Plywood

THE ORIGINAL ENGINEERED WOOD PRODUCT

Plywood Basics

Plywood has been one of the most recognized and trusted wood building products for decades. Manufactured from thin sheets of cross-laminated veneer and bonded under heat and pressure with strong adhesives, plywood panels have superior dimensional stability and an excellent strength-to-weight ratio and are highly resistant to impacts, chemicals, and changes in environmental temperature and humidity. Plywood manufactured by Kunzwood member mills is available in a wide variety of appearance grades, ranging from smooth, natural surfaces suitable for finish work to more economical grades used for sheathing. With more than a dozen common thicknesses and over twenty different grades, plywood is well-suited to a multitude of demanding applications.
