Composite flat boards
Unfinished MDF & Melamine Chipboard

Unfinished MDF

MDF is a medium and high-density fibreboard. It produced good results in the most demanding machining applications.

Its high density enables it to be used as a structural element with good holding for screws, nails and staples.

It makes an excellent base for all types of coating as an alternative to chipboard and beech plywood.

Melamin chipboard

Chipboard is particleboard (untreated wood) coated in decorative paper impregnated with melamine resin.

Chipboard can be used untreated as a base for other surface coatings for specific workbenches.

It is lighter than MDF and beech plywood.
