Veneered MDF board is manufactured from high-quality wood veneers firmly attached to medium density fibreboards. Usually, the panels have 0.5mm veneer coating on the two sides.

They provide more stability compared to solid wood and are less vulnerable to fluctuations in humidity and heat. So, unlike solid wood, which bends and warps over time, MDF veneer sheets don’t twist and remain straight throughout their lifespan.
