We offer a range of MDF types to choose from that are suitable for various applications which can be cut to any size or shape using our CNC router for a high level of accuracy and duplication. Whatever shape you have in mind, we can cut it – all you need to do is send us your drawings, in either CAD format or a sketch, and we can create it for you. Our CNC router can be used for rebating, pocketing and hole cutting on MDF sheets and other sheet materials, for added customisation. We also offer the option to add laser cutting, CNC engraving and mitred edges to your MDF sheeting.
Using state-of-the-art UV printers, we can print full sheets of MDF in one go, providing a consistent finish at a much faster rate than painting. We currently only list 8x4 sheets (2440x1220mm) but we’re able to purchase and cut sheets of up to 2000x3000mm, so get in touch with our team today to discuss your requirements. With optional next day delivery, your products can be with you fast – perfect if you’re working to a deadline. We have our own transport service which operates throughout most of the UK for larger orders. If you have a bigger ongoing project taking place, you can contact us to discuss bulk discounts and regular supply orders.
6mm moisture-resistant MDF sheets are well-suited for use in environments which are prone to humidity and high moisture levels, such as bathrooms, kitchens or utility rooms. Moisture-resistant MDF, also known as MR MDF, contains a moisture-repellent resin which provides an increased resistance to humidity. Moisture-resistant MDF is a premium-grade product that is designed for interior environments and is a versatile sheet material to work with.
6mm Moisture Resisant MDF Uses
There are several different varieties of MDF, depending on the application you’re using it for.
- 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.
Advantages of 6mm Moisture Resistant MDF
MR MDF isn’t the same as water-resistant wood, so it’s still prone to swelling and warping if it comes into contact with water, but it’s still an incredibly useful material for many applications. It’s an easy material to work with that can be fixed into place using glues, screws or nails, and it also has a smooth surface that’s perfect for veneers, laminates or stains and varnishes. MDF is an environmentally-friendly material that makes great use of the wood chippings, sawdust and recycled offcuts of other woods that would typically be discarded. We also offer fire retardant MDF.
Applications of 6mm Moisture Resistant MDF
6mm moisture-resistant MDF can be used in a number of different projects, from window frames and boxing in pipes to kitchen and bathroom storage. It’s ideally suited to shop fitting and bars as well, providing greater resistance to moisture compared to standard MDF sheets due to the resins it is produced with. At this thickness, MDF is great for shelving and furniture, as well as cabinets and panelling. We also offer 3mm MDF and 6mm MDF.

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. As a result of this, our MR MDF is ideal for use in high humidity areas or areas of high moisture.
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. We have written a guide to assist you in painting your MDF.
How do you waterproof MDF panels?
Moisture-resistant MDF sheets are already resistant to moist areas and humidity, however, you can improve its hydrophobia by coating it in an appropriate waterproof primer or paint.
Can you bond overlays directly to MR MDF?
Yes, MR MDF has excellent bonding properties for laminates and veneers. PVA wood glues achieve high-strength joints.
Do you need to prime moisture-resistant MDF?
Moisture-resistant MDF is easier to paint than other MDF types, however, we still recommend using a primer to ensure an even flat paint coverage. We are equipped with providing your sheets primed for you saving you time and effort.
How should edges be treated on MR MDF?
Edges can be finished with self-adhesive edging strips, solid wood edging, or PVC edging using standard techniques.
How does it 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.
