Medium Density Fiberboard has been one of the most rapidly growing composite board products to enter the world market in recent years.
MDF is manufactured by refining woodchips and sawdust down to a microscopic level and then bonding these fibers together with a resin. The raw material used in manufacturing MDF can be 100% softwoods, 100% hardwoods, or a mixture.
The surface of MDF is flat, smooth, uniform, dense, and free of knots and grain patterns, all of which make finishing operations easier and consistent.
MDF mouldings are an economical way of bringing larger, more elegant mouldings into your home. The wider the profile, the higher the percentage savings over traditional wood mouldings.
The standard, conventional way of installing solid mouldings can be used to install MDF mouldings. The procedure for covering nail holes is also the same.
Paint quality varies by manufacturer. As the quality varies, so does the drying time. To achieve the best results, it is recommended that the specifications provided by the manufacturer be followed.
