Types of MDF
Alexandria Moulding offers three types of MDF mouldings: MDF Raw, MDF Pre-primed, and paper wrapped MDF. Each type offers different benefits.
MDF Raw is an excellent substrate for painting. It requires a primed base coat, then a sanding and then one or two finishing coats depending on preference. Water based or oil based paints and primers can be used. This is a high quality product with a low price tag.
MDF Pre-primed has one step finished for the customer. Just apply the finishing coat, or coats depending on preference. Either water or oil based paints can be used.
Paper Wrapped MDF can be installed “as is” or can be painted. The paper used in this process is an exceptionally high quality re-coatable paper. This paper will accept the adherence of water or oil based paints.
