PLYWOOD – MDO MEDIUM DENSITY OVERLAY

MDO is produced with a high-quality thermosetting resin-impregnated fiber surface bonded to one or both sides under heat and pressure to create an exterior-grade plywood panel. Specially selected veneer directly beneath the fiber overlay provides a smooth surface that is ideal for painting. MDO is manufactured with waterproof resins that meet or exceed all veneer-grade, adhesion, and construction requirements. Sign writers find MDO is ideal and the panels of choice for Exterior Signs.

  • Perfect for interior or exterior applications requiring a very smooth finished look when painted
  • Very tough, durable fiber overlay
  • High strength and dimensional stability
  • Excellent thermal-insulating properties of real wood
  • Cuts without end splitting and slivering
