Product Overview

MDF has many advantages over plank wood, particleboard, or high density fiberboard. It's very smooth because the wood fibers used in its manufacture are uniform and fine. This makes it have low tear out, which means that when sawed, the end has a smooth cut instead of a jagged edge. This also means that a coat of primer and a couple of coats of paint take well, leaving an attractive, finished surface unlike other composite wood products.
  • Can be nailed, glued, screwed, or stapled, making it as versatile as plank wood
  • Medium density fiberboard, or MDF, is a composite wood product similar to particleboard; it's made out of wood waster fibers glued together with resinl heat, and pressure; MDF is appropriate for many applications, from cabinetry to moulding to shelving
  • Builders value MDF because it can be nailed, glued, screwed, stapled, or attached with dowels, wood fibers used in its manufacture are uniform and fine, which makes it very smooth, does not warp or split, and does not expand and contract like natural wood
  • Oil-base or latex paints can be used when finishing MDF boards
  • Excellent for interior use trimming windows, doors and cased openings

Why do you call a board that is 0.669" thick a 1" board? Two-thirds of an inch? That is REALLY s...

Answer

The 1" product identifier is the historical industry terminology for products in this class. Actual board thickness in this 1" class of products ranges from 3/4" to 11/16" to 18mm to 16mm...and many others in-between. We make sure to identify our product with the actual thickness "0.669" so the consumer knows the exact thickness by which this specific product is sold.

Can MDF Boards be routed. Like for cabinet doors

Asked by Jeff February 7, 2019

Answer

MDF Boards can be routed and shaped with any carbide tool....you will get a nice clean profile. I recommend Priming the cut surfaces prior to painting as the raw MDF will absorb paint rapidly compared to the primed surfaces.

Can this be stained?

Asked by JS September 19, 2020
1
Answer

No, you can't get the affect of wood stain that you achieve with raw wood as the surface is primed. The surface is primed, making it ideal for paint adhesion.

Can this be used for outdoors and can will it withstand rain or be in puddles? If not, what wood...

Asked by FCRes April 4, 2020

Answer

No, this product is not intended for Outdoor use...Indoor Only. For a product that will be exposed to the elements and standing water I recommend the following: Pressure Treated Lumber (enhanced for exterior use) Plastic or PVC

The picture shows a radius edge. The specifications say square edge. Is it a radius or square edge?

Asked by Rem November 21, 2019

Answer

Excellent question and observation. The answer is both! The boards are primed 4-sides and the product is defined as E2E or Eased Two Edge. Two edges are Eased "slightly rounded" and the opposite two edges are SE or Square Edge. This product configuration allows the user to flip the board for E2E or SE edge out, depending on desired look. Hope this helps.
