Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF) is an artificial wood product. Wood residuals are used to make MDF board. It has a large scale use in furniture making. Advantages and disadvantages of Medium Density Fibreboard are discussed below.

Made mainly from debarked pine and spruce wood, Our MDF excels with consistently high-quality fibre and a light colour. Owing to its fine fibre structure, this classic material is ideally suited for working and shaping.

The production of MDF (medium-density fibreboard) is a synthesis of a natural raw material and innovative technology. They have a bulk density of about 680 to 810 kg/cu.m and boast high bending strength and strong internal bonds.

The raw material we use to make our MDF boards is high-quality coniferous wood from debarked pine and spruce logs; mainly fresh thinnings from sustainably managed forests are used. First the wood is refined into fibre, then mixed with a binder and finally gently pressed. The result is an engineered wood product with a homogeneous structure both longitudinally and laterally: eco-friendly boards that are easy to work and use and are suitable for a vast range of furniture and interior applications.
