Hardboard (HB) is high-density fibreboard made from different wood species like for example eucalyptus. The production process of creating hardboards turns sustainable raw materials into natural, recyclable boards. Low energy consumption through manufacturing and versatility of the product makes hardboards desirable on the market. Hardboards can be used for: furniture making, construction, sound-proofing, packaging, displays or car/van interior. These boards can be sanded, painted, perforated or varnished. Betanzos HB boards are smooth on one side and rough on the other. Visit one of our showrooms in Dublin Finglas & Ballymount or Tralee to find out more about sheets in Ireland!
Wood-based hardboards can be used in a wide variety of applications like drawer bottoms, furniture backs, panels, walls, ceilings, floor-levelling bases, construction frameworks, food containers for transport, product displays or industrial packaging. Depending on needs these can be supplied as natural/raw or have a topcoat. These sheets are recyclable and biodegradable because of their wood-based composition. Hardboards are made of wood panels that undergo thermal treatment - a process from which their stability, durability, and physical-mechanical resistance properties are obtained. Moisture is balanced out in the process and the panels are cut to size.
