With the advancement of technology, more and more building materials appear on the market. There are different types of MDF, which can be used in construction works and in finishing panels for finishing walls / ceilings or for making furniture. Wood panels are popular with designers, as this material is used for decorative panels and window sills, aesthetically attractive and durable interior swing doors. Many builders use MDF panels and MDF T-beams: they insert them into the beams when creating floors in the monolithic construction process. Quite often they make the roof sheathing from water-resistant MDF modifications for better protection of oil-based paints.
But above all MDF boards are applicable in the furniture sector. Developed with a folding technique of structural elements from glued wood fibers, they are excellent for making chairs or an elegant headboard with this material. As a rule, all furniture for rooms with high air humidity (bathrooms, kitchens) is in veneered or laminated MDF.
For the production of MDF sheets, low value wood and wood waste (shavings, sheets) are normally used. The resulting product meets all the requirements for modern construction material: it is ecologically safe, durable and easy to mill and has other mechanical processes.
In addition, MDF is convenient for applying various decorative films or for laminating a natural veneer.
For these characteristics, MDF is the ideal material for the realization of customized projects. The use of this type of slabs is becoming more and more common, therefore MDF can be considered to be the material of the future furniture and woodworking sector.
Highly technological and physical-mechanical performance, respect for the environment and reasonable prices provide the growing popularity of the choice of using MDF boards in various applications. MDF lacks one of the main disadvantages of natural wood: heterogeneity of properties and natural defects. Contrary to plywood, the MDF is much less deformed; it has a higher density and a smaller thickness variation. Compared to the chipboard panel, MDF has greater strength and density, a smoother surface finish and high resistance to moisture.
The convenient format and a wide range of MDF thicknesses allow it to be used in both furniture production and construction.
MDF is widely used in the construction industry, replacing the more expensive wood materials.
Providing a high sound absorption and thermal insulation of the premises, MDF has been successfully used for the production of wall panels, partitions, doors and various materials for interior decoration.
Thanks to its high density, MDF is an excellent material for the production of windows, laminate floors and moldings.
The minimum values of variable thickness made of MDF are particularly appreciated for sanding walls and laying rough floors.
MDF is an ideal material for furnishing: wardrobes, kitchen, office, custom-made furniture and commercial equipment.
MDF is widely used for the production of furniture panels, furniture elements, worktops. Thanks to the high strength of MDF it is much better than the DSP holds the furniture.
The high resistance to humidity and resistance to temperature changes allow their use in the production of kitchen furniture and bathroom furniture, commercial, medical and laboratory equipment.
The processing possibilities of different types of MDF significantly expand its application in the design and development of furniture design.
Here are 10 creative ways to use MDF cards.
1) Bent parts for internal decoration;
2) Manufacture of window sills;
3) Wooden moldings for the building industry (plinth, cornices, baseboards, lintels, earth belt, etc.);
4) wall panels;
5) ceiling panels;
6) The alignment of the walls and their preparation for the final finishing;
7) Partition walls in offices and residential premises, creating arches, columns and other internal elements;
8) Thermal and acoustic insulation;
9) Production of interior doors with decorative relief;
10) Door production (under decorative coating, veneer or varnish, etc.).
