MDF in Furniture Production

In a nutshell, wood is crushed into chips, refined into fibre, mixed with glue and wax and compressed under a high temperature hot press. This in turn cures the glue which then binds the fibre together to become raw MDF.

Medium density fiberboard (MDF) is a high grade, composite material that performs better than solid wood in many areas. Made from recycled wood fibers and resin, MDF is machine dried and pressed to produce dense, stable sheets. (Note it’s built from recycled materials, thus qualifying it as “green”.)

MDF stands up better to changes in heat and humidity than solid wood. Solid wood boards typically expand and contract both horizontally and vertically when temperatures and humidity rise and fall. Because of this, cabinets, doors and paneling made from solid wood require care and maintenance.

MDF can be milled by CNC machines in one-piece frames with the center cut out for a panel. Because of its density, MDF does not move independently from the frame and the inserted panel does not need to float like the conventional five-piece solid wood door.  Since the MDF panel doesn’t float within the frame, hairline cracks do not form along the edges of the panel or at the style and rail joinery.

MDF is readily available in panel sizes larger than those available for solid wood.  These large sheets can be milled into bead board panels or wainscot paneling

Medium density fiberboard is the most appropriate material in producing high-end hotel furniture.

ADVANTAGES over solid wood

•Chemical substance could open ability to eliminate pests and wood worm.

•Humid condition causes less damages on MDF during long-term using.

•The fiberboard (MDF) brings about flexibility for designers due to its dimensional customization.

•MDF does not get cracks or splits under luxury hospitality furniture production.

•This material is reasonable choice for economic consideration.
