MDF

MDF is a special type of composite wood produced by residues from the wood industry and mixed with waterproof glue. MDF is dimensionally stable and easy to work with. MDF is often used for model making, prototypes and finished furniture or installations. MDF is NOT suitable for outdoor use or in moist environments. Waterproof MDF should be used in such cases instead. MDF is easy to sand and work with.

Useful to know

MDF is often used for templates, tests and prototypes, models making, props, furniture, jewellery and displays.

As MDF is a composite product, colour can vary from sheet to sheet.

Raster engraving is only possible in A formats.

Vector and raster engraving

Both vector and raster engraving are possible. The material gains a darker colour in the engraved areas. The thicker the engraving, the darker the colour.

Raster engraving is only possible in A formats.

Avoiding burn marks

At the time of your order, you can choose to add protective film to avoid the worst marks caused by smoke damage and the cutting process. However, applying a protective film is not possible when raster engraving.

Laser cutting

Top –  A slight darkening of the wood will appear along the score lines. This can be removed by applying a film before cutting. You can choose to add this option when you place your order.

Edges – The edges look brownish and can rub off. This can be removed by wiping with a cloth or lightly sanding. The thicker the MDF, the darker the edges.

Bottom – There will be some discoloration on the bottom after the cutting process. Usually it is a honeycomb pattern, depending on the material on which it has been cut. You can opt to add a protective film to your order, which will remove most of this. For A formats, you can also choose to add a double-sided adhesive tape, enabling you to put your design up on a wall without the use of any nails and screws.

MDF can be painted, oiled or lacquered to protect the surface and edges.
