Birch plywood material and Birch plywood use characteristics

In the process of home decoration, plywood is also often used in the construction and decoration industry. It is a new type of wood-based panel, which is made of veneers with different grain directions. Next, I will introduce the use characteristics of birch plywood and understand what material birch plywood is.


Birch plywood is a wood-based panel made of veneers of different grain directions.

The veneer textures of its adjacent layers usually form a 90° angle with each other. The structure is mostly odd-numbered layers, and in special cases, it is also made into even-numbered layers such as 4 layers and 6 layers. Because plywood has the characteristics of small deformation, large format, convenient construction, not easy to warp, and high tensile strength of transverse grains, it is widely used in furniture, carriages, shipbuilding, military industry, packaging and other industrial sectors.

Birch plywood material:

It is a three-layer or multi-layer board-like material that is made of wood sections that are peeled into veneers or sliced into thin wood, and then glued with adhesives. Usually, odd-numbered veneers are used, and adjacent layers of veneers are used. The fiber directions are glued perpendicular to each other. Birch plywood is one of the commonly used materials for furniture and is a kind of wood-based panel. A group of veneers are usually glued together according to the direction of the wood grain of adjacent layers perpendicular to each other. Usually, the surface board and the inner layer board are symmetrically arranged on both sides of the center layer or the board core. It is formed by pressing the veneer after gluing according to the criss-cross direction of the wood grain and pressing it under heating or non-heating conditions.

Birch plywood specifications:

The length and width of birch plywood specifications vary slightly due to different manufacturers, but generally speaking, there are 1220×2440mm, 1220×1830mm, 915×1830mm, 915×2135mm, which can be selected according to the needs of use. Different length and width plywood. The thickness is determined by the number of layers of the plywood. Except for the surface board, the more layers of the inner board, the thicker the thickness. If the plywood is classified by thickness, it can be roughly divided into several categories such as 3, 5, 9, 12, 15, and 18 mm. When processing different furniture, boards of different thicknesses are used, and of course their market prices are also different.

How about birch plywood:

Advantages of Birch Plywood: Plywood is constructed of layers of wood bonded together at right angles, which is its strength. This layered plant resists warping, cracking, and twisting, making it ideal for construction. In addition to its strength, plywood is similar to the whole wood species, which makes it ideal as a finishing lumber material where the boards are made much less expensive.

Cons of Birch Plywood: The delamination effect of plywood makes it porous and susceptible to water damage over time if exposed. Plywood should be wrapped to reduce the risk of water damage when it becomes heavy and wet.


Regarding the material of birch plywood, I believe everyone has already understood the use of birch plywood. Among home decoration materials, birch plywood is also a very suitable board for decoration. The overall cost performance is very high, and it is the first choice for home decoration design.
