New England Hardboard's most affordable bats, the StudioProTempered Hardboard Bats are made from the finest quality tempered hardboard available. Unlike it's Masonite predecessor, tempered hardboard has no added formaldehyde.
They are slightly absorbent for good clay adhesion and bottom drying. They have a smooth surface on both sides, are durable and easy to use. Hardboard bats are easy to clean and store and are very cost effective. Great for studio potters and teachers! They are compact and easy to store and will last many years if cared for properly. Hardboard bats are a great choice for the professional or hobbyist potter who uses many bats and has a controlled studio setting.
We recommend storing New England Hardboard bats vertically in a slotted rack to prevent warping. Be sure to clean bats thoroughly before storing. Do not stack unless bats are completely dry.
