Upgrade furniture projects to PREMIER

Medium density fibreboard (MDF) is an exceptionally versatile product that can be used to make furniture, cabinetry, panelling and even be laminated for decorative purposes in flooring. 

MDF offers furniture makers and carpenters a host of benefits, including a smooth finish, excellent machinability, strength and consistency. Wood fibres are used to make the panels, which are pressed with resin to make a homogeneous panel – making it easier to machine and allowing for greater flexibility and creativity. 

MDF measuring 3-6mm is mainly used in furniture applications such as backings for wardrobes, chests of drawers and shelving. MDF is now also a popular choice for wall panelling, usually seen in living rooms, hallways and bedrooms, because its smooth and even surface makes it easier to apply paint. 

MEDITE PREMIER from MEDITE SMARTPLY is a multi-purpose MDF, produced using superior wood refining technology and specially designed resins. Its smooth surface and excellent machining properties makes it suitable for the thinnest laminates and surface coatings.  

End users can enjoy consistency of quality and thickness, as well as reduced tool wear. This ensures that sophisticated finishing and processing techniques can be completed – offering greater design freedom. MEDITE PREMIER is available in a range of sizes and thicknesses, including 3-6mm. 

“MEDITE PREMIER is an excellent product for furniture projects, from creating backings for television units and wardrobes, to making higher end bespoke furnishings,” said Rebecca Goldsmith, Product Manager at MEDITE SMARTPLY. “It’s also a popular choice for wall panelling because its consistent, smooth surface makes it easy to apply paint and even apply the thinnest of  laminates so a high-quality finish can be easily achieved.

“We’ve also seen examples of the product being used to make small cupboards and drawers in caravans, and even a project where the user made photo frames from the panel. It’s a truly versatile product.”
