MDF sheet

MDF boards are versatile strong boards with a smooth surface allowing for a precision finish, especially suited for model making projects.


  • Sheet size 245 x 500mm (sheet dimensions could vary by up to 5mm).
  • Various thicknesses available* (see drop down box).
  • Smooth on both sides, rigid, sandable and an ideal material when using mini electric tools.
  • Can be painted with both water based and spirit based paints.
  • It is recommended that MDF is sealed before spraying with spirit based paints, this can be done by using diluted PVA or a primer.
  • Glue with PVA, UHU and super glues.
  • Always wear a dust mask when cutting and sanding MDF.


*The 1mm sheets of MDF are supplied to us as 1mm, we have found there may be +/- 0.2mm tolerance but mostly exactly 1mm. We regret we can’t accept responsibility if not exactly 1mm.


Can become flexible if laser cut like this 3mm piece we made into a desk tidy.
