Red Core Essentially hard-wood and has a natural reddish tone. Within Plywood industry, very popular and commonly perceived for being best in quality and termed as “Red Core“.
Plywood is a material manufactured from thin layers or “plies” of wood veneer that are glued together with adjacent layers having their wood grain rotated up to 90 degrees to one another. It is an engineered wood from the family of manufactured boards which includes medium-density fibreboard (MDF) and particle board (chipboard).
All gurjan plywood s bind resin and wood fibre sheets (cellulose cells are long, strong and thin) to form a composite material. This alternation of the grain is called cross-graining and has several important benefits: it reduces the tendency of wood to split when nailed in at the edges; it reduces expansion and shrinkage, providing improved dimensional stability; and it makes the strength of the panel consistent across all directions. There is usually an odd number of plies, so that the sheet is balanced—this reduces warping. Because plywood is bonded with grains running against one another and with an odd number of composite parts, it has high stiffness perpendicular to the grain direction of the surface ply.
Smaller, thinner, and lower-quality plywoods may only have their plies (layers) arranged at right angles to each other. Some better-quality plywood products will by design have five plies in steps of 45 degrees (0, 45, 90, 135, and 180 degrees), giving strength in multiple axes.
Wood is the most ancient and commonly used building material, especially when it comes to making furniture. However, with the advancement in technology and due to its the dearth, wood was replaced by the products that functioned like wood, had almost a wood-like look and solved major purposes that a wood would. Well, with the passage of time, these products too went through a lot of transformation. The resultant is, today we get to see various artificial wooden products available in the market such as block board, plywood, MDF, particle board, etc. All these artificial wooden products are extremely popular in the market. The best part of these products is, they can be used with a fewer number of joints. Hence, majority of them are used in the form of furniture. Among these, plywood has undoubtedly remained on the top.
Plywood is an engineered wood that is made up of thin sheets of veneers (thin slice of natural wood) glued together. There are several uses of plywood. If you just take a look around in your house, you will notice that from flooring to doors, partition wall to kitchen cabinets, and other furniture; your house is dominated by this versatile building material. Plywood is durable and cost-effective as compared to solid wood.
