Super-Cut MDF is an exclusively manufactured product of the Bosley Company, for value engineering. Super-Cut is an engineered, solid wood product that cuts, paints, and nails like poplar, while exceeding the durability of poplar. We have over 100 profiles in our standard Super-Cut catalog available, while, in addition, creating countless custom profiles for our customers.
The true value of this product is found in cost savings. Even custom profiles, which may require tooling, are available at a savings of 20 to 60 percent the expense of the same profile in solid poplar.

Please use high solids acrylic primer, as we do not recommend water-based primer. After priming, most woods have a rising of the grain, where wood fiber can occur, and should be removed before proceeding with the next step. After priming and before the next coat of paint, use a Scotch Brite pad to knock off the fuzz. We recommend 3M #7447 pads. If sanding is required, use 220 grit or higher. Baseboard flat areas and D4S are ready for a coat of paint. Only the milled area of the profile is where you prime and Scotch Brite.
Super-Cut MDF should be laid flat on 2 x 4’s off the floor, in a dry area. Just like wood moulding, humidity and temperature controls should be met prior to installation. Store materials indoors, in ventilated areas, with a constant but minimum temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and maximum relative humidity of 35 to 55 percent. Maintain interior installation areas at 70 degrees Fahrenheit, and 50 to 55 percent relative humidity.
