Key Features

Medium density fiberboard is the newest development in the wood panel industry. It is made from wood and other lignocelluloses materials, refined into fibers and reconstituted with a resin binder which is carried out at elevated temperature and pressure, and then sanded to uniform and precise thickness to get best quality plain and prelaminated MDF boards. Our entire range of Medium Density Fibre products conforms to BIS standards and bears the ECO MARK.

  • Eco-friendly, since it uses lops and tops of fast growing species of plantation wood, thus preserving forest cover
  • Uniform density properties ensure resemblance to natural wood and freedom from knots and twists
  • Available in a wide range of pastel shades in wood grain and in thicknesses from 8 mm to 25 mm
  • Available in exterior and interior grades and in variants of single-sided and double-sided laminations.
  • High internal bond
  • Strong load bearing panel
  • High modulus of rupture
  • Smooth surface, thus does not require finishing
  • Does not warp, bend or change even when exposed to humid conditions
  • Can be moulded & routed to give any shape
  • Edges do not split as it has a single solid core
  • High screw holding strength

Advantages

  • As the laminated decorative paper forms an integral part of the board, de-lamination doesn’t occur under even the most adverse usage
  • Smooth surface, with uniform density and high internal bond, make it ideal for turning, milling, carving, grooving, painting and lacquering
  • Free from defects of waviness, telescopy, air pockets or other bonding defects
  • Excellent machinability characteristics enable mass production possibilities
  • Other precision machining operations, including edges, contouring and profiling too can be performed
  • Our pre-laminated MDF board is resistant to abrasion, household chemicals, steam, cigarette burns and cracking
  • Provides superior strength combined with workability in all directions
  • High dimensional stability in variable atmospheric conditions
  • No stress points or whorls
  • Does not splinter or flake
  • Highly economical
