MDF stands for Medium-density fiberboard, which means medium-density fiberboard (Introducing kitchen MDF doors). One Stop MDF is a versatile material for many purposes. Its cost-effective and applicable for use on shelving, storages, cabinets and interior designing projects. Its smooth surface brings a perfect ability for painting. In Rosen company variable thickness for MDF boards are considered based on the need and application during production (variety of MDF doors designs).
One Stop MDF is mostly sawdust, resin, wax, wood fibers and glue that have been fused together under high pressure and heat. Its color is varied from tan to dark brown range. The process of working with MDF is almost similar to working with other types of wood. These panels are engineered wood product made of fibers, which are small pieces of softwood or hardwood. Thus, they are stronger and much denser compared to particle boards. Particle boards are low-density fiberboards which are made from smaller pieces than MDF. There are also high-density fiberboards known as hardboards that are made under more heat and pressure than one stop MDFs, making them strong and expensive. Cutting and engraving on engineered woods such as particle boards and plywood have more complexity compared to one stop MDF.
It is important to be informed about advantages and disadvantages of one stop MDF panels.
Advantages of one stop MDF panels
- They are inexpensive. Thus they are within everyone’s reach to purchase. It is the biggest advantages of these panels compared to natural woods.
- They are made of recycled woods, which is environmentally friendly. But this doesn’t mean it is lowering the quality of the product.
- They have ability to be accept veneer attachment in order to look like real wood. Thus they can be a good alternative to natural wood without compromising on the appearance of the natural woods.
- They are easy to paint in variety of colors.
- They can be shaped easily.
- They don’t have knots that can make a piece hard to attach. This gives them the ability have easier sanding and cutting process. As a result, the obtained product has more stylish appearance. The straight surface of the MDF makes it possible to install different types of coating on one stop MDF for specific purposes or just to create variety of facings.
- They are extremely resistant to pests, due to the chemicals used in their construction.
Disadvantages of one stop MDF panels
- If One Stop MDF is cracked, it can’t be repaired or covered easily.
- One Stop MDF will be damaged and swelled if it touches water.
- They do not contain natural grain on them.
- They are less child-friendly, due to their off-gassing small amounts of formaldehyde during construction.
- They contain glue in them that can make them hard to sink particular types of fasteners into them.
- They are weaker compared to natural wood and they are not designed to resist extreme stress.
- They don’t take nails or screws efficiently. Hammering a nail into the MDF material is often hard and takes a lot of time.
MDF panels are produced in different dimensions for industrial, commercial and residential applications. They are often used in kitchen cabinets frames or doors, laminate flooring, wall covering, home furnishing and construction. The one stop MDF is mainly used for cabinets and shelves or wall unit areas which require large spaces. Choosing the right size of one stop cut panels has an effect on MDF emission reduction and controlling.
One Stop cut MDFs are mainly being cut with CNC cutting. CNC stands for computer numerical control (custom CNC cutting). CNC machines does the work completely automated and the way it works is that each point in the design has an equation point on the material and is placed in specific coordinate. This method prevents mistakes that are common while hand cutting boards, thus one stop cut MDFs are pretty accurate aesthetically. Meanwhile, these panels are created and produced with an exact same shape and size in large quantities.
