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, when you place your order 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. There’s also the option to make use of our laser cutting and CNC engraving services and add mitred edges to your MDF sheets.
Using state-of-the-art UV printers, we have the capability to print full sheets of MDF in one go, providing a consistent finish at a much faster rate than painting.

22mm MDF sheets are the perfect material to use in applications where you require a stable and durable material that’s also relatively lightweight and affordable. MDF is produced by combining hard and soft wood chippings and recycled offcuts with resins to create sheets that are immensely popular in a host of industries. This material can be used for cabinets and wardrobes through to bar and shop fitting, providing excellent versatility.
Types of 22mm 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-grade 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.

Advantages of 22mm MDF Sheets
MDF sheets are a popular material to work with for a host of different projects and applications, as it is versatile and affordable. MDF can be cut down to size quickly and easily using standard DIY tools, so it’s perfect for DIY projects around the home, as well as being easy to install or fix into place using glues, nails or screws – at 22mm thick, this particular thickness of MDF is better suited to the latter in order to provide a secure installation. MDF can also be used to great effect with laminates and veneers as it provides a smooth surface for a professional finish. 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. The term MDF is a generic term that refers simply to the type of wood and not a specific product – there are, in fact, several types of MDF to choose from that can be used in different environments to make the best use of their individual properties. We also offer 18mm MDF and 15mm MDF.

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.
