Research & Development into Medium Density Fibreboard powder coatings began in 1995 and in the last 25 years, we have become a strong industry leader. Our paint is often durable enough to outlast current trends offering an outstanding return on investment. Over the years we have painted for a number of well-known clients including, but not limited to Shoppers Drug Mart, Alpine, and Cadbury. There are many who claim to have the process perfected, we are one of the few that actually have.
Through vigorous R&D we can offer designers the opportunity to have MDF coated. Under the right circumstances, we have the ability to offer our renowned turnaround of up to 5000 parts daily, a huge return on investment for your company and business needs.
After your product has been coated a moisture barrier will keep it from warping, adding years of life to the product and a low rejection rate.
MDF Powder Coating
The particles of powder coating are cured at temperatures over 200 degrees Celsius (392 degrees Fahrenheit). Normal wood cannot handle such temperatures, nor is it as conductive as metal.
Medium-density fibreboard, also known as MDF board, consists primarily of debarked coniferous wood broken down into fine fibres. MDF is a wood-based material with a uniform structure both lengthwise and crosswise. Its edges are hard and smooth, making it possible to cut clean profiles.
MDF is an extremely versatile building product, chosen for its strength, affordability, durability, and consistency. An engineered material, made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into fine particles, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and pressing it with high temperature, it’s commonly used in many homes and professional projects, including cabinets, flooring, tradeshow booths and theater set construction.
While cost-effective, MDF absorbs water and other liquids like a sponge. This will cause swelling unless sealed. MDF is also surprisingly heavy, does not hold screws very well, and cannot be stained because it will absorb the liquid.
