Like MDF, board belongs to the family of fibreboards. During the process, wood fibres are compressed under high pressure and temperature with glue. The recycled fibres make this board material environmentally friendly and sustainable.
Use board for your next job
Hardboard is suitable for decorative purposes and can only be used indoors. Whereas the top layer is water-repellent, the edges of fibreboards have a suction effect. Board can therefore not be used in damp spaces.
Board is often used in furniture construction or for shop fitting. In addition, it is a popular board material for use in exhibition stands. Do not use (hard) board for constructive purposes; the material was not developed for this purpose.
The variants of hardboard
There are several varieties of hardboard available. Hardboard is completely biodegradable, so the impact on the environment is limited. The back of the board is always rough.
