When it comes to value, what really counts is not how much the HDF costs, but how much it costs to use it. Not all High Density – MDF panels are alike, and may differ by wood species, fiber size, binders, density, and consistency. All of these factors have a significant impact on key elements of your processing costs including:
• Cutting tool life
• Machine center throughout the speed and amp load
• Machined profile quality as it relates to the need for sanding, filling, and other steps prior to finishing
• Defect rates
The superior uniformity and overall panel integrity of our “Ultimate Core” HDF outperforms other MDF products by allowing our customers to move it through their process faster while achieving higher quality results and lower production costs.
Ultimate Core HDF products are prized by woodworkers for their exceptionally flat, smooth, and unblemished surfaces. Our products are made from high-quality inland species of western softwoods known for their low abrasive content and light color and consistent results with a variety of finish materials.
The ultimate core provides a 52lb density and a 185lb internal bond (based on ¾” thickness) resulting in the highest-rated HDF available on the current market for strength and consistency. The linear expansion limit is also 25% less than the industry-accepted ANSI A208.2-2016 value of 0.33%.
Pre-finished surfaces reduce labor time, increasing productivity and efficiency in fabrication, and prevents bottlenecks common at the spray booth.
