We provide a range of different types of MDF sheeting which can be cut to any size or shape using our CNC router for a high level of precision and repeatability. Whatever shape you need for your chosen project, we can create it – all you need to do is send us your drawings, in either CAD format or a sketch, and we can cut it to size for you. Alongside cutting any shape or curve, our CNC router can be used for rebating, pocketing and hole cutting on MDF sheets, as well as virtually any other sheet material. We also offer the option to add laser cutting and CNC engraving services, and mitred edges to your MDF sheets.
Using the latest in UV printing technology, we can print full sheets of MDF in one go, providing a consistent finish at a much faster rate than painting. We currently only list 8x4 sheets (2440x1220mm) but we’re able to purchase and cut sheets of up to 2000x3000mm, so contact our team today to discuss your individual requirements. With optional next day delivery, your products can be with you quickly and for larger orders, we have our own transport service which operates throughout most of the UK. If you have an ongoing project taking place, get in contact with us to discuss bulk discounts and regular supply orders.
12mm MDF is versatile and cost-effective, making an ideal substrate for a number of projects in and around the home, as well as for commercial settings. It is made from a mix of sawdust, hard and soft wood chippings, and recycled offcuts which are combined with resins to produce a tough yet lightweight sheet material. MDF comes in a variety of types to suit different applications, making it a great option for a range of projects.
Types of 12mm MDF Uses
There are different varieties of MDF with distinctive properties, depending on the application you’re using it for.
- Moisture resistant MDF can be used in areas of homes or businesses where moisture or humidity is an issue, such as bathrooms, kitchens or storage areas.
- Premier MDF sheeting is a high-quality material that makes use of superior wood refining technology and high-grade resins for greater consistency both in terms of thickness and quality. This form of MDF is best-suited to furniture, toys or cabinetry, delivering a reliable and uniform result.
- Fire retardant MDF is commonly used in schools, hospitals, offices or cinemas and can provide up to 60 minutes of fire protection when used in applications such as doors, kick plates or partitions.
Advantages of 12mm MDF Sheets
MDF is a cost-effective material that is easy to cut down to size and also takes glues, screws and nails well, so it’s an easy wood to fix into place. The clear and smooth surface means it’s easy to mark up for cutting and drilling, as well as providing the perfect surface for veneers and laminates for a professional finish. The different varieties of MDF make it well suited to a host of environments, from moisture-resistant MDF to Medite Premier MDF which has great face properties that means it can be used in applications where the wood will be on show. MDF is designed to be used in interior projects and applications and providing it doesn’t come into direct contact with water, it provides a stable and durable finish. We offer other popular sizes like 9mm MDF and 18mm MDF.
Applications of 12mm MDF Sheets

It can also be used for shopfitting and bars as well as for office spaces as a lightweight and affordable way of creating desks and storage areas. 12mm MDF provides great stability and strength that can be used with veneers and laminates easily for infinite customisation options.

Is mirrored acrylic like normal mirror?
Mirrored acrylic is a flexible material, and needs to be attached to a perfectly flat surface. We recommend attaching it to MDF or something similar, making sure the adhesive is spread in a thin even layer across the acrylic. we also recommend using the 5mm thick acrylic as it is more rigid.
Can you cut any shape?
Yes, in acrylic. We will shortly be able to also cut any shape in polycarbonate as well.
What's your standard radius corner?
20mm, but we can cut to your requirements.
How many holes do I need in my acrylic?
1 per corner should be sufficient for smaller pieces. You might want to consider an extra hole in the middle if your sheet is larger.
Can I cut acrylic?
Yes, you can. Just take it slow and easy.
Can I put acrylic behind a hob?
Not if it is gas or electric. You need a gap of 5cm between an induction hob and the acrylic.
Do you fit the acrylic?
No, we don't. We do provide some templates which should help you to take your measurements. The acrylic is easy to install by any competent DIYer.
