MDO (Medium-density overlay) plywood is an all-purpose, specialty plywood that can be used for a large variety of projects and applications. It is built for exterior use but can also be used anywhere regular plywood is used. It can often be confused with MDF (medium-density fiberboard), and though the two plywoods are similar, they are not the same. MDO is much more versatile, cuts better, and is generally a higher quality than MDF.
MDO is often referred to as signboard. Because of its resistance to weather and moisture, and its smooth painting surface, it is perfect for making outdoor signs.
One of the great things about MDO plywood is that, while more expensive, it offers more durability than other plywoods, especially for outdoor use. There are other factors that make it a better choice than other types of plywoods like MDF.
