Standard Hardboard Sheets


Hardboard is a traditional board commonly used for floor covering and levelling of old floor boards. The clean smooth surface coupled with a more rigid and gripping under side gives a solid base and a blank canvas allowing for the application of various floor coverings of your choice. A Ring Shanked Nail or Staple will still be required to ensure the longevity of the placement of your Hardboard on any permanent fixtures. The fine wood fibres used in the manufacturing of Hardboard makes it a very cost effective choice, this also makes the product extremely versatile for a number of functions and applications.

Examples of these applications include floor covering, general decorative projects, signs, displays, doors, panels, backing for wardrobes, cabinets and bottom of drawers, etc. Hardboard is pressed to become extremely thin, which makes it very adaptable to conventional wood working tools and offers flexibility that some boards may not be able to provide, making it the ideal choice for certain projects. The face of the board can be painted to customise any board for furniture or signage, or even as an alternative to traditional flooring.

Hardboard is a tough, smooth and light panel made of compressed wood fibres using pressure and heat.

Hardboard is very strong and dense and often used for furniture, cabinets and countertops. Hardboard can be used for many other things as well.

Is hardboard easy to cut?

Yes, hardboard is very easy to cut. Due to its smooth surface, it can be painted really easily. Choose a blade with numerous evenly spaced teeth this type of blade will decrease the chances of the hardboard splintering.

Most wood boards have some give or bend to them. If you’re looking for something flexible then take a look at flexible plywood or flexible MDF.

Hardboard absorbs water so it’s not the best choice to use it outside due to water retention. Tempered hardboard is the better choice for outside usage.

Hardboard needs to be conditioned by scrubbing water into the rough side of the hardboard sheet. The sheet should then be laid flat on top of one another and wait 24 hours before use.
