Over the years, plywood has become the building material of choice for professional woodworkers, carpenters and amateur DIY-ers alike. From its sustainability to its extreme versatility, plywood is the perfect material for many projects.
Plywood is made from timber cut into sheets and pressed together under pressure using adhesive. Impressively solid and versatile, the cross-lamination of panels in birch plywood allow it distributes the force over a wider surface area, causing it to be highly resistant to impact. Despite its strength, plywood maintains impressive levels of flexibility, making it perfect for use in furniture or anything that uses curved surfaces.
Due to the application of substances to wood veneers during the manufacture of the plies that make up plywood, it is moisture-resistant and chemical-resistant. This resistance makes plywood a better choice than MDF for use in general-purpose home furniture such as tables, chairs, decking and planters, as it is in industries in which exposure to chemicals is commonplace.
As well as being an excellent thermal and noise insulator, plywood carries an aesthetic appeal. The warm and natural aesthetic of birch plywood is both timeless and contemporary, making it easy on the eye in most uses.
Boasting all of these benefits and their affordability, it is hardly surprising that individuals and businesses of all sizes reap the benefits of birch plywood as a material.
