What board thicknesses are available?

The thickness of the board depends on the type of board:

  • Hardboard is 3 millimetres thick
  • Lacquerboard is 3 millimetres thick
  • Softboard can be from 8 millimetres to 30 millimetres thick

The available thicknesses of board all fall under fibreboards

The available board thicknesses that can be ordered from us do not affect the material itself. Board is a fibre board. This means that the boards consist of compressed wood fibres. This applies to all available board thicknesses. During the production process, the wood fibres are wetted and then compressed. This is how a board is finally made. No glue is added to the product during the pressing process. However, the production process is adapted to the thickness of the board. Board boards are therefore in all cases 100 per cent fibre boards. Several types of board fall under fibre boards, including the popular MDF. Fibreboards are especially known for their good machinability.

Board is intended for indoor use only

You can work with board for a wide variety of projects. It is an excellent material that is easy to work with. However, you should bear in mind that you can only use board indoors, in dry rooms. Board boards are fibre boards. As said, these consist of wood fibres that are pressed together. This creates a strong whole, but this strength is lost when the board material comes into contact with water or moisture. Do you use the boards untreated outdoors or in a damp room indoors? Then the fibre boards quickly lose their quality.

What is board used for?

Board can be used for a wide variety of applications. For example, hardboard is often used for wall seals and covers. It is therefore obvious that hardboard is harder and stronger than softboard. This makes hardboard an excellent choice if you want to work with a harder board material of good quality. You can also use it, for example, for a back wall in a cupboard. In other cases it is wise to choose softboard, for example for making a good underlay. More and more people are opting for softboard boards to create a subfloor, certainly in flats. This has everything to do with the excellent insulating effect of softwood boards.

Board is a 100 per cent natural product

Sustainability plays an increasingly important role. We pay more attention to working sustainably and to making earth- and environment-conscious choices. If you are looking for a board material that fits in well with this idea, board is a good choice. After all, board is a 100 per cent natural product. During the production process, no harmful substances are added to the material. The wood fibres used for the production of board are also responsible. This means that board is provided with the well-known FSC quality mark. It is a sustainable and natural material to work with responsibly and consciously.
