Description: Birch plywood is harvested in the northern regions of Europe. Due to frosts this plywood has very light natural colour. It composes of 1.4 mm thick birch plies by cross bonding with either melamine urea glue (interior glue, no visible glue line), or phenol-formaldehyde glue (exterior glue (WBP), brown glue line). This is a high-quality structural and decorative material. The surface is sanded on both faces.
Appearance grades of the Birch Plywood:
B (Premium Grade) Practically without defects. Discoloration is allowed up to 15% of the sheet surface, loose knots and knotholes sized up to 5 mm are allowed up to 3 per m2
BB – Discoloration is allowed up to 70% of a sheet surface. Loose knots and open defects are patched, patches (plugs) should match surrounding grain direction and colour. CP - discoloration and patches are allowed without limits, putty repair is allowed. C – Not sanded. Open defects of wood structure and processing defects are allowed
