Veenered MDF, oak
MDF is a special type of composite wood produced by residues from the wood industry and mixed with glue. MDF is dimensionally stable and easy to work with. This type of MDF has a layer of light oak veneer glued to both sides. MDF is often used for making models and prototypes. Oak veneered MDF is not suitable for outdoor use or in moist environments without being treated. Just like regular MDF, MDF with oak veneer is easy to sand and work with.

Useful to know
MDF is a special type of composite wood produced by residues from the wood industry and mixed with glue.
MDF is dimensionally stable and easy to work with and is therefore often used for models and prototypes.
Veneered MDF, light oak consists of a core of regular MDF, with a layer of light oak veneer glued on both sides.
Veneered MDF is not suitable for outdoor use or in moist environments without being treated. Just like regular
MDF, veneered MDF is easy to sand and work with.
Vector and raster engraving
The material can be both vector and raster engraved. The material gains a darker tone in the engraved areas. The thicker the engraving, the darker the colour. The colour of the engraving, just like the colour of the wood, can vary from sheet to sheet.
Thick vector and raster engraving may cause some discoloration around the etched area. Particularly with raster engraving. However, this can easily be removed by light sanding.
Raster engraving is not possible on sizes larger than A1.
Direction of the wood grain
If you have any specific preferences for the grain direction on the wood and your design, please let us know by making an arrow in your file that indicates to us which way we should turn the sheet. You can also inform us in the comments box when placing your order about any such preferences you may have.
Only possible with A format.
Avoiding burn marks
A protective film on top and /or bottom can be added when ordering to avoid the worst soot and burn marks from the laser.
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.
Bottom – As standard delivery, a film is applied to the bottom prior to cutting. Therefore, the bottom has no noticeable marks. Some smoke may get underneath the film, which can easily be removed with fine sandpaper. You can also opt to have double-sided adhesive tape applied, if the design is to be mounted on a wall or suchlike.
MDF with oak veneer can be painted in the same way as regular MDF, but it is most often left untreated, oiled or lacquered to protect the surface.
