If you've ever wondered how to make your interior stylish and modern yet easy on your pocket; then look no further - MDF is here to add aesthetics to your space. Whether you're a homeowner, seasoned designer or a DIY enthusiast, get ready to unlock the potential of MDF for transforming your living spaces into functional and aesthetically pleasing havens.


MDF Applications: Crafting Your Interiors


MDF, in its various forms, exhibits versatility. 


Exterior-grade MDF Board serves as a durable choice for outdoor furniture, while interior-grade MDF excels indoors and flaunts intricate woodwork. Pre-laminated MDF provides a stylish veneer for countertops and furniture, while High-Density Moisture-Resistant (HDMR) MDF delivers lasting quality for kitchen cabinetry. 

Each material plays a pivotal role in diverse construction scenarios, catering to specific needs with deftness and precision.

Adaptable to various design needs, MDF is a versatile material with four primary types.


Exterior Grade MDF


Exterior Grade MDF is the go-to choice for championing demanding conditions. It offers exceptional screw retention on both the face and edges, providing a sturdy foundation for your furniture. This versatile material is easy to shape, route, groove, and paint, allowing for intricate woodwork. The natural wood-like appearance, coupled with durability, makes exterior-grade MDF ideal for any environment.


Interior Grade MDF


Crafted from natural wood fibres fused with heat and resins, our interior-grade MDF not only enhances your home decor but also promotes a healthier indoor environment. This type of MDF is ideal for making cabinets, wall cladding, panelling, or false ceilings. From such MDF materials, you can expect a beautiful finish that's chemical-free. Also, Greenply has a  CARB P2 Interior MDF, which emits zero emission, and is certified by CARB and EPA.


High-Density Moisture-Resistant (HDMR) MDF


Engineered to withstand humidity and moisture, HDMR MDF is a superior choice for spaces susceptible to damp conditions. It ensures lasting quality in environments where moisture is a concern.
