HDF means high density fibreboard. HDF boards consist of fine fibre wood fibres pressed with resins and adhesives under high pressure. The density of an HDF board should be at least 850 kg/m³. Due to their high strength and low material thickness, HDF boards are mainly used as coreboard for laminate flooring as well as for multi-layer, modular floor coverings. Furthermore, EGGER type “HDF Swell barrier+”, HDF Aqua+ and UWF coreboards are especially resistant against the effects of moisture, therefore offering increased protection against edge swelling.
