Plywood and Veneers

LiteCore A/S 2010 offers many types of different plywoods and veneers. Please contact us for further details.

Plywood is a type of manufactured wood made from thin sheets of wood (wood veneer). It is one of the most widely used wood products. It is flexible, cheap, workable, and recyclable. Plywood is used instead of plain wood because of its resistance to cracking, shrinkage, and twisting/warping, and its general high degree of strength.

Veneers are obtained either by “peeling” the trunk of a tree or by slicing large rectangular blocks of wood known as flitches. The appearance of the grain and figure in wood comes from slicing through the growth rings of a tree and depends upon the angle at which the wood is sliced.
