Veneered MDF is primarily used for internal use only. Ensuring that it doesn't come into contact with elements such as water, MDF will hold its form in any way it's used. Cutting and marking with either electrical saws or handsaws are used to your own benefits. Making sure that all edges are sanded smooth after cutting will provide a clean and smooth finish when applying paints. Doing so also prevents any harmful fibres being released from the board. In terms of fixings, screws and biscuit dimensions should be taken into consideration, in order to maintain a clean finish.
MDF is made from recycled offcuts, sawdust, wood chippings and from trees not suitable for other uses. Different manufacturers list how much recycled material goes into their products. MDF is considered a green product and environmentally friendly.
Correct PPE should always be used when using MDF. Its harmful fibres are known to cause health issues so goggles and dust masks are required. A respirator with a P2 Filter rating should be considered compared to a disposable dust mask. It is recommended that any cutting is undertaken in a well-ventilated area.
