WHY ZERO THICKNESS TOLERANCE IS IMPOSSIBLE IN PLYWOOD BUSINESS?
WHY ZERO THICKNESS TOLERANCE IS IMPOSSIBLE IN PLYWOOD BUSINESS?

  Sometimes, customers may require “zero thickness tolerance” for plywood. Unfortunately, no suppliers can provide plywood of “0mm thickness tolerance”. The reasons are as the following: 1. Thickness tolerance of core veneers is unavoidable. Core veneers for plywood were rotary-cut from logs. While there is thickness tolerance both on each piece of veneers and between different pieces. So plywood is made of core veneers with thickness tolerance. 2. The compression ratio and the pressure for all the sheets of plywood can not be absolutely the same. Tiny differences should exist. 3. During sanding, even if the best Sanding machine can […]

WHY PHENOLIC PLYWOOD IS MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE THAN MR AND MELAMINE PLYWOOD OF SAME THICKNESS?
WHY PHENOLIC PLYWOOD IS MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE THAN MR AND MELAMINE PLYWOOD OF SAME THICKNESS?

  Phenolic plywood is about 10 -18% more expensive than MR and melamine plywood of the same thickness. Customers usually ask why phenolic plywood is so expensive. The reasons are as the following: 1. Phenolic glue is 50-80% more expensive than MR and melamine glue. 2. In order to guarantee a better glue bonding strength, the compression time for phenolic plywood has to be longer than that for MR/melamine plywood. This means we have to spend more producing time for phenolic plywood than MR/melamine plywood. Spending more time means costs increase. 3. Because the compression time for phenolic plywood is […]

THE 10 BIGGEST BENEFITS OF PLYWOOD
THE 10 BIGGEST BENEFITS OF PLYWOOD

    Plywood has come a long way since its introduction in the early 20th century. For decades, plywood was often seen as just a substitute to solid wood. Today, however, plywood has become the primary choice for many builders and homeowners. Here are 10 of the biggest benefits of plywood, including one that is absolutely critical considering the state of the world today.   1. Plywood looks great Let’s start with what can be seen from the outside. Few people will argue against the fact that plywood looks really great. With plywood panel typically covered with solid wood, plywood […]

OKOUME PLYWOOD
OKOUME PLYWOOD

  Made with the wood of the Okoume tree and sometimes referred to as Okoume Mahogany, Okoume plywood normally has a very attractive, somewhat lustrous look that makes it suitable for some fine woodworking applications. Its color is typically pinkish-brown to pale red, and its texture is finely uniform. With a straight to barely wavy grain that sometimes has a slightly interlocked appearance, it offers high strength to weight ratio. Although not known for its water resistance, Okoume plywood is an exceptional choice for building racing boats as well as for other applications in which strength and light weight are […]

PLYWOOD AND PARTICLE BOARD: WHICH IS BETTER ?
PLYWOOD AND PARTICLE BOARD: WHICH IS BETTER ?

  Generally, most people would probably conclude that if you pit plywood vs particleboard, the former would win. Particleboard, however, is not without its own advantages over plywood. Let’s take a look at the differences between plywood and particleboard, and find out which one would win a plywood vs particleboard match.   Plywood vs Particleboard : What are they composed of? One of the most basic differences between plywood vs particleboard lies in their composition. Plywood is made from thin sheets of cross-laminated veneer and glued together under heat and pressure. A particleboard, on the other hand, is true to […]

BLOCK BOARD AND PLYWOOD
BLOCK BOARD AND PLYWOOD

The choice between block board or plywood depends on the project. If you want a smooth finished surface and the strength of the panel is not a major factor, block board makes a good choice. But if strength is more important, plywood is a better choice. For example, plywood can be used to lay down a subfloor for tile and engineered hardwood, while block board is unsuitable and would crush under foot traffic.   Blockboard Block board is a piece of wood with a plywood core and thin veneer panels on the top and bottom sides. The plywood core is […]

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT PLYWOOD ?
HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT PLYWOOD ?

    Plywood is a versatile product made of resin-coated veneer pieces pressed together. It can be tailored tosuit an extensive range of structural, interior and exterior applications. In order to choose the right plywood for a job, you have to know the features and strengths of the different types of plywood.   Plywood Quality Grading   Plywood panels are given two alphabetical ratings that range from A to D. The first letter rates the quality of the front facing side of the panel. The second letter rates the quality of the back side of the panel. A single panel […]

WHY WE SHOULD USE PLYWOOD INSTEAD OF SOLID TIMBER ?
WHY WE SHOULD USE PLYWOOD INSTEAD OF SOLID TIMBER ?

      Increased stability Plywood offers all the inherent advantages of the parent wood plus enhanced properties in its laminated structure.   High impact resistance Being a wood based material, plywood has the ability to accommodate the occasional short-term overload; up to twice the design load. This is useful where seismic activity or cyclonic winds can occur. This property is also effective when used as construction flooring or as concrete formwork. Plywood’s laminated structure distributes loads from impact over a larger area on the opposite face, which effectively reduces the tensile stress.   Surface dimensional stability The cross laminated […]

WHAT IS PLYWOOD?
WHAT IS PLYWOOD?

        Plywood boards or “sheets” are made up of three or more thin layers of real wood that are glued together. The layers are known as “plies”, hence the name “plywood”. Generally, the thicker the plywood, the more layers it has. It is a versatile material with a huge range of applications, from wall and floor covering to moulds for concrete structures, designer furniture to packaging. Plywood is considerably stronger than some other wood-based sheet products, such as medium density fibreboard (MDF). Plywood’s strength is due to the way the direction of each layer’s grain is alternated […]
