When it comes to making furniture, medium-density fibreboard (MDF) provides a host of benefits. As well as excellent machinability, smooth finish, strength and consistency, MDF can be manufactured in various thicknesses, allowing for greater versatility when it comes to design. 

It’s not just ideal for furniture. MDF is also now a popular choice for wall panelling, usually seen in living rooms, hallways and bedrooms. Again, this is down to its smooth and even surface, which makes it easier to apply paint or lacquer onto it. 

MEDITE SMARTPLY has an extensive range of MDF products that offer standard, speciality and technical variants to meet a multitude of specifications.

MEDITE PREMIER is an excellent choice for furniture applications and panelling. This multi-purpose MDF is produced using superior wood-refining technology and specially designed resins. Its smooth surface and excellent machining properties make it suitable for the thinnest laminates and surface coatings – offering greater design freedom.

MEDITE PREMIER is available in a range of sizes and thicknesses including 3-6mm, which is commonly used in basic furniture applications such as backings for wardrobes, chest of drawers, and shelving.

Those working on kitchen or bathroom projects will find MEDITE OPTIMA the ideal choice. This higher-density, moisture-resistant MDF panel is suitable for applications where users need added density, enhanced machinability and higher surface quality compared to other standard moisture-resistant panels.

For end users looking to save time on their projects, there is MEDITE MR PLUS – a premium white primed moisture resistant MDF panel. The panel is primed on both surfaces using an opaque UV-cured coating system with a matt low gloss finish. It has all the benefits of MEDITE MR but is designed to eliminate the need to prime the panel before painting. It’s ideal for exhibition stands, shop fit-outs, kitchen and bathroom furniture, general furniture and general interior joinery.

All MEDITE products are fully certified, UKCA and CE marked, and legally sourced. Additionally, the panels are CARB 2 compliant, which contributes to a healthier indoor environment.
