When choosing your EGGER board, it is important to check how each texture varies on our range of boards. You may find that some of our boards have different finishes, and care must be taken when ordering to assure that they are all matching finishes for a complete look. On each product you will see a code as part of its product name with an ST prefix, please see below for how the code correlates to its appropriate texture.

EGGER ST9

Used with solid colours, and woodgrains offering a soft and natural feel ST9 is a texture that supports matte surfaces, allowing the individual colour and texture to be the highlight of the sheet. The softness of the sheet does add a degree of faux authenticity, though its tactility may not always match the melamine applied.

EGGER ST10

Offering a highly authentic texture, ST10 provides a realistic feel for solid wood and material reproductions further developing the illusion of it being a different material while reliant on the inexpensive nature of the MFC sheet.

Common uses for Egger Boards

Egger melamine-faced chipboard has a vast range of applications thanks to its lightweight yet rigid construction and attractive, protective melamine surface. The wood chip core provides stability while the scratch, moisture and impact-resistant melamine faces create a ready-to-use surface ideal for both exposed and hidden applications.

  • Cabinetry - For both exposed cabinet boxes and hidden cabinet internals, Egger MFC's smooth, consistent surfaces and range of colour options are ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, laundries, wardrobes and entertainment units. Its moisture resistance prevents warping.
  • Shelving & Storage - The diversity of colours and patterns makes Egger MFC popular for visible storage and shelving units. Its harder melamine surface prevents dents and surface damage from daily wear and tear.
  • Furniture - Egger MFC is widely used in commercial and residential furniture including desks, tables, beds, displays and more. It machines cleanly for a flawless finish.
  • Partitions & Wall Panels - MFC is the product of choice for partitioning walls, display stands and noticeboards. It can be cut to size and directly mounted without edging.
  • Doors - The consistent quality and perfectly straight edges of Egger boards enable intricate door designs to be crafted with excellent fit.
  • Worktops & Countertops - MFC worktops provide a budget-friendly alternative to solid surfacing with similar performance benefits. Just apply the edging.
  • Flooring - Egger offers flooring-grade MFC suitable for use as an underlayment layer or directly laminated with overlays.

Advantages of Egger Board

  • Pre-laminated surfaces - The melamine resin faces are factory-applied for consistency and immediate use.
  • Dimensional stability - Egger MFC retains its shape across temperature and humidity changes better than solid wood.
  • Range of colours/finishes - From authentic wood looks to bold colours and patterns, we offer a vast catalogue of decorative surfaces.
  • Edge finishing not essential - The tough melamine edges resist moisture and impact, reducing the need for edging strips.
  • Impact and scratch resistant - The melamine face is more durable and forgiving than thinner foils or veneers.
  • Moisture resistant - Egger MFC withstands spills, splashes and high humidity making it suitable for bathrooms and kitchens.
  • Easy to machine and fit - It can be worked like wood using standard tools and fasteners.
  • Cost effective - Egger MFC is an affordable material option compared to solid woods and composites.

Cons

  • Not as strong or rigid as plywood - The chipboard core cannot match the strength of good quality plywood pound for pound. Needs more support in some applications.
  • Prone to damage if edges exposed - The melamine edges can chip or swell if left exposed and unprotected. Edges need to be banded.
  • Heat sensitivity - Prolonged high heat exposure can cause bubbles or delamination issues over time. Not ideal near stoves/ovens.
  • Melamine scratches show - Although very scratch resistant, any damage through the melamine will show white subsurface below.
  • Limited screw hold - Screws fixed into the edge of the boards have a tendency to pull out as the core crumbles.
  • Not easily repaired - Surface damage is difficult to patch and touch up discreetly unlike solid wood or paint grade boards.
  • Prone to fire/charring - The melamine and wood core will burn and char if exposed to flames. Fire rated grade is available.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Egger board made of?

Egger MFC consists of a core of wood chips bonded together with resin, sandwiched between two layers of melamine resin that create a smooth, decorative surface.

What thickness options are available?

All the Egger boards we offer cut-to-size are 18mm thick.

What sizes are Egger boards supplied in?

We cut Egger boards to any shape and size, with sheet sizes available up to 2800mm by 2070mm.

Can Egger MFC get wet?

The melamine surface resists moisture better than raw wood but it is not waterproof. Edges and screw holes are most vulnerable to swelling damage.

How should Egger boards be cleaned?

Wipe using a damp cloth with mild detergent. Avoid abrasive cleaners. Melamine surfaces are very scratch-resistant.

How can I cut and machine Egger MFC?

Use standard power saws and traditional woodworking tools. Carbide-tipped blades give the best results.

Ordered two walnut MF-MDF after first having ordered and received a sample. Communication was excellent, packaging was particularly good, fully protecting the panels. The panels perfectly matched the sample sent. A happy customer!

Used this as ‘eaves’ storage doors in a new loft room. Not a standard size so was having trouble finding a normal door. Very good quality, cut exactly to size, colour and finish is perfect - not a blemish or mark on them. Well priced too compared to other options I was looking at. Very happy and would use again for other projects without a doubt!

this is a great porduct and ebsite in case you need odd size planks. the only (small) challenge I have with it, is that it takes a long time (compared to other web selling companies) to get the product shipped. For the rest I have now used them twice and when a situation comes aongs, I will use them again.

The boards arrived well packed and certainly no chance of being damaged, in fact it was a challenge to break into and get to the boards themselves but all in the name of being preserved as they should be. They were exactly what I was looking for.

Had a couple of issues with getting a quote but quickly rectified after I rang up. After that purchasing was a breeze until the order arrived and all sides hadn't been edged but Molly went out of her way to ensure it was rectified. Had another issue where the order had been damaged and wasn't going to be delivered on the day said but again molly went out of her way to ensure it arrived the next day which it did with no issues. Those are the only reasons why I haven't given purchase 5 stars. I will be ordering again soon though
