MDF Substrate Board Specifications

We use premium quality CARB Phase II medium density fiberboard (MDF) as a wood substrate for our powder coated components. MDF is made from 100% recycled content and is stronger than particleboard and other types of substrates.

MDF has low porosity and a consistent surface that readily accepts powder finish. Its moisture content is an ideal electrical conductor, which is a critical component in the wood powder coating process.

Environmental Qualities

We use the two highest grades of CARB Phase II MDF. In addition, you can specify the following types of wood, which can contribute to LEED points:

Board Thickness

Choose from standard board thicknesses ranging from 1/2″ to 1 1/4″ depending on the finish type and shape of your part. If you require a thickness outside of this range, contact us to discuss your project further.
