Stronger, Lighter, Sustainable
20 Years of Research
Perfecting Panel Boards
The research and development team at Great Plains MDF has spent more than 20 years developing and testing various agristraw fibres for panel boards.
Strong & Sustainable
Farm Tough Fibreboard
Our scientists and engineers have crafted what we believe is the perfect formula of strength, sustainability and cost effectiveness using wheat straw grown on the Canadian prairies. We like to call our MDF “Farm Tough.”
Innovation + Familiarity
Wheat is a winner
Our innovative medium density fibreboard matches the performance of wood-based MDF in:
It has the added benefits of:
- Formaldehyde-free adhesive
- Improved Moisture resistence
- Annually renewable straw supply
- Lower density (10% – 14% lighter)
- Lower VOCs (volatile organic compounds)
- New panel sizes and thickness (including 2.0mm & 2.5mm)
