Ultralight MDF

Smooth and stable board that is even lighter than other MDF variants.

Ultralight MDF boards are specifically manufactured to be easier to handle with reduced tool wear while maintaining a lower density than average MDF boards. This makes it suitable for specifically selected applications where weight–saving is critical.

The surface of the board is smooth, making it ideal for laminating, veneering, painting and other forms of further treatment.
