Issues

MDF is not naturally conductive

MDF quality varies between suppliers and grades

Powder attraction/ Moisture content

Outgassing and pin holes to appear in the powder coating as it gels and cures

Higher moisture content - substrate more conductive, but causes edge splitting and cracking

Conventional mfg: Extruder at 200 F

Board thickness

But no worries. We got your back ! We provide MDF expert consulting
