Hello All,
I'm looking to buy some sheets of oil tempered hardboard.
Does anyone know of a stockist in Scotland cos I can't find one anywhere.
Thanks
Ian

If it ain't broke, fix it till it is. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem. Lack of funds is the mother of ingenuity

Does it come in colours or different finishes or is it like hardboard and then needs a covering of some sort? Sorry to be so vague but I didn't know I could maybe get my interior panels by going to a Builders Merchant. Let's hope it is that easy!

What's the difference between oil tempered and normal hardboard?

Oil tempered is more bendy and moisture resistant.Wink

Or you can go all Aston Martin and use MDF as that's what they use with a wood veneer for all the posh wood trim.

H Frank,

One branch had never heard of oil tempered and the other just said no we dont stock it.

When I mentioned that it was on there web site I was told that because a product was listed did not mean they carried it.
Work that one out.

Anyway it seems that this type of board has fallen out of favour these days as I can only find it in one place down south
with an £80 delivery cost which is 10 times the cost of a sheet.

I have though found this stuff on line and may give it a go.

Any thoughts.

Ian

Hi Ian, I will go over to my local TP during the week to see if they are more receptive in person. Ive seen that stuff I the link and its not really that smooth, full of ridges plus crumples badly when bent/manipulated.

I had some foam backed plastic about 3mm thick in my old early bay, the previous owner got it from a company down his way in England called century plastics. From what I can see, it might be called palfoam used mainly in sign displays. A quick squint on the tinterweb throws up this local company selling the same thing. I would need a butchers at it up close to see its suitability but comes in big sheets and differing thicknesses, not sure of cost though?

No joy at TP im afraid, dont stock it so back to drawing board. Unless get few folk needing it could possibly cut down on shipping costs? Im still unsure if going with this option as ive only just started cutting out the rot, something to bear in mind though

Thanks for looking Frank.
I was out and about in Glasgow at the weekend and had a look at 3mm foamboard.
8x4 £12. 10x5 £20 + the dreaded VAT
Looks like a very good alternative, I'll let you know how I get on.

Hi Ian have you seen this stuff? Not cheap but pre-cut and great if you are looking for grey

Hi Frank,
They look pretty good.
I have though gone down your suggested route and have bought some 3mm foamboard.
It's very easy to work with and should be rot proof and maybe add a bit of insulation.
The sheets I have are 10x5 so I have been able to make the long panel opposite the door in one piece.
I got enough to do the whole van including the roof for £100 with plenty left over for mistakes.
Wil post some picks when I have it all cut.
Ian
