Moisture Resistant MDF

Shop for moisture resistant MDF boards online with The Plastic People. Moisture resistant MDF, also known as MR MDF, contains a resin that is moisture-repellent, making it the perfect wood alternative if you're worried about humidity.

This makes MR MDF the perfect option for bathrooms or kitchens, known for its durability and strength, it can handle rooms known for their humidity. This makes it’s particularly useful for bathroom panelling or kitchen cabinets.

We provide MR MDF in a range of thicknesses from 6mm to 25mm thicknesses. When choosing which thickness to use in your project, consider how it will be used and whether or not it needs to bear weight.

If you aren’t sure which thickness is best for you, please get in touch and we will be able to provide some guidance. If you need flame retardant MDF that can be found here.

NB: The 6mm and 9mm Moisture Resistant MDF is Green throughout its construction whilst the 12mm is sandwiched (see image).

Moisture Resistant MDF cut to size

We offer custom cutting for your MR MDF sheets to save you the hassle of doing it yourself. We can cut your sheets to any size or shape. We can also do custom cutouts, so that when your MR MDF sheets are delivered to your door you’ll be ready to get started right away.

What’s the difference between MR MDF and normal MDF?

MR MDF has been coated in a moisture-repellent resin before it’s delivered to you – hence the name!

Why use Moisture Resistant MDF?

If you use wood in humid areas, then there’s a good chance it will split or swell over time. Moisture resistant MDF is designed to function in these humid areas, and is often a cheaper alternative to wood.

How water resistant is MR MDF?

As the name suggests, moisture resistant MDF isn’t fully waterproof. You can’t submerge it in water or use it in areas where it would be frequently splashed by water – meaning it isn’t suitable for outdoors where it will be rained on.

What is the thickness of MR MDF?

Our MR MDF comes in a variety of thickness – from 6mm to 25mm, so you can pick depending on what you need.

Do I need to prime MR MDF before gloss?

In short, yes. If you’re planning on painting MDF, both water resistant or not, it should be primed first. These seals the MDF so the top coat of paint sits nicely on top instead of being absorbed into the material.
