How is MDF Made?
Our eco-sustainable MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) is made in Australia, using the high-quality fibers of eucalyptus & pine wood shavings and pieces that might otherwise have been discarded but can instead be recycled to make a rigid backing board. This contributes to reducing waste and maximizing the percentage of wood used.
These wood shavings which are compressed and bonded with resin glue. The wood sourced for manufacturing our MDF boards is sustainably sourced from Australian plantation timbers only. MDF is also recyclable as well.
Our MDF backing boards are precisely cut on our industrial CNC machinery and come in a variety of pre-cut size options. All boards are 3mm thick, making them durable, strong and ideal for support backings for picture framing.
What Can MDF Be Used For?
MDF sheets are commonly as backings in picture frames and photo frames, because it is rigid, durable and strong. These MDF sheets can be used as hard backings for canvas frames.
They can also be used by artists as a substrate for acrylic or oil paintings, after the surface has been primed with gesso.
