Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF) is made of very fine wood fibers that are used under great pressure. Particleboard is a combination of wood chips, shavings, fibers, and glues.

In comparison to cost, Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF) is costlier as compare to Particle Board, as relatively inexpensive waste wood fire rated board made by combing and heat pressing sawdust and resin. There was a study conducted by D.C. Wong and R.A. Kozak in their Forest Products Journal, where they have mentioned that maximum furniture stuff and storage cabinets produced by MDF laminated boards.

Comparison between various other features of MDF Vs Particleboard

Features Medium Density Fibreboard Particleboard
Asset MDF is not that hard as plywood and can easily be damaged, fi when handling roughly. Particleboard is very light weighted plywood, it cannot hold heavy loads.
Shape Deformity The moisture content in MDF boards may change the subject to dimensional changes. This type may expand too much due to moisture.
Nails holding Capacity Due to its fine particles. MDF doesn’t hold screws very well and stripping. Due to its softer and brittle composition particle boards may hold up well against nails and screws, which could fall apart.


In terms of fire-rated board selection, MDF is more reductant as compare to particleboard, due to its black moisture resistance, whereas Particleboards are more easily prone to fire typically dependent upon the quality as well depending upon the regulatory requirements.

Hence, a Processed Forest product offers a high range of panels manufactured with an A1 rating. Untreated laminated boards panels such as MDF, plywood, Particleboard, etc.
