Abstract:Some factors to consider in evaluating the possibilities of hardboard manufacture for the Rocky Mountain territory are suitability, availability and comparative cost of raw material, and capital investment requirements for hardboard production. While the present status of the domestic industry is shown, future demand for the product cannot be predicted. It is hoped that the market growth of recent years will continue, since hardboard production is a stimulating improvement in wood utilization. It is recommended, however, that anyone interested in hardboard manufacture make a thorough analysis of all factors affecting the success of such a venture.
