Details

Our 12mm moisture-resistant MDF is the ideal sheet material for high-humidity environments like bathrooms and kitchens. It contains a moisture-repellent resin that makes it more resistant to swelling and warping than standard MDF.

Moisture-resistant MDF has many useful properties, it is easy to work using common tools and fasteners. It also takes paint, veneers and laminates better than standard MDF as it absorbs less moisture. The material is also made from recycled wood fibres so it is eco-friendly.

This premium MDF withstands humidity for consistent performance. With a smooth finish, the 12mm thickness provides strength and durability for cabinetry, fixtures, furniture, and more. Whilst moisture-resistant MDF is more stable in humid environments than standard MDF, it is not waterproof and can still swell if too saturated. We do not recommend using this material for external applications.

We offer a range of other MDF boards, including veneered MDF, melamine MDF and fire-rated MDF.

Applicaitons

Moisture-resistant grade MDF can be used in areas of homes or businesses where moisture or humidity is an issue, such as

  • Bathrooms, kitchens or storage areas.
  • It can be used to great effect in boiler rooms or laundry and utility rooms, as well as cubicles and washrooms.
  • Crafting - it can be a great material to use for arts and crafts as it takes to paint very well.
  • Windowsills and frames.
  • This variety of MDF is also popular for shop fitting, bars and for general joinery. 
  • We supply this thickness of MR MDF for our wall panelling kits.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is moisture-resistant MDF?

With a slight green tint, water-resistant MDF, also known as MR MDF, contains a moisture-repellent resin that provides increased resistance to humidity. Waxes and resins create a water barrier within the wood fibres. As a result of this, our MR MDF is ideal for use in high-humidity areas or areas of high moisture.

What thickness do I need?

Thinner sheets, like 6mm and 9mm MR MDF, are good for lightweight panels, overlays and cabinet components. Medium thicknesses like 12mm and 18mm MR MDF are very versatile for furniture, cabinets, shelving and built-ins. The thickest 25mm MR MDF provides extra durability for heavy-duty furniture tops, worktops, and shelving.

Is all MDF moisture-resistant?

Not all MDF is moisture-resistant. MDF is a porous material, and moisture-resistant sheets prevent the MDF sheets from warping or being affected by moisture.

Can you paint moisture-resistant MDF?

Often chosen for its inexpensive cost to create furniture, MDF can be painted to add some character or personality to any piece.  You can find out more in our guide: How to Paint MDF

How do you waterproof MDF panels?

Moisture-resistant MDF sheets are already resistant to moist areas and humidity, however, you can improve their hydrophobia by coating them in an appropriate waterproof primer or paint.

How does MR MDF compare to plywood for moisture resistance?

Plywood uses waterproof glues but can still separate when wet. MR MDF retains its form and strength better than wood-based boards. We offer a range of marine plywood boards if MDF isn't suitable for your project.

Awful. Damaged on delivery, no response at all. I can only assume it was/is a scam, or their complaints department is the same bloke that wraps their products. Steer clear.

Only option on the market is buying a full sized veneered board, wasting the off cuts and edging the actual size required ones self, this offers a really good alternative.
