We are a major Importer, Exporter, and Supplier of Plain Softboard. It is soft, resilient, light coloured sheet material which is 10 to 25 mm thick. It is manufactured by our reliable vendors from bagasse (sugarcane) fibres. Jolly Softboards are grooved or drilled to improve their sound absorbing capabilities and then used as acoustic boards. They are used for ceilings and wall linings particularly where reflected sound is to be reduced. Jollyboard is a premier manufacturer of different types of Insulation Boards including soft board. The soft boards of our company are in great demand and suitable for every requirement of a soft board as well as various types of insulation boards. Our soft boards are highly suitable for ceiling, partitions, panels and floorings. Insulation Board and soft boards of Jollyboard are comparable with the best in the world.

Sizes generally available are:
Climatic Effect :
Jolly Softboards are hygroscopic in nature. Their dimensions change in response to changes in humidity. If these dimensional changes take place after the boards have been fixed they may cause bowing or gaps at joints. To avoid this the moisture content of board may first need to be adjusted to that of the surrounding air by conditioning. Conditioning is done by placing the boards in the room where they are to be fitted for 24 to 48 hours to attain the same moisture content.
Behavious In Use : The data presented in the following table gives general round values from laboratory test results.
Gases - Water Vapour :
Water vapour permeability: of 12mm natural insulating board is approximately 1.2 to 3.4g/sMN Board with surfaces of aluminium foil or PVC provide a vapour barrier. Vapour barriers can also be provided by two coats of flat paint to give permeability of 0.067g/ sMN and by a gloss paint system to give a value of 0.027g/sMN. (A material is considered to be a vapour barrier when its water vapour permeability does not exceed 0.067g/sMN.)
Liquids - Water :
Water absorption: The thermal insulation properties of boards are considerably reduced if they become wet and some boards, because of their porous nature, readily absorb water. It is therefore necessary that boards or tiles are kept dry both before and after fixing. IS 3348, specifies a water absorption test for these boards and gives the following maximum mean water absorption values to which Jolly Softboard easily conforms.
Look at what you can do with JOLLY BOARD SOFTBOARD
Jolly Soft Board can be effectively used for wall linings, and ceilings. When used for panelling and partitioning with adequate framework for support, insulation board helps absorb reflected sound.
Jolly Softboard, aesthetically covered with attractive fabrics serves as a practical and unobtrusive display board ideal for window dressing and other displays in all kinds of stores. Another fast growing application is pin board (a smaller size ready to use display or notice boards.)
Use of softboard in recording studios, auditoria and other places that require sound control results in effective reduction of reflected sound.
Soft board is also used for all purposes where good thermal insulation is required, in the form of wall lining, ceilings and roof linings. It is also used as core material for partitions and doors, for partition panels, and as anti-drum lining for metal partitions and machine casings. For purpose requiring a resilient material, such as a floor or carpet underlay, it assists in reducing impact sound transmission.
Due to its resilient nature Jolly Softboard is used as base material for expansion joint fillers.
Predecorated boards are available. In situations where humid conditions may arise bitumen-impregnated soft board should be specified.
Sound absorption co-efficient when determined by the standing wave method shall be as follows as per IS 3348.
Durablity : Jolly Softboard has good durability. It will be damaged if subjected to high impact loads. Thermal insulation value is reduced if the board gets wet.
Working Characterstics : Jolly softboard is a light weight, easily handled material which can be readily cut with a sharp knife or sawn with hand or machine saws. Special cutting tools are available for chamfering. It can be bonded with all wood working adhesives and nailed in the manner of other wood based sheet materials. It can be decorated easily with all commercial paints and coatings and can readily be faced with other sheet materials.
