Advantages and Disadvantages of Fiberboard

by David Stewart

Fiberboard is a kind of man-made board made with plant fiber as the main raw material. It is widely used in the home improvement design industry. What are the advantages and disadvantages of fiberboard? How many types are there? Let's take a look at it together.

Let's first understand the main advantages of fiberboard. The first is the price aspect that many people pay attention to. The price of fiberboard itself is much more affordable than that of natural wood.

The surface treatment of this type of board is better. It can be directly processed and related treatments. This can greatly reduce construction costs.

The area occupied by the single-web surface of fiberboard is relatively large. This type of board can be processed and utilized well.

The quality of fiberboard is relatively stable. It is not as prone to deformation or corrosion as natural wood.

The fiberboard is tight and tight in the internal structure. The quality in the vertical and horizontal directions can be kept highly consistent. This is relatively easy for the construction in the decoration.

High-density fiberboard has a very good sense of shape. It is often used in the head and foot of the bed in the room. It has a bright color and personality. And it is simple and stylish.

The density of fiberboard is great. The performance of load-bearing capacity is also relatively strong. Many home decorations use this type of board when creating cabinets and other items.

Are there any disadvantages to this type of board? Of course, the answer is yes.

The surface of the fiberboard is very hard. It will be more difficult to drive nails in during construction. Because the fiber is very broken. As a result, the nail-holding force of fiberboard is much worse than that of solid wood and particleboard. The water resistance of fiberboard itself is relatively poor.

There are some net structures on the back of the fiberboard. This will easily cause the two sides of the fiberboard to be different. If you have been in a humid environment, it will be very easy to absorb moisture and swell. This will lead to crimping and deformation of the fiberboard.

Not moisture-proof can be said to be the biggest shortcoming of fiberboard. This kind of board tends to swell when it encounters water. This can easily cause the board to deform. The deformation of fiberboard after long-term use and bearing is larger than that of homogeneous solid wood particle board.

If fiberboard is used as skirting board or door cover board and window sill board, care should be taken to paint all six sides of the board. This is to prevent deformation of the board.
