Plywood Manufacturing

Plywood Manufacturing

Plywood is made by bonding 3 or more layers of thin sheets of wood veneers of uniform thickness to adjoining laminates at right angles to each other.  This process reduces the shrinkage and improves the strength of the sheet.  This produces a sheet product with the grain running in both of the principal directions in the plane of the sheet. An odd number of lamination is usually used with each veneer laid up at right angles to the previous one. This gives a sheet with just more than 50% of the fibres in the main direction (the face grain direction) and just less than 50% at right angles to the other direction. The top layer of plywood is called the face and the the bottom is the back.  The face is the surface that is seen and the back remains hidden.  The center layer is known as the core.  In plywood with five or more plies, the inter-mediate layers are known as the cross-bands.

BB and CC grades plywood are suitable for paint finishes while also providing structural strength.  Most plywood sheets are used in building construction.  

CD grade plywood is general purpose plywood suitable for hoardings, flooring, handyman jobs where the appearance is not so important.

Exterior Plywood 

Exterior plywood is an Appearance Grade plywood of high quality. When finished appropriately, it can be used for interior-lining usage and semi-exposed outdoor usage.  Exterior plywood is manufactured from hoop pine and offers F14 stress grade. 

Marine Plywood Manufacturing -  How it's Made

Marine plywood is used in the manufacturing of boats and docks.  Standard plywood cannot be used is wet environments. Marine plywood is made from sheets of a tropical hardwood which is naturally water resistant and which is also bonded with water resistant glue.  

Marine Plywood - is used for boats, flooring, bulkheads and furniture.  The core is made of bonded layers of Okoume which is a water resistnant species grown in the hot and humid Equitorial rainforest in Africia.  The surface is made from a decorative wood veneer such as oak maple and teak.

Plywood can be made to be termite resistant by using a preservative treatment to H2 level.

Plywood is available from Water resistant layers of Okeume.
