Product Description

3.2mm Hardboard is a strong engineered panel composed of compressed fine wood fibres. Highly versatile, it can be used in various interior use projects, such as floor lining and furniture backing. 

Hardboard sheets boast a clean smooth surface upon which you can apply various floor coverings although they can also be used decoratively when making furniture such as doors, cabinets and drawer backings; one side features a smooth face while the other sports a textured surface to give an enforced grip on surfaces. Although, when tackling permanent fixtures a ring-shanked nail will be required.

At Materials Market, we pride ourselves on working with trusted suppliers and offering nationwide timber and sheet materials delivery. 

Hardboard Sheet Applications

3mm hardboard, also known as high-density fibreboard (HDF), is a traditional board commonly installed as floor covering and the levelling of old floorboards, although it can be used for several purposes.


HDF is most commonly utilised in laminate flooring products where high-density and tensile strength is required, though other applications include door skins and underlayment.


The boards boast a hard-wearing finish, making it the ideal material for countertops, furniture, flooring substrates and furniture manufacture. 


Hardboard sheets are purposed for interior applications such as: 

  • General decorative projects

  • Bottom of drawers

  • Doors

  • Roof sheathing 

  • Backing for wardrobes

  • Cabinets

  • Subfloors


Before installing, confirm that the application in which you will be applying the HDF is in good condition. At Materials Market, we promise fast delivery lead times on a range of cost-effective building supplies and sheet materials suitable for any project list from chipboard to treated boards such as moisture-resistant MDF board. 

3.2mm Standard Hardboard Specifications & Key Features

When compared to the likes of MDF and particle board, hardboard has a number of benefits on its side, including but not limited to its superior strength, durability, and water resistance. 


Let's get into the details and many benefits below: 

  • Standard hardboard is a lightweight multi-purpose panel for internal non-structural use.
  • High-density strong and durable panel - a quality substitute for wood. 
  • Manufactured from highly-compressed fine wood particles. 
  • One face is smooth while the other is coarse and textured. 
  • The face of the board can be painted.
  • Their thin profile offers flexibility, making them ideal for tasks that require a little bit of adaptability.
  • Easy to work with using conventional wood working tools.
  • Suitable for use in floor covering, furniture construction (furniture linings), packaging, and wall panelling.
  • Dimensions - Standard Hardboard 2440 x 1220 x 3.2mm.
  • Hardboard Thickness - 3.2mm. 


How Do HDF and MDF Differ? 

Whilst they have similarities in the sense that both are man-made composite panels made from compressed wood fibres, HDF is a far tougher and stronger panel than MDF with a general density of up to 900kg/m3. 


HDF is a very thin board, with a general thickness of around 3mm-8mm. You may be able to spot HDF within your home as it is also a commonly used material for backing panels and furniture. 

Please note: treated boards should be neatly stacked wet side to wet side in an unheated building for 48-72 hours.
