Maximum sheet size: 600mm x 300mm.
Thickness: 3mm, 6mm.
Finish: Smooth matte finish that is the same on both sides.
– Great for prototyping as it is very low cost.
– Even density throughout, making it ideal for interlocking designs.
– Very stable (no warping).
– Can easily be painted for use as a final product.
– Doesn’t need peeling (no tape).
– No protective tape which means smoke marks will show.
– Cut edges are darker than solid wood due to the high resin content.
– Not a big contrast between engraved and not engraved areas.
Laser Cutting: MDF cuts well in the laser cutter. Laser cutting MDF puts relatively low thermal stress on the material, leaving an un-burnt, smooth edge. Smoke is generated along the cut line leaving the edges slightly darkened.
Laser Etching: MDF etches well in the laser cutter and is able to hold very fine details when etched. Though it does not leave a high contrast between etched and not etched areas. We recommend a minimum line width of 0.2mm or 0.5mm if inverted.
