Hardboard Perforated: what is it?

Hardboard is a thin board material that can be used, among other things, for back walls of cupboards or other furniture, for levelling floors and as packaging material. This perforated Hardboard from Finland is light in colour. The holes have a diameter (Ø) of 4.8 mm and are 12.7 mm apart centre-to-centre.

Like MDF, hardboard belongs to the family of fibreboards. Due to the structure of the press in which the wood fibres are compressed, hardboard has a smooth and a rough top layer with a copper mesh structure. During the process, the wood fibres are wetted and pressed under high pressure and temperature. As a result, no glue is needed to hold the fibres together. It is only suitable for indoor applications, as it has a suction effect and is therefore not resistant to moisture.

Hardboard is a constructional board. This means that this board material needs the necessary finishing before it can be used for visible work.

Available thicknesses of Hardboard Perforated

With us, you can order high-quality customized hardboard in various thicknesses. You can easily specify the desired thickness in the product configurator. In this way, you can be sure that the board material meets your requirements: both the format and the thickness of the material. The following thicknesses are available: 3 mm.

Machining of Hardboard Perforated sheets

The board consists of wood fibres that are compressed under high pressure. This makes the material easy to process. When milling or sawing, this board material does not splinter. For mounting, you can choose to nail or screw this material.

Are you going to paint this board? Finish the edges with an edge sealer and then sand and paint neatly. Bear in mind that only one side can be finished. It is also important to degrease the board properly.

Specific applications of Hardboard Perforated

Hardboard is an easy-to-process sheet material used for various interior panelling applications. Hardboard is an ideal product for packaging, for levelling floors and as a back wall for various types of furniture or cupboards. The homogeneous structure makes this board, in comparison to other board material, less sensitive to shrinkage and expansion in changing temperatures. Hardboard is not suitable for use in damp rooms or outdoors. It is important to always fix hardboard, otherwise the material will undulate.

Alternatives to standard board
