Questions & Answers

Would this work well as backing for a desk?

Asked by Tanisha April 12, 2021
1
Answer

Hi Tanisha, The hardboard should work. Note that hardboard can be hard to penetrate with normal nails or screws. We suggest that you mark off the place where you would like to put in a nail or screw, then use a power drill with a sharp drill head to puncture a hole in the wood.

Would this work for bottom of drawer

Asked by Kingfam05 April 2, 2021
1
Answer

Hello Kingfam05, We suggest 1/2 in. plywood - not OSB or tempered hardboard, for the bottom of a drawer.

Hi, what's the best material and thickness for the cabinet back panel under a kitchen sink?

Asked by Somedude February 26, 2021
1
Answer

Hello Somedude, We do not recommend tempered hardboard for your particular project as it is susceptible to water which can cause expansion and damage. We like 3/4 in. plywood for our cabinets, but if you are looking for more cost-effective materials, there is also MDF and PVC.

Can I purchase this in size 4ft. X 5ft.?

Asked by Connie February 24, 2021
1
Answer

Well, it looks, Connie, that what you requested is not a stocked option, so our advice is to have you contact your Home Depot location to get availability and pricing on a special order of this product from the manufacturer. The closest that we could come to the 4 ft. x 5 ft. dimensions is in a darker color, but what you could do is have it cut down at the store. It's Hardboard Tempered Panel (Common: 1/8 in. 4 ft. x 8 ft.; Actual: 0.115 in. x 47.7 in. x 95.7 in.), Model# 832777. Hoping this works for you.

Does it contain Formaldehyde or any other voc?

Asked by Gabriel February 21, 2021
1
Answer

Hi Gabriel, According to our product specialist, this hardboard contains a small amount of low-formaldehyde-emitting glue that is considered safe. There are no other VOCs.

Can I staple fabric to the underside of this then screw it to the top of a small chest

Asked by Barb February 12, 2021
1
Answer

Barb, After talking with our product expect, this is what was determined: an electric staple gun or a pneumatic stapler will work. A less powerful, manual, spring-loaded kind won't work as well and has the potential to crack the hardboard.

Are these boards suitable for decoupage?

Asked by Fran January 16, 2021
1
Answer

Fran, It seems that almost any surface - including glass, can be used for decoupage, but the product page for this product states that "this product is not waterproof; for long-life, avoid getting panels wet." As this product is suitable for painting, though, it would make sense that decoupaging would not hurt the board as you are applying the adhesive then allowing it to dry - not submerging it. We would suggest that you do a test on the board before you purchase too many.

How much weight can the Tempered Hardboard support? Can it be used for a ramp for guinea pigs?

Asked by Ace October 16, 2020
1
Answer

Ace, While you should find that your standard, pet-sized guinea pig can be supported by the product, the Home Depot site notes that product is not waterproof; thus, for long product life, avoid getting panels wet. How much weight a product can support varies by the length, width and thickness of the product, along with the ways in which it is being supported itself. So while it seems more than reasonable that a sheet of tempered hardboard should be able to support an average-size guinea pig, both variables must be taken into account. Hoping your pigs love their new ramp.

What is the weight of this board

Asked by Laurie August 25, 2020

Answer

Laurie, The 1/8” thick x 2 foot wide by 4 foot long is about 21 lbs.

What is the easiest way to cut these?

Asked by twistedclover May 28, 2020

Answers

We've used this board for a wide variety of crafts for several years now. Without a doubt, the best tool for cutting curves and odd shapes of tempered hardboard is a jigsaw equipped with a "Wood-Scroll" jigsaw blade which allows for cutting with much tighter turns and angles than you could with a standard wood blade. The little 4" tall ornament in the photo is this hardboard that's been decoupaged and cut out with a jigsaw.

Used as underlayment
I’m using it as underpayment for self stick vinyl plank flooring with the shiny side down. Needed something that was 1/8” thick and this was all I could find but I think it’s gonna work out perfectly (See pic—so far so good). Yes you can cut it with a utility knife but you’ll hate yourself in the morning so use a saw. I glued it down with construction adhesive (Liquid Nails) and nailed it down with 1 1/4” brads cause that’s the best I had handy. Note this stuff is harder than you think—I wanted to screw it down but the screws just wouldn’t dimple. Even the brads were a challenge but they’re your best bet short of drilling a zillion pilot holes and did the job.

For the most part, these hardboard sheets are dimensionally accurate, but are not cut squarely. You will want to check with a framing square before cutting to size for your project. I used two of these panels to form the back of my DIY reptile habitat.

The tempered hardboard is very good. The only bad thing is that some of the stickers you attach to the board will remove a layer of the board when you remove the stickers! I suppose if I were to paint the board it would be OK but I don't plan on painting it!
