What is MDF? Types and advantages


MDF is a medium-density fiberboard widely used in the production of furniture, doors and door moldings, in interior decoration, as well as in construction.

MDF boards are made by pressing wood fiber at high temperature. At that, only natural components are used in the production process, which makes the material absolutely safe for human health.

The main advantages of MDF boards include:

  1. high strength;
  2. environmental friendliness;
  3. moisture resistance;
  4. long service life;
  5. ease of installation;
  6. heat and noise insulation properties;
  7. decorative properties.

There is a classification of MDF boards by the type of processing (raw or melanine faced MDF) and physical properties (moisture-resistant, fire-resistant).

  • Raw MDF
  • Melanine faced MDF
  • Moisture-resistant MDF
  • Fire-resistant MDF

When choosing products for the manufacture of furniture and interior items that will be used in public places, we recommend paying attention to the new product by Kastamonu – fire-resistant boards corresponding to the KM1 class of fire hazard of construction materials. They have a low degree of toxicity and have no analogues of Russian manufacture.

For the ease of distinguishing between moisture-resistant and fire-resistant MDF boards, Kastamonu has introduced a different color matching for them: green pigment is added to moisture-resistant boards, while red pigment - to fire-resistant ones. This color matching is used only for visual differences between the boards and does not affect their physical, mechanical and strength properties.
