Today Finnish processed birch plywood is one of the most advanced wood based panel products for a wide variety of demanding end uses in the construction, vehicle and other specialist industries. The other main plywood product range is based on spruce as its raw material. The Finnish industry has introduced during recent decades new more efficient and environmentally friendly technology to produce excellent spruce plywood mainly to meet the needs of the construction industry.
Metsä Wood Birch plywood is made of cross-bonded 1.4 mm thick birch veneers. The panels are sanded on both sides and their surface is smooth, hard and durable. Birch plywood is characterised by excellent strength and stiffness properties, and therefore it performs very well in applications demanding high strength and rigidity.
Metsä Wood spruce plywood is an excellent general-purpose construction panel, ideal for both interior and exterior construction work, and any other uses which value strength, stability and lightweight versatility. Metsä Wood spruce plywood is manufactured from a long-grained, homogenous Nordic conifer with straight grains. Its veneer structure gives this versatile plywood panel considerable strength and rigidity. Spruce plywood panels are light, easy to work with and easy to install using conventional wood-working tools and fasteners.
