminates of natural wood veneer, paper or synthetics such as melamine, PU and PVC.
