Description

MDF Biobased is an MDF type with extremely low formaldehyde emissions. This is because there is no formaldehyde-based resin added to this board material.

In addition, MDF Biobased boards consist of 89% renewable materials and is made of 100% reclaimed wood. This board material is thus completely recycled. MDF Biobased is an environmentally friendly and sustainable choice for applications where MDF is used, such as furniture, interior finishing and building materials. It offers the possibility of producing high-quality products with reduced environmental impact and contributes to the development of a circular economy.

Due to its special bonding, MDF Biobased is the best choice when health plays a role in the choice of board material. Examples include schools, hospitals and museums. This board material is only suitable for dry indoor areas.

Order MDF Biobased made-to-measure boards online

Order cut-to-size MDF Biobased easily online. MDF can be sawn or milled into various shapes. The most popular shape is a rectangle, but we also cut circles, ovals, hexagons or even parallelograms to size. For example, if you have a round dining table in mind, choose the 'circle' shape in the product configurator, or go for a rectangle with rounded corners. Do you want your do-it-yourself project neatly finished? Then choose one of the available (edge) finishes.

MDF Biobased: wat is dat?

MDF

MDF is a popular type of wood and is often used because of its smooth surface and because it is easy to process and assemble. MDF is made of wood fibres that are compressed using resins and binding agents. The wood fibres are obtained by grinding hardwood or softwood species into small fibres. These fibres are then mixed with a resin, such as urea formaldehyde, and other additives to improve the properties of the material.

The technical construction of MDF provides several advantages. It is a stable material that does not shrink or expand under the influence of moisture and temperature, unlike solid wood. It also has high strength and can be used for various structural applications. Moreover, MDF's smooth surface provides an excellent base for paints, varnishes and laminates, making it easy to finish to the desired look.

Overall, the technical construction of MDF provides a versatile and cost-effective material that is widely applicable in the construction and furniture industries, where durability and easy machinability are required.

Want to use MDF for visible work? MDF Biobased is a structural board. This means that this board needs the necessary finishing before it can be used for visible objects.

MDF Biobased

MDF Biobased, also known as bio-MDF or green MDF, is a variant of MDF produced using renewable and organic raw materials. These boards consist of 89% renewable materials, and it is made of 100% reclaimed wood. This board material is thus completely recycled. The technical construction of MDF Biobased shows some differences compared to conventional MDF, with an emphasis on sustainability and environmental friendliness. 

Instead of using wood fibres derived from traditional wood species, MDF Biobased uses fibres from specific renewable sources. By using renewable raw materials, MDF Biobased helps reduce dependence on non-renewable resources and contributes to a reduced carbon footprint.

The production processes for MDF Biobased are similar to those of conventional MDF. The fibres are ground and mixed with the biobased binder. The result is an MDF panel with medium density and similar properties to conventional MDF, but with reduced environmental impact and no added formaldehyde.

Low-formaldehyde MDF variant

Formaldehyde is a gas that occurs naturally in wood, but also in adhesives, disinfectants and other products. In small quantities, formaldehyde is harmless, but in large quantities it can cause irritation and inflammation. The glue used for standard MDF contains formaldehyde. Over time, MDF always releases a little formaldehyde. In most cases, this is not a problem, but if a room has high humidity, strongly fluctuating temperatures or poor ventilation, the formaldehyde can be released in larger quantities. This increases the risk of irritation and inflammation. Standard MDF complies with the E1 standard, which means that the release of formaldehyde is less than 0.01 ppm (=parts per million). With MDF Biobased, this emission is even lower. The presence of formaldehyde in this material is equal to or less than that naturally present in wood.

Available thicknesses MDF Biobased

With us, you can order standard high-quality customised MDF in various thicknesses. You can easily specify the desired thickness in the product configurator. This way, you can be sure that the board material meets your requirements: both the format and the thickness of the material. The following thicknesses are available: 12 mm, 16 mm and 18 mm.

Machining of MDF Biobased boards

The board consists of wood fibres that are compressed under high pressure. This makes the material easy to process. When milling or sawing, this board material does not splinter. Due to its fibre structure, MDF Biobased is only suitable for indoor applications and in dry conditions.

During installation it is advisable to countersink the screws and to fill them with putty or filler. Afterwards, sand and paint the whole thing neatly in one go. Are you going to paint MDF? Then it is important to degrease the board well before painting. The material also sucks, which is why we recommend always finishing the edges with an edge sealer.

Specific applications of MDF Biobased

MDF is the material of choice for furniture and interior applications. MDF Biobased is a widely usable board that is suitable for various interior panelling applications. A door, a casing for piping, a bookshelf, a TV cabinet and a partition are a few examples of the application possibilities of MDF. Its homogeneous structure makes MDF, in comparison to other board materials, less susceptible to shrinking and expanding at varying temperatures. However, MDF Biobased is not suitable for applications in humid areas or outdoors.

Alternatives to standard MDF boards

Is MDF Biobased not the right wood type for your job? Looking for board material with a grain? Then go for poplar plywood. Do you want board material that can be used outdoors? Then take a look at phenolic plywood, MDF tricoya or multiplex okoumé. Or view our other MDF boards here:
