Hardboard is similar to particle board and medium-density fiberboard but is denser and much stronger and harder because it is made out of exploded wood fibers that have been highly compressed.
It differs from particleboard in that the bonding of the wood fibers requires no additional materials, although resin is often added. Unlike particle board, it will not split or crack.
Hardboard has long been used in furniture, but it is also popular for use in the construction industry and with trades as a temporary floor protector.
It is produced in either a wet or dry process. The wet process leaves only one smooth side while the dry processed hardboard is smooth on both sides.
Hardboard is excellent for versatility for manufacturing furniture. It is easy to coat and can easily be perforated, cut, grooved, drilled, bored, cut to size, bent and glued. It also has an excellent performance for direct painting and printing
