WHAT IS MDF?
MDF, AKA Medium-density fibreboard is an engineered wood product made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure. MDF is generally denser than plywood.

Our MDF meets the formaldehyde emission levels of the California Air Resource Board (CARB), ensuring healthier air quality. MDF is durable and has a high resistance to wear. It is the perfect material for painted lacquer finishes and various artisan or hand-crafted finishes. MDF is also great for environments with low humidity and dramatic seasonal changes (example: Cabins or Cottages), as cracking at door joints due to seasonal changes will not occur, unlike painted wood doors which move causing cracking at door joints.
