MDF Medium-Density Fibreboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure. MDF is more dense than plywood. It is made up of separated fibers and can be used as a building material similar in application to plywood. It is much more dense than normal particle board.
Elliotis Ply

 

 

Elliotis Plywood is an inexpensive plywood panel well suited for utility applications. Elliotis Pine is constructed with a exterior glue to help resist moisture.

FE Ply

 

 

Far Eastern Hardwood Plywood is an exterior grade plywood available in a range of thickness and can be used in exterior and interior applications

OSB

Oriented Strand Board, also known as OSB, waferboard, Sterling board or Exterior board and SmartPly, is an engineered wood product formed by layering strands (flakes) of wood in specific orientations. In appearance, it may have a rough and variegated surface with the individual strips lying unevenly across each other. Different qualities in terms of thickness, panel size, strength and rigidity can be imparted to the OSB by changes in the manufacturing process. OSB panels have no internal gaps or voids and are water-resistant, although they do require additional membranes to achieve impermeability to water and are not recommended for exterior use. The finished product has similar properties to plywood but is uniform and cheaper.
Ext Birch Ply

 

 

Birch Plywood is characterised by its excellent strength, stiffness and resistance to creep. It has a high planar shear strength and impact resistance, which make it especially suitable for heavy-duty floor and wall structures.
