As we know, wood comes in different forms for processing. We usually get this type of wood in the form of sheets. A few of the commonly-used forms are plywood, MDF (medium-density fiberboard) and OSB (oriented strand board).
And for them, there are different production processes and uses:
Plywood is made of three or more layers veneer materials, rotary-cutted or sliced from wood, which normally in odd number veneer layers, sticked by glue, and the adjacent veneer fiber direction perpendicular to each other.
1. Plywood used for interior decoration, room furniture, packing decorate, etc;
2. Exterior plywood finds use in external walls;
3. Also have marine plywood for building boats and use it in a marine environment.
a. Uniform Strength
b. Easy to cut
c. Available in large sizes
d. Reduces wastage
e. Versatile and durable
MDF is an engineered wood product made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure.
1. MDF can be used as a building material
2. suitable for shelves and cabinets, speaker boxes, and flooring.
a. Cheaper than plywood
b. Smooth with no knots
c. A suitable substrate for veneer
d. Consistently homogenous
e. Easier to cut than plywood
f. Possible to create decorative edges with a router
OSB, also known as flakeboard, is a type of engineered lumber similar to particle board, formed by oil removing, drying, adding adhesives and then compressing layers of wood strands(flakes) in specific orientations.
You can use OSB board in flooring for a cost-effective flooring solution or as a sub-floor under a layer of hardwood flooring or vinyl flooring. We also use it for roof sheathing and furniture. Unlike with plywood, you don’t need to paint it or apply any top layer – you can use OSB directly for making furniture, and it provides an elegant finish to the surfaces.
a. Versatile material
b. Consistent density
c. Cost-effective option
d. Pliable material, OSB has a greater load-bearing capactity than milled wood panels.
e. OSB panels have no internal gaps or voids, and are water-resistant.
