Spanish term or phrase: chapadur entelado
About a contemporary Argentine painter:

Transcurrían los primeros años del dos mil, Leticia trabajaba sobre telas pequeñas. Más específicamente, su soporte era chapadur entelado, ese típico material que abunda en los talleres de estudiantes de pintura.

I was translating it as "canvas-covered hardboard" and, while there are some hits for it, it doesn't seem to be as common as the material referred to in the text. Is there a better translation?
Thanks!

agree  Charles Davis: The "functional" equivalent is probably canvas board/canvas panel, which are very common standard terms, but the board/panel is not always hardboard: there are cheap versions with canvas on cardboard. So your suggestion is probably safer.

  -> Thanks, Charles! In fact some of the sites advertising this also had "cartón entelado".
