MDF / HDF boards: Medium-density fibreboards (MDF) and high-density fibreboards (HDF) are made of wood fibres, mainly from bark-free softwood, impregnated with glue and pressed under pressure and heat in a dry process. The gentle pressing process makes it possible to produce a wood-based material that is equally homogeneous in the longitudinal and transverse directions.
At 550 and 800 kg/m³, the density of MDF boards lies between sawn timber and wet fibre boards; HDF boards are particularly highly compressed (over 800 kg/m³). The edges are smooth and firm and can be profiled without special gluing. As no water is pressed off, the undersides do not reveal any sieve marks: dry-pressed boards are available smooth or sanded on both sides. MDF and HDF boards have a particularly high-quality appearance.
- Furniture construction (e.g. for kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, living rooms and doors)
- Trade fair and shop construction
- Interior fittings (panelling, planking)
- As a substrate for laminate flooring
Advantages in application

- Extremely clean processing, even with milled out areas
- Clean cut edges that can be densely lacquered
- High-quality surfaces (smoother than chipboard or OSB)
- Higher load capacity compared to chipboard
- High bending and tensile strength
