Engineered Wood

Engineered wood is also called as composite wood, manmade wood or manufactured wood. These products are manufactured by binding strands, particles, fibre’s or veneers of wood together with a strong adhesive. These include plywood, hardboard, particle board, veneer sheet, oriented strand boards, Glulam, etc. These products are manufactured to make wood more easily to use for commercial purposes; be it construction, home appliances or even industrial purposes.

ADHESIVES USED FOR MAKING ENGINEERED WOOD

  • Urea-formaldehyde resins (UF): most common, cheapest, and not waterproof.
  • Phenol-formaldehyde resins (PF): yellow/brown, and commonly used for exterior exposure products.
  • Melamine-formaldehyde resin (MF): white, heat and water resistant, and often used in exposed surfaces in more costly designs.
  • Methylene diphenyldiisocyanate (MDI) or polyurethane (PU) resins: expensive, generally waterproof, and does not contain formaldehyde.

Below are some common engineered products:

 

Laminated Veener Lumber:

LVL is an engineered wood product which is produced by binding multiple layers of thin wood together with adhesives. LVL is strong, straight and uniform in nature. Unlike other boards it is resistant to moisture, shrinking, swelling, etc. These boards are poor fire resilient

  • CHARECTERISTICS: Strong, durable and resistant to weather conditions.

  • USAGE:: Headers, beams, furniture, frames, roofing, flooring, etc.
