Masonite

Masonite HardBoard
 
Commonly known as Masonite, hardboard is produced from timber which is first reduced to ligno-cellulose fibres. It is then wet-felted and hot pressed to form sheets. No synthetic resins are added, as the process relies on the natural resins present in the timber to bond the panels together.Hardboard is a cost effective product that provides the user with an extraordinary wide range of potential applications, such as cupboard backers, bottoms of drawers and packaging.
 




 
Coated HardBoard
 
A range of coated hardboard products are available from Masonite. From Standard White panels, ideal for the backers of kitchen carcasses, to green Chalkboard to the woodgrain finishes of TimbaMatch, TimbaWall and Trugrain, Masonite provides cost-effective, versatile, easy to use panels.
 




 
SoftBoard (Insulation Board)
 
Softboard, as with hardboard, is made up of wet-felted wood fibres which are pressed into a panel under heat and pressure. The panel is not pressed to the same degree as hardboard, resulting in a relatively soft board, uniform in density and thickness.Flexijoint is softboard with the addition of bitumen to assist in decreasing moisture absorption.The cellular nature of the material combined with its density results in a lightweight panel that has good thermal and sound insulation properties.It is used as ceiling insulation, office and acoustic enhancing screens, protective packaging, display boards, while Flexijoint is used for concrete spacers in general construction.
