MDO Plywood Signboard

MDO (Medium-Density Overlaid) signboard consists of a 100% Douglas fir plywood panel, composed with waterproof  adhesives and overlaid with resin-impregnated paper on one or 2 faces which create a panel suitable for sign making, among other uses. 

The impregnated paper overlay combined with a 2-step panel repair process ensures a reliable, paintable finish with no grain transfer from the plywood substrate. Printing processes such as screen-printing, and direct digital printing, along with traditional painting methods are all well served by MDO sign panels. MDO panels are not just limited to sign purposes; anywhere that a solid, smooth, dependable painted surface is required is a candidate for MDO. Typical applications are exterior signage and billboards, furniture, cabinetry, displays, fixtures, shelving, partitions, soffit & fascia, truck body & trailer liners and doors.
