Panel consisting of an odd number of perpendicularly overlapping wood veneers and bonded together by synthetic resins, under the action of pressure at high temperature, which make a product having high stability, mechanical strength, tensile strength and a low level of cracking and warping.
It is subject to various kinds of coatings such as wood veneers or thin (hpl) laminates.
Depending on how the veneer is removed from the trunk, the plywood can have two configurations: peeled plywood and quarter cut plywood (commercially designated as decorative plywood).
Within these settings are divided in different classes of bonding (C1 and C2), depending on their intended use:
Decorative Plywood C1 - made with core in peeled veneer and faces with sliced veneer, for use in dry conditions (interior applications with no risk of wetting);
Decorative Plywood C2 - made with phenolic adhesives with core in peeled veneer and faces with sliced veneer, for use in humid conditions.
