Why Plywood? Simply because it outperforms all substitute wood-based panels on the market today. Plywood is a highly stable panel. When exposed to moisture or high humidity, plywood is up to seven times more resistant to thickness swell than substitute wood-based panels. Plywood also returns to its original dimensions when it dries. Plywood is stronger than substitute wood-based panels in the four important engineering strength properties of bending, tension, compression and planar shear and plywood weighs up to 40% less than substitute wood-based panels of equivalent thickness. Plywood is a highly impact-resistant panel and continues to perform even when wet. Plywood has over 50 years of proven service as a structural panel for homes and construction and remains, according to surveys, the panel of choice by home buyers, contractors, architects and engineers.
- Plywood is manufactured from logs averaging 10 inches in diameter from managed sustainable forests. 100% of the log is utilized for either veneer, or by-products, such as 2x4 lumber, landscaping ties or chips for pulp and paper. Nothing is wasted.
- Plywood manufacturing, because it is a value added process, employs four times as many people compared to the manufacture of substitute wood-based panels - using the same volume of logs.
