What is the difference between plywood and bamboo plywood?

Bamboo plywood

bamboo plywood, high-strength film-coated bridge board, ply formwork, and brick machine pallet etc, bamboo plywood is widely used and favored by users.

Bamboo plywood is a building material that is made of moso bamboo as the main structure and filling material, and is formed into a blank by high pressure. Due to its high hardness, resistance to bending and compression, bamboo plywood has replaced steel formwork in many areas of use. And because bamboo is easy to cultivate and grows quickly, it can be cut in three to five years and can replace wood. Therefore, the Ministry of Forestry policy supports the vigorous development of wood-based panels using bamboo as the main processing material, which has been replaced in many places.

Plywood is a three-layer or multi-layer board-like material made of wood pieces that are peeled into veneer or sliced into veneer from wood, and then glued with adhesive. Usually, odd-numbered veneers are used and adjacent layers of veneers are used. The fiber direction is perpendicular to each other and glued together.

Plywood is one of the commonly used materials for furniture. It is one of the three major panels of wood-based panels. It can also be used as a material for aircraft, ships, trains, automobiles, buildings, and packaging boxes. A group of veneers is usually formed by gluing the adjacent layers of wood grains perpendicularly to each other. The surface board and the inner board are usually symmetrically arranged on both sides of the central layer or the core. A slab made of glued veneer in a crisscross pattern in the direction of the wood grain is pressed under heating or non-heating conditions. The number of layers is generally odd, and a few have even numbers. The physical and mechanical properties of the vertical and horizontal directions are relatively small. Commonly used types of plywood are 3-ply, 5-ply and so on. Plywood can improve the utilization rate of wood and is a main way to save wood.

The difference between bamboo plywood and plywood

The difference between plywood and bamboo plywood is mainly in different materials. Bamboo plywood is the strongest and durable, has many turnovers, and the price is the highest. In fact, it is rarely used. Generally, the construction uses more and the bamboo plywood price is in the middle. Finally, the laminated plywood has low price and low turnover, which is suitable for projects with few layers and low template turnover.
