MDF(-Platte)
Explanation:
Medium Density Fiberboard (Mitteldichte Holzfaserplatte)

MDF usually remains MDF in German:
(die) MDF-Platte

Holzfasern werden mit Leim vermischt und zu Platten gepresst. Dadurch entsteht ein sehr formstabiler Werkstoff. Bei MDF-Platte wird wasserfester Leim verwendet. Die Fasern werden hoch verdichtet.

Explanation:
sites such as this official US site:

http://www.srs.fs.fed.us/pubs/viewpub.jsp?index=1108

sometimes the first word is written as "middle", especially at many Chinese sites, such as:

http://www.moftec.gov.cn/moftec/company/zhejiang_jiande/zsxm...

Ernst – Wörterbuch der industriellen Technik shows this as "medium fiber building board" = "halbharte Hartfaserplatte" but "MDF" is also often used in German
