Tempered Hardboard is manufactured from Eucalyptas timber species and water resistant synthetic resins to comply with AS 1859.4, Tempered hardboard is a tough high-density building board with superior strength. The fine, densely bonded, wood fibre structure of Tempered hardboard is resistant to abrasion and sufficiently durable for use in semi-protected exterior applications.
Whilst Tempered retains the smooth face surface and fine wire screen back of other Hardboard products, it is characterised by its distinctive dark hard face surface. The smooth surface quality provides an excellent base for paint finishing with most industrial and domestic coatings.
Tempered has a wide range of applications, especially where there are requirements for superior indent resistance, lasting performance and aesthetic stylishness.
Durability: Caneite Softboard has good durability. It will be damaged if subjected to high impact loads. Thermal insulation value is reduced if the board gets wet.
Fire Resistance: The contribution to the fire resistance of a structure is proportional to the thickness of the board. For example 13mm insulating board will contribute 15 minutes fire resistance when used as lining to wall or partition and 10minutes when used as a ceiling
