MDF plates are made with different characteristics, which can vary depending on end use. As an example quoted, in addition to the "standard" plates, FR (fire resistant) and plaques MR (moisture resistant, which are used in outdoor environments). There are also plates of greater mechanical strength (DH), made with a larger amount of fibers and resins, which allows them to applications requiring greater resistance to bending or impact. The thicknesses of the plates vary from 3 mm to 60 mm, with the thickest used in structural or decorative elements of architecture and furniture (feet turned to the tables, for example). MDF is basically offered to the market with three finishes: raw plates, plates with low-pressure laminated flooring and plates coated finish foil. The raw plates are supplied to the user in nature so that it can be done to finish the pieces by painting, coating with PVC or hot stamping. The coated with low pressure laminate plates are produced by superimposing a sheet of special paper, impregnated with melamine resin, which is fused by pressure and temperature to the panel of MDF, resulting in a plate already finished. You can take just one side, allowing the user to machine the uncoated side and finish it with paint or PVC coating. The coated finish foil plates are produced by adding a layer of paper glued to the plate, resulting in a finished product already. This film can be printed with woodgrain patterns or colors. (source: Wikipedia)
