Hardboard is a type of unfinished composite panel made from residual wood fiber. Value engineered for each application, hardboard is often substantially less expensive than comparable substrates. With no grain and a uniform thickness, density, and appearance, hardboard resists scuffing and abrasion as well as changes in temperature and humidity. Commonly used for pre-finished paneling, perforated board, underlayment, office and residential furniture and door skins. Hardboard has a uniform thickness, density and appearance and has no grain. It resists marring, scuffing and abrasion, as well as changes in temperature and humidity. Hardboard can be cut, routed, shaped and drilled with standard woodworking tools. In addition, hardboard can be securely glued or fastened with screws, staples or nails. Hardboard panels can be laminated with paper overlays, plastic laminates and veneers.
Hardboard has no added formaldehyde and negligible VOC.
