Default Warped 'fibreboard' (?) on Avominor

Question: Can this be straightened out?

The rear covers on universal avominors are made out of this very tough pressed sort of fibreboard, it's either black, dark red or grey. I am at a loss to know how to straighten it without damage, although i do have a broken one which i could experiment on if anyone has ideas. I doubt very much that the material is significantly porous. I would like to be able to use it as the (riveted on) bakelite battery holder and terminals are very good. De-riveting these items from the board is not viable- they don't take well to being separated.
