Plywood manufactured by PAGED

We use birch, alder, beech and pine wood to make plywood.

Plywood is a wood derivative produced by bonding together a certain number of thin (e.g. 1.5 mm) sheets of wood (the so-called veneers). Each consecutive ply is laid while "rotating" the thin veneer sheets by 90° in relation to the previous ply. Such a set is pressed in a press at a high temperature and this is when plywood acquires its cross-grained structure which provides its essential and excellent performance properties. Plywood made for special purposes may be designed parallel-grained or parallel-grained with a few transverse plies.

A plywood sheet is usually composed of several kinds of wood, e.g. pine/alder, birch/pine, birch/alder or birch/pine. The "homogeneous" plywood products contain 100% birch, alder or pine. The kind of wood used for the external plies of which a specific board is composed determines whether it is a softwood or hardwood plywood product. The internal plies can be made of wood of the same type or other types than the external plies.
