Is MDF biodegradable?

A new biodegradable and recyclable form of medium density fibreboard (MDF) has been created that could dramatically reduce the problem of future waste. However, as MDF cannot be recycled, waste MDF either has to be incinerated or ends up in landfill.

Is MDF formaldehyde free?

The atmosphere created by machining or sanding MDF board contains a mixture of softwood dust and hardwood dust (if it is present). In addition, there will also be free formaldehyde, dust particles onto which formaldehyde is adsorbed and potentially, the resin binder itself and its derivatives.

Is MDF highly flammable?

Fire & Explosion Hazard: MDF is flammable but difficult to ignite. Wood dust may ignite at temperatures greater than 204ºC and high concentration in air (>60g/m3) may spontaneously explode. The ingredients are bonded under heat and pressure.
