Details

With moisture-resistant MDF from Cut My, you can take on wall panelling, bathroom vanities, built-in cabinetry, and more with confidence. The water-repellent construction prevents warping, even in steamy rooms or areas prone to spills. Dreaming up your next bathroom remodel or laundry room revamp? With 6mm moisture-resistant MDF, you can install beautiful wainscoting and build storage cabinetry that stands up to humidity with ease. The smooth sanded surface finishes beautifully when painted  for a flawless factory-finished look

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 wood chippings, sawdust and recycled offcuts of other woods that would typically be discarded.

We also offer priming on all of our moisture-resistant MDF sheets which allows you to skip the prep work and start painting right away. Just topcoat with your colour choice for professional results. With our customisable sizing and cutting services, your DIY build is easier than ever.

Applications

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. 6mm moisture-resistant MDF can be used in several 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 moisture resistance compared to standard MDF sheets due to the resins it is produced with. At this thickness, MR MDF is great for shelving and furniture, but may not hold as much weight as a higher thickness. It would also be ideal for cabinets and wood wall panelling in humid areas - that's why we use it for our bathroom wall panelling kits!

As well as MR MDF, we also offer veneered MDF, melamine MDF and fire-rated MDF sheets.

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.

Really pleased with the quality of this. I wanted an oak top for a storage box I'm making but couldn't justify cost of solid oak. This looks great and the veneer is very good.
