How to Choose Plywood?

Dec. 07, 2020

Plywood is one of the most commonly used materials for furniture and is a type of wood-based panel. It is a thin sheet of wood made from logs spun into veneer or planed into thin wood and then glued together with adhesives to form three or more layers. Plywood improves the utilization of wood and is a major way to save wood. It can also be used as lumber for aircraft, ships, trains, automobiles, construction, and packing boxes.

Plywood Density

The denser the plywood, the better the quality. It is generally larger than decorative lumber of the same species. The greater the unit pressure during gluing, the greater the density of the plywood. Since wood is prone to plastic deformation at high temperatures, the compression ratio of hot-press gluing is greater than that of cold-press gluing. Since plywood is made of staggered veneers, its thermal conductivity is lower than that of wood of the same species.

The outermost veneer of the plywood is called the surface plate, the front surface plate is called the panel, the reverse surface plate is called the backplate, and the inner veneer is called the core plate or center plate.

Plywood Thickness

Plywood is made up of thin pieces of wood, such as 3-ply, 5-ply, 9-ply, 12-ply, 15-ply, 18-ply, etc. Depending on the combination of plies, the thickness of the plywood varies. Depending on the combination of different laminates, the thickness of plywood varies, generally with several specifications such as 3%, 5%, 9%, 12%, 15%, 18% and so on, although there are other thicknesses according to special circumstances.

How to choose plywood?

1. There is a difference between the front and back, the front side is smooth and smooth, the surface wood grain is clear, not rough, flat without lagging feel is a good product.

2. There should be no damage, bruises, hard wounds, scars, and other blemishes.

3. No delaminating phenomenon.

4.Some plywood is made by pasting two veneers with different patterns together, so it is important to pay attention to the selection of the plywood joints should be tight, no unevenness phenomenon.

5.Plywood should be selected without loose glue. If the hand knocking plywood parts, the sound is brittle, then prove the quality is good, if the sound is boring, then the plywood has appeared loose plastic phenomenon.

6. The choice of plywood mainly depends on its formaldehyde emission and bonding strength. If the gluing strength of the plywood is not good, it will easily fall apart. When choosing plywood, you should also pay attention to whether the nominal thickness of the plywood matches the actual thickness.
