Order MDF Ecologique made-to-measure boards online

Order cut-to-size MDF Ecologique 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 Ecologique: what is it?

MDF is a popular board material that can be used for countless projects. MDF Ecologique is an MDF type that is low in formaldehyde. This is because MDF Ecologique is produced of softwood fibres without added formaldehyde. MDF Ecologique can be used in spaces where health is especially important, such as schools, hospitals and museums. MDF Ecologique is suitable for dry indoor areas.

Do you wish to use MDF for visible work? MDF Ecologique is a constructive board. This means that this board material requires the necessary finishing before it can be used for visible work.

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 Ecologique, 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 Ecologique

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 and 18 mm.

Machining of MDF Ecologique 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 Ecologique 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 Ecologique

MDF is the material of choice for furniture and interior applications. MDF Ecologique 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 Ecologique is not suitable for applications in humid areas or outdoors.

Alternatives to standard MDF boards

Is MDF Ecologique 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:
