H1 Hydro Tempered, high humidity-resistant hardboard

In Betanzos HB we are looking always to improve and innovate our products. By doing this, we are expanding the ways how it can be used and we are also offering a a higher number of applications that, also, answers to the demands of the most sustainable products. Thanks to this innovation, we have surpassed the Tablex and we are announcing the launch of the H1 Hydro Tempered, a high-density waterproof wooden fiberboard.

Tablex. H1 Hydro tempered

This worksheet has more information about the technical features of the H1 Hydro Tempered: Download file

We just created a high-density, resistant and flexible waterproof hardboard, that is natural and friendly to the environment during its fabrication. Tablex waterproof is made with natural wood fibers coming from certified plantations (FSC and/or PEFC).

Tablex already comes with excellent qualities in its behavior againts humidity, and now, we are taking it even further, we just added a special tratment that provides an even better resistance against humidity. Thanks to this, we just improved our product’s resistance in humid conditions, prolonging the life cycle of the hardboard.

These new priorities make the H1 Hydro Tempered, way more appropiate for special applications, such as foundations for roofs, interior coating for walls, floors and ceilings, protective structures, doors, signboards and special crates, where the humidity factor is a decisive factor for its durability.
