Our Range of Oil Tempered Hardboard
What is Oil Tempered Hardboard Used for?
Oil tempered hardboard can act as an extra layer of durability under furniture and units such as counter tops and drawers, or in general construction of units such as cabinets and wardrobes. As well as being a staple in these constructions, oil tempered hardboard is also a cost-effective method to protect any existing flooring from damage while other construction work is taking place.
Hardboard is cut in to thinner sheets (usually 1/8 or 1/4 thick), making the final product more lightweight and providing more flexibility than if other panels were used. After being primed and sealed, the panels can be customised with paint or vinyl, to provide a custom finish for any fixture. One side of the panel is smooth (usually the outward facing side), while the coarse side provides extra grip along with being nailed down.
