Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF)

Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF) is used mainly by the furniture industry, but also for interior mouldings as well as substrates for laminate flooring. The homogenous structure of the MDF board gives it good bending strength, smooth surface and good screw retaining properties, making it suitable for many different applications. The vast majority of applications do not require a water-resistant adhesive. Liquid urea resin is preferred in MDF production based on its fast curing and low cost. To a lesser extent melamine-urea resins are also used to manufacture MDF when a degree of moisture resistance or dimensional stability is required.
