Standard MDF

Ideal for creative applications such as routing, moulding and general purpose work.

Standard MDF is constructed consistently throughout the panel which makes it easy to cut, machine or route, simultaneously reducing the burden on your tools. This makes it perfect for furniture making and other creative applications. In addition, its smooth surface allows for a range of options with regards to lamination, veneering, bonding and painting.

Hanson Plywood’s collection of Standard Medium Density Fibreboard are all suitable for general, non-structural purposes in dry conditions.
