In the 1980s, MDF was developed to serve the growing flat-pack furniture market. MDF is made by breaking down wood waste into tiny fibres, mixing it with urea-formaldehyde, and then putting it under heat and pressure to solidify it. The MDF is made into huge sheets, and then the MDF is cut to size to serve the market.
MDF is manufactured with unique properties and comes in different kinds: Moisture resistant (green fibres), Fire retardant (red fibres), High-density, Ultralight, Coloured, etc. MDF is not a decorative product but, due to its smooth surface, it can be laminated with a layer of wood veneer, acrylic or melamine, or just covered with paint using a brush or a spray gun. As a wood-based product, MDF is very versatile and has become widely used in furniture mass production and bespoke projects.
At Cworkshop, we offer MDF cut to size service for professionals and DIY enthusiasts. We use Cutting Optimisation software to map out the cutting pattern for every job to eliminate time and material wastage. Advanced industrial-grade and computer-aided cutting machines, managed by professional operators, deliver unparalleled precision and accuracy. The machines use two saw blades, and in addition to the primary saw blade, a scoring blade is used to ensure that each cut is smooth and chip-free on both sides. We inspect panel cutting quality and replace saw blades regularly to ensure a clean cut every time.
