Medium density fiberboard (MDF) is a nonstructural fiber-based panel that is composed of wood fibers bonded together with resin under heat and pressure. The fibers (either from rice straw or other woody materials) were refined using defibrated or refiner before mixing it with resin and wax.
What is MDF good for?
due to its non-directional grain structure, MDF is ideal for cutting, machining and drilling without splinters or chipping. The smooth surface makes it a good choice for simple interior design pieces that will be painted, cabinets, shelving, mouldings etc.
What is rice straw?
Rice straw is produced as a byproduct of rice production at harvest. Rice straw is removed with the rice grains during harvest and it ends up being piled or spread out in the field depending if it was harvested manually or using machines. Ratio of straw to paddy ranges from 0.7-1.4 depending on the variety and growth.
Can you recycle MDF?
The recycling of MDF is achieved by soaking the pre-shredded MDF chips within a liquid medium and then heating to around 90oC. At this temperature the bonding resin is hydrolysed, freeing the wood fibres for effective recovery and re-use.
