What is a Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF)?
Medium Density Fiberboard is a manufactured wood product. It is similar to particle board, which is made from pieces of wood that has been mixed with adhesives and then pressed into sheets.
Medium Density Fiberboard is a sheet of wood that has been manufactured. MDF has a lower cost than many types of hardwood lumber. It is considered a green product since it is made of waste materials and does not require fresh timber. MDF provides consistency throughout the board and is not susceptible to splintering.
Particle board is a type of manufactured wood. The particles that are referenced in this wood's name are comprised of a collection of wood shavings and scraps that are granulated and blended with a resin before being pressed and extruded into a board form. The scraps used to form particle board can be any wood byproduct collected at a saw mill such as saw dust or wood shavings. It is the granulized nature if the wood used in constructing particle board that makes it different from plywood.
VERSATILE PANEL WITH CONSISTENT QUALITY
Oriented Strand Board is a widely used, versatile structural wood panel. Manufactured from waterproof heat-cured adhesives and rectangularly shaped wood strands that are arranged in cross-oriented layers, OSB is an engineered wood panel that shares many of the strength and performance characteristics of plywood. OSB's combination of wood and adhesives creates a strong, dimensionally stable panel that resists deflection, delamination, and warping; likewise, panels resist racking and shape distortion when subjected to demanding wind and seismic conditions. Relative to their strength, OSB panels are light in weight and easy to handle and install.
