MDF And Plywood Information
Medium-density fibreboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure. MDF is generally denser than plywood. It is made up of separated fibres, but can be used as a building material similar in application to plywood. It is stronger and much more dense than particle board.The name derives from the distinction in densities of fiberboad. Large-scale production of MDF began in the 1980s, in both North America and Europe.
Plywood is a manufactured wood panel from the family of manufactured boards (such as Medium-density fibreboard (MDF),particle board (chipboard), etc.) made from thin sheets of wood veneer. Plywood layers (called veneers or plies) are glued together, with adjacent plies having their wood grain rotated relative to adjacent layers up to 90 degrees.
