Hardboard

Blumsom Timber Centre stock a range of Hardboard panels and are a cheaper option than plywood where strength is not required. It is made from wood fibre which is extracted from chips and pulped wood waste. In the production process the pulp is exploded under pressure. Heat and steam is applied to leave fine, fluffy brown fibres. These fibres are transformed into mats, which are held together with lignum and other glues. The mats are then pressed between steam-heated metal plates to give grainless sheets with one smooth, glossy surface and one textured surface. To prevent warping, moisture is added in a humidification chamber.
