Besides that, plywood also helps the ECO of the natural system to be maintained in another sense, it also helps reduce illegal logging of trees in the forest because we can make plywood using tree trunks from agricultural products such as sengon, rubber and others.

Plywood material is often found as a building material. The price is relatively cheap making it still popular among the public. For those who don't know what plywood is, plywood is a material made from processed wood in the form of boards. Triplex or multiplex is the most common designation in Indonesia.

Plywood is made of thin sheets of wood. The production process is by arranging thin sheets of wood which are stacked in several layers and glued. So do not be surprised if it is also called plywood. Then go through the process of pressing to glue it. The types of wood used are usually sengon, pine, and sungkai wood. To find out more about plywood, here is a full explanation.

Types of Plywood


There are actually many kinds of plywood, not only the ones we often see in the market, which are as follows:

1. Ordinary Plywood Type


This type of ordinary plywood does not have a special coating on its surface. Plywood is often used as a material for making furniture. There are several types of ordinary plywood on the market. Among them are local grades, UTY grades, UTY grades better, BB or CC, and overlay better. In order for ordinary plywood material to be more durable and water resistant, you can also add an HPL coating on the surface.

2. Types of Face Plywood Film


Film face plywood is a type of plywood or plywood that uses phenolic materials and is then pressed using a certain pressure and temperature. On the surface of this type of triples there is a layer that is resistant to water. The number of layers of face plywood film can reach 10 layers. Its waterproof nature makes this type of plywood used as formwork, house walls, and floors.

3. Types of Face Plywood Film


Film face plywood is a type of plywood or plywood that uses phenolic materials and is then pressed using a certain pressure and temperature. On the surface of this type of triples there is a layer that is resistant to water. The number of layers of face plywood film can reach 10 layers. Its waterproof nature makes this type of plywood used as formwork, house walls, and floors.

4. Polyresin Plywood


Polyresin plywood is a type of multiplex made by applying clear plywood and coating with resin on top. After hardening a layer will appear on the surface of the plywood. Unlike the film face plywood which has 10 layers. Polyresin plywood consists of 6 layers.

Uses of Plywood


Basically, the use of plywood is for the use of building materials, this use depends on the type. Structural plywood is commonly used for floors, beams, formwork, and panels. For external plywood is usually used for the exterior of the house.

Such as to coat the surface of the door or wall cladding. Internal plywood is used for furniture, roof ceilings, and wall panels. Basically, this plywood or multiplex has various functions. So it is very flexible in use.

That's a complete discussion about plywood that you have seen. For outdoor needs, film face plywood is the most recommended type because it has water resistance properties. So it will be more durable even when exposed to water or humid air.

Plywood itself has a stronger front surface than the middle although basically to make plywood it is composed of layers of wood fibers that cross each other so that the strength of the wood is very hard and difficult to nail.

Utilization of plywood


For the use of plywood itself, including very much for building walls, household furniture, cabinets, chairs, tables and various furniture.

This is because the size of plywood or plywood is very varied and easy to use, it is not difficult to find the size we want.

Plywood advantages and disadvantages


Plywood (plywood) also has advantages over other types of wood, such as solid wood and others. We have summarized its advantages and disadvantages as follows:

Advantages of plywood (plywood)


The advantages of plywood itself are many, including the following:

Easy to get the size we want


As we mentioned above that Sanya plywood itself is made from an arrangement of layers of wood so that the thickness and width can be determined by ourselves or we order directly from the plywood company.

Therefore, to find plywood with the thickness and width of the wood, we can easily find it not as difficult as looking for solid wood in general.

Not shrinking


For plywood itself, it is far from shrinking because plywood has undergone a press process or is pressed with high pressure so that it is rare for us to get it to shrink.

Resistant to termites


Plywood is very resistant to termites because in the process of formation or manufacture it uses a chemical process which is very disliked by termites.

Plus the resin or glue to glue between the layers of wood is not liked by insects.

Weather resistant


Plywood or plywood is very resistant to various weathers because the manufacturing process uses a wood processing system with the latest advanced technology so that it can make the plywood resistant to fungus and wood weathering.

In addition, this process makes it difficult for plywood to bend or bend which makes the appearance of the wood not good.

Smooth surface


The surface of the plywood is very smooth because it has undergone a finishing process so that the color and smoothness of the wood surface is guaranteed.

Waterproof


Plywood is very resistant to water, this is because the surface of the plywood is covered by a layer of hard wood on each surface.

Hard or sturdy


Plywood is made from layers of fibrous wood sheets that cross each other so as to make the structure of plywood (plywood) very sturdy or hard so that sometimes we can't assemble it using nails, we have to drill it and connect it with nuts and bolts.

Disadvantages of plywood


Plywood also has various drawbacks that are sometimes quite inconvenient for us to make household furniture that uses wood as its basic material:

Not good to be placed in outdoor


Even though plywood is resistant to water and weather, plywood is also not good to be placed in outdoor or outdoors because if your area often experiences extreme weather, it makes the durability of plywood reduce the durability of plywood, it is different if you use solid wood which without using glue or resin which is not strong against water.

Complicated manufacturing process


To make plywood, including quite complicated, especially when doing the finishing in accordance with the wishes that we need.

And also in the process of making it need special costs and stages in making it.
