Highly Moisture Resistance (HMR) MDF is a special type of panel created to be placed in areas of high humidity or which may have occasional wetting. HMR MDF is best applicable for areas like kitchen cupboards, bathroom vanities, laundry cupboards, and shelvings.
Moisture ResistanceMDF is mixed with additives like wax and resin. These substances guarantee protection from moisture damage which natural wood is known for over a prolonged time. This has made MDF a great fit for areas like the kitchen and bathroom.
ManufacturabilityMedium-density fibreboards are easier to construct for manufacturers comparative to particleboard. Due to its surface properties, medium-density boards are easier to laminate and veneer. The same property also helps to make painting them very economical as they are less paint absorbent than particleboard. Due to its flexible structure, MDF can bend and be cut into various shapes without compromising its strength, increasing their versatility.
Thermal and Acoustic InsulationOther than domestic households MDF has applications in commercial space. For thermal insulation, MDF boards are an efficient and cheap solution. Due to insulation the heat /cold loss inside the room is reduced and helps you save money on your electricity bill. A 12mm MDF board can provide thermal insulation equivalent to a 150mm brick wall. Due to the porous, yet durable structure, MDF boards are a great fit for acoustic insulations in recording studios.
Ecological CompatibilityCommercial and domestic areas must be ecologically sound. MDF is a great fit for ecologically compatible areas. They have lesser formaldehyde emissions when compared to particle boards which make them less toxic and more environmentally friendly. They are a perfect fit for kitchens and nurseries or kids’ rooms.
