Customer Questions & Answers

Is this smooth on both sides?

Asked by: Jchristy
No, it comes lightly sanded from the mill, but if you want it sanded all the way, I would go with the project board that says sanded. Or break out the orbital sander and go with some 150 grit, then some 220 grit and call it a day. Really depends on how smooth you want it.

Is this the same as masonite and does anyone know for sure if it's smooth on both sides?

There seems to be disagreement on this site, as to whether this is smooth on both sides or not.
Asked by: redosue
I do believe so.It is sanded on 1 side the other may be smooth or rough depending on who the manufacturer is.

We are looking for gym floor covering. We have used masonite in the past. Can you give us some advice on what time of material to use?

Whether or not this material is sufficient enough.

1/4 in. x 2 ft. x 4 ft. Tempered Hardboard is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is not 1/4 inch thick hardboard. this is not 1/4 inch hardboard. It is 3/16 hardboard being passed off as 1/4. The ANSI/AHA A135.4-1995 specification for hardboard requires a thickness range of .210-.265 for 1/4 inch hardboard.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from thickness size question Statements that the advertised thickness is not correct are accurate. This is not plywood which allows variations in the actual thickness - this is hardboard which has stricter thickness standards. If it is stated as 1/4 inch it is supposed to be 1/4 inch. The wood standard which allows for a 1 x to be 3/4 instead of 1 inch and a 2x4 to actually be 1 1/2 x 3 1/2 are different than the hardboard standards. The American Hardboard Association states hardboard is to be sold and labeled by its manufactured thickness. Just be aware it is not as advertised and account for it in your design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plywood sizing Everyone above is stating that the thickness sizing on this plywood is incorrect. They are wrong. The sizing shown here is correct. Check the specifications for 1/4" plywood and you will find out that the correct thickness is 3/16" to 7/32". You will hardly ever find 1/4" plywood that is 1/4" thick. The description for this product is correct and within the guidelines for plywood thickness. If you are working on a project where you need an exact thickness, then you should ALWAYS measure before you purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not 1/4 inch This product is not 1/4 inch. It is only 3/16 inch
Date published: 2012-03-24
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is HARDBOARD NOT PLYWOOD Hardboard and Plywood Thicknesses are 2 entirely different measurements. I use the 1/4" hardboard for drawer bottoms only because the 1/4" plywood thickness is too thin be it luan OR spuce The bottom line is you will never be able to buy a TRUE 1/4" thick piece of plywood OR hardboard for that matter. They just don't make it anymore. Just like you will never be able to buy a TRUE 2 X 4

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Plywood Sizing NOT! The specifications clearly state that this is 1/4", which it is NOT. Just look at the plywood specifications - it will tell you that the plywood is for example, 23/32". What's next - a 4x8 sheet is only 90x40?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hardboard the product they sell is 3/16 inch hardboard. this is not compatible with the advertising and the product that you will find in the store.
Date published: 2012-10-02
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as advertised As a previous rating indicated, this product is 3/16", not 1/4" as labeled and advertised. If you have a particular project in mind that calls for 1/4", be aware that is not what you are buying!
