Valhalla Laser would like to explain a little bit about the MDF we use.
The MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) is composed of 100% western white softwood that has a consistent light sandy color. The purity and long fibers associated with this material allow for deep detailed profiling and smooth machining for easier and better finishing. An added benefit of the MDF we use is the light color of the MDF reduces color show-through when painting. No Formaldehyde is added to this process. This flat density profile allows for heavy Shaping, Routering, Turning, and Cutting with results in the surface which can be laminate, paintable and staining.
One of the primary uses of MDF is high quality furniture and cabinetry. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) voted to pass the toughest, most comprehensive product standards in the world for formaldehyde emissions from composite wood. Currently, the CARB regulations Phase II limits for thin MDF became effective on January 1, 2012, which limits emissions to no more than 0.13 parts per million. The MDF we use meets or exceeds CARB Phase 2 standards and meets CARB NAF standards.
When using MDF with a laser, a smoke residue is produced which you can either sand off or paint over. With this MDF it is not necessary to seal before painting; though Jamie recommends both sealing and painting (both sides) on her more detailed designs. For ornaments and pins, she does not seal (the MDF accepts paint beautifully) but will apply paint to both sides, and of course, varnish as per manufacturers recommendation. You might want to try a small project or piece of MDF and see how it works for you. ----------------------------
