These 3mm laser compatible black painted MDF sheets, measuring 600mm x 400mm, offer all the same qualities as our standard MDF lines but with a nice black finish. This comes into its own when laser engraving, as there will be a nice contrast between the black finish and the underlying MDF material. One side of these MDF sheets are painted and the other is a standard MDF finish.
Our laser MDFs are EU class E1, which means low formaldehyde emissions. It is this low formaldehyde emission that makes this MDF suitable for laser cutting.
As wood is a natural product, there is often a crook or bow to the sheet. The natural twist might be in excess of 10mm (see below - Tolerances and Caution).
This product conforms to E1 (low) formaldehyde levels as well as also complying with the lower levels required by CARB phase 2 (CARB Phase 2 compliant <0.11ppm).
This product is often described as 'Laser Grade' MDF but there is no official classification for this. We believe that E1 conforming MDF is the safest and best MDF for using in a laser cutter.

- When laser engraving, the black paint finish provides a great contrast to the MDF underneath.
