Because of their dimensional stability and smooth surface, melamine boards are often utilised for laminate veneers and decorative wood panels in a range of visible, interior applications such as kitchen, bathroom and office furniture as well as shelving and wardrobes.Find Out More About Our Types of Melamine Faced MDF
Melamine Faced MDF
Just like regular MDF, melamine MDF boards are easy to cut and work with and are much the same in terms of their manufacturing process (bar the melamine face, of course). The core of the boards combines resin and wood fibres together under extreme pressure; the result is a board heavier than conventional wood with equal strength.
The waterproof melamine veneer applied to the boards optimises the durability of the boards, offering a wipeable surface which can resist water and tolerate spills and splashes.

Frequently Asked Melamine Faced MDF Questions
What PPE Is Needed When Cutting MDF?
MDF board creates dust when cut, and this dust can be harmful if ingested or inhaled. To avoid health risks, it is important to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) such as goggles and dust masks. In addition, machinery should be fitted with the correct dust extraction equipment, and the workshop ought to have good ventilation.
What Is The Difference Between Wood Veneer & Melamine?
Melamine is a man-made material that comes in a range of colours (such as white matt and pearl finishes), eliminating the need for further finishing processes. Wood veneer consists of strips of wood that are glued to plywood, resulting in an imperfect, half-done look.
What Are The Benefits Of Using MDF Over Real Wood?
MDF offers many benefits, perhaps the most significant of these is that MDF sheet does not have any natural defects associated with standard wood such as knots, kinks, grains or whorls. It is, therefore, much easier to cut into various shapes and sizes without distortion or warping.
This makes for much more reliable work and saves time and material wastage during the building process.
