MDF (the MDF) - in German - Medium Density Fiberboard
MDF is made of very fine sawdust, which are fastened together lignin (natural material), and paraffin.So MDF - clean material.This material lends itself to fine processing, which gives great possibilities in the manufacture of showy parts in furniture, for example, carved cabinets kitchen, ornate headboard - all MDF.MDF has all the advantages tree, but is much cheaper, and lasts longer.But, unfortunately, MDF - still quite expensive material, because its production is clearly does not meet the demand in Russia.
