Advantages and disadvantages of plywood
The advantages of plywood
Reasonable use of logs without sawdust. Light bulk density, high strength, beautiful texture, insulation, small deformation, convenient construction, no warping, good tensile resistance.
Disadvantages of plywood
Cost is higher, not as bright as the medium density fiberboard surface layer. There is no sufficient drying or production process problems, resulting in plywood deformation, external force is difficult to adjust. Do basic level with splint, when agglutinate fire prevention board, aluminous model board to wait for fancy plywood again on the surface, do basic level firm as medium density board.
