Veneered MDF is made from quality wood veneers that are attached to premium fibreboards of average densities. The boards contain a 0.5mm veneer coating on both sides. Even though the veneer coat is used to simulate normal solid wood, there are other reasons for veneer finish on the MDF. The manufacturers are able to create wood options that can be used in the same way as solid woods. These options are availed to the consumer as safer and affordable options. The veneer is used to protect the fibreboard and make it safe for the user.
