Birch plywood is one of the materials used for the production of parquet and engineering boards. It is one of the most demanding areas of plywood application. Although all the companies have their individual requirements, there are some issues that are equally considered to be very important by all of them. Birch plywood for parquet shall have optimal moisture content and high load bearing capacity.
At the same time, there are different requirements to adhesives. Some parquet manufacturers prefer WBP or Exterior birch plywood because of its high water resistance while the others use more cost-effective MR in Interior birch plywood as anyway the product shall be kept away from moisture. To preserve the optimal moisture content, parquet manufacturers also require that plywood shall be thoroughly wrapped in polyethelene or other materials preserving plywood from moisture uptake. There are also strict requirements to thicknesses and thickness tolerances of plywood boards.
Birch plywood for production of parquet is safe for people’s health. Cut-to-size plywood is also popular among parquet manufacturers. To increase the strength properties of birch plywood, some manufacturers also have special requirements to inner layers of birch plywood.
Plyterra Parquet is 100% birch plywood for parquet production from Russian plywood manufacturer Plyterra Group. It is a product of high quality. It has such advantages as durability, low weight and dimensional stability. Plyterra Parquet is used by parquet manufacturers around the world. It is a product of heightened water resistance due to being glued with adhesive based on phenol-formaldehyde resin. Formaldehyde emission level of the birch plywood for parquet complies with the requirements of E1, CARB, ULEF. The use of birch veneer of special thickness makes it possible to produce parquet plywood of standard and not-standard thicknesses with strict thickness tolerances. It is possible to use solid veneer in the inner layers.
