FINSA Hidrofugo MDF Details

Our new FINSA Hidrofugo moisture-resistant MDF is a phenomenal sheet boasting exceptional low absorbing qualities beating other moisture-resistant and standard grade options in every possible way.

FINSA Hidrofugo MDF boards are highly resistant to moisture and highlight phenomenal machining qualities trumping any sheet that could have otherwise been interchanged with a moisture-resistant sheet.

FINSA has gained an international reputation as an environmentally conscious brand committed to sustainability in the forestry industry. With certifications proving their conscious efforts, our FINSA range offers a premium ethically aware option that never compromises on quality.

The most important characteristics of these products are high stability, low swelling and absorption and excellent machining quality. As FINSA Hidrofugo MDF sheets are highly resistant to moisture, they can be used in more severe conditions than standard MDF.

However, in environments where there is intermittent contact with water, such as kitchens, bathrooms and other building applications, it is important to take special precautions during the finishing process, especially in instances where the edges are left bare. This can be done such as by using edge banding to seal the edges from water. We suggest this to prevent a possible seepage of water into the superior moisture resistant core.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is moisture-resistant MDF?

With a slight green tint, moisture-resistant MDF, also known as MR MDF, contains a moisture-repellent resin that provides increased resistance to humidity. As a result of this, our MR MDF is ideal for use in high humidity areas or areas of high moisture.

Is all MDF moisture resistant?

Not all MDF is moisture-resistant. MDF is a porous material, and moisture-resistant sheets prevent the MDF sheets from warping or being affected by moisture.

Is all moisture-resistant MDF green?

Typically with a green tint, moisture resistant MDF is well-suited for use in environments that are prone to humidity and high moisture levels, such as bathrooms, kitchens or utility rooms.

Can you paint moisture-resistant 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.

How do you waterproof MDF panels?

Moisture-resistant MDF sheets are already resistant to moist areas and humidity, however, you can improve its hydrophobia by coating it in an appropriate waterproof primer or paint. 

What is waterproof MDF called?

Moisture-resistant MDF, also known as MR MDF, contains a moisture-repellent resin that provides increased resistance to humidity. As a result of this, our MR MDF is ideal for use in high humidity areas or areas of high moisture.

Do you need to prime moisture-resistant MDF?

Moisture-resistant MDF is easier to paint than other MDF types, however, we still recommend using a primer to ensure an even flat paint coverage. We are equipped with providing your sheets primed for you saving you time and effort.

Should I nail or screw 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.

What happens if MDF gets wet?

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.

Does MDF absorb moisture?

MDF is a porous material that takes on water like a sponge, so our moisture-resistant MDF is built to withstand humid and moist conditions allowing continuous use in those wetter environments like bathrooms or utility cupboards.
