We offer a range of MDF sheeting varieties which we can cut to any size or shape using our CNC router, delivering a high level of precision and repeatability. Whatever shape you need, we can create it – just send us your drawings, in either CAD format or a sketch, and we can cut it to size for you. In addition to 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 state-of-the-art UV printers, 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.
15mm MDF sheets provide a cost-effective and versatile solution to many projects around the home as well as for commercial projects. MDF is produced from a mix of hard and soft wood chippings and recycled offcuts which are combined with resins to create a hard-wearing but lightweight material. It’s a brilliant option for many projects and delivers stability and strength for any application.
Types of 15mm 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 15mm MDF Sheets
One of the main reasons why MDF sheeting is such a popular material to work with is its affordability and versatility. MDF is a cost-effective wood that can be easily cut down to size and installed using standard tools, taking to glues, screws and nails easily for quick and efficient installation. The smooth surface texture of MDF makes marking this wood up a quick and simple job and it also provides the ideal surface for laminates and veneers for added customisation options. There are several varieties of MDF to choose from, providing different properties for a host of environments, including moisture-resistant MDF and Premier MDF which delivers clear face properties for applications where the appearance of the wood is just as important as the structural integrity. MDF is a material designed for use in interior applications and providing it doesn’t make any direct contact with water, it will deliver a durable result for many years to come. We also offer 6mm MDF and 18mm MDF.
Applications of 15mm MDF Sheets
15mm MDF can be used for cabinetry, shelving, doors and wardrobes, as well as for furniture-making. It’s a popular material for use in storage containers and boxes as well as desks and office décor. It can also be used to great effect in bars and for shopfitting too.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does MDF stand for?
MDF stands for medium-density fibreboard and is an engineered wood-based sheet made by bonding together wood fibres with a synthetic resin adhesive and pressure.
Can I cut MDF by hand?
It is possible to customise your MDF sheeting by cutting it into shape and is a fabulous way to get it to fit around any nook and crannies in your home. We have written a guide for cutting MDF yourself, or we can do it for you, just let us know before placing an order.
How strong is MDF?
MDF is not very strong as it is a compression of multiple fibres, however, it is very dense, and is very durable. As a rule, if you require a sheet to hold a large weight, order a larger thickness, or contact us and we can assist you directly.
Can I paint on MDF?
Often chosen for its inexpensive cost to create furniture, MDF can be painted to add some character or personality to any piece. We have written a guide to assist you in painting your MDF.
Can you waterproof MDF?
You can create waterproof MDF by adding a high-quality wood sealant, varnish or stain or moisture-resistant paint so that your project can withstand threats of moisture and humidity. For applying any paint of coating please see our paint guide.
What are the best screws for MDF?
To screw into MDF you will require specific screws to prevent splitting. We recommend using screws that are purposely made for MDF as generic screws may damage the sheeting.
Does MDF warp?
MDF is prone to warping and bending when moisture is concerned. That could be as a result of liquid affecting the sheet, or even from an uneven temperature causing bowing and warping.
