Effects of Thermo-Mechanical Densification Applied to Veneers of Fast-Growing Species to Produce Value-Added Plywood Panels

June 14, 2021 Agricultural Sciences 0

Plywood and other laminated panels are used in place of solid wood in a variety of applications. Densified wood veneers are of particular interest for the production of such composites. This chapter presents selected properties of densified veneers made of two fast-growing species, as well as a new plywood lay-up veneer structure for producing value-added panels for indoor applications. According to the findings of this study, the densification process improved the surface quality and gloss of the veneers, as well as providing a pleasing darker color to the veneers and the plywood made from them. The new plywood structure with alternate layers of densified and non-densified veneers proved to be an effective method for producing panels with improved properties.
