Product Details
Plywood is a manufactured wood panel made from thin sheets of varying wood veneer. It is one of the most widely used wood products as it is flexible, inexpensive, workable and re-usable. Plywood is widely used due to its resistance to cracking, shrinkage, splitting, and twisting/warping, and because of its generally high strength. Plywood layers (called veneers) are glued together, with adjacent plies having their wood grain at right angles to each other, to form a composite structure. This alternation of the grain is called cross-graining and has several important benefits: it reduces the tendency of wood to split when nailed at the edges; it reduces expansion and shrinkage, providing improved dimensional stability; and it makes the strength of the panel consistent across both directions. There is usually an odd number of plies, so that the sheet is balanced reducing warping. Because plywood is bonded with grains running against one another and with an odd number of composite parts, it is very hard to bend it perpendicular to the grain direction.
