MDF board is a commonly used particle board. Moisture Resistant MDF is used in places with high humidity levels. In comparison to standard MDF, Moisture Resistant MDF (or MR MDF) contains a moisture-repellent resin which gives it a better moisture resistant rating. However, MR MDF shouldn't be mistaken to be water resistant as it's still prone to swelling and warping if in direct contact with such elements.

Application Moisture Resistant MDF can be used in places such as; kitchens, bathrooms, boiler rooms and laundry rooms. Its moisture-repellent properties lend it advancement above standard MDF material. Can be cut, moulded and manipulated using industrial power tools or general hand and power tools. Making sure that all edges are sanded smooth after cutting will provide a clean and smooth finish when applying paints. Doing so prevents any harmful fibres being released from the board. In terms of fixings, screws and biscuit dimensions should be taken into consideration, in order to maintain a clean finish.
