High and Medium Density Fiberboard for Flooring
High Density Fiberboard for Flooring
Also referred to as hardboard, a high-density fiberboard for flooring (HDF) is
of engineered wood product. It is made from wood fiber extracted from chips and
pulped wood waste. High-density fiberboard for flooring is similar but much
and denser than particle board or medium density fiberboard for flooring (MDF).
has a density greater than 50 pounds per cubic foot or 800 kg per cubic meter.
makes for a perfect stabilizing material for laminate floors and engineered
Like other types of fiberboard for flooring, a high density fiberboard for
be used outside because it absorbs water. A tempered form of hardboard is made
adding oil that becomes a polymer when the board is formed under high
and pressure. This gives it resistance against moisture, hardness, and
tempered hardboard can be used in construction siding.
Medium density fiberboard for flooring
Medium-density fiberboard for flooring or MDF is also an engineered product. It
similar to particle board but more dense. MDF has a density of 600-800 kg/m³.
made up of wood wastage fibers glued together with resin or glue, under heat
pressure. It also doesn't warp or swell easily in high humidity areas like
or washrooms. Once again, these characteristics make it an ideal core layer
for laminate flooring and engineered floors.
Medium-density fiberboard for flooring is regularly used in the making of
cabinetry, wall panels, shelving, storage units, decorative molding, and doors.
to its insular qualities in sound and heat, MDF, has also been used in acoustic
enclosures such as loudspeakers and subwoofers.
