Plywood Core Information

Hardwood plywood cores are the layers between the hardwood or decorative softwood face and back veneers. The core of the panel will influence the properties of the plywood panels such as water resistance, stability, strength, flatness, screw holding ability, weight, and cost.

Plywood Core Types

Classic Core

Classic CoreClassic Core combines MDF cross bands with softwood veneer innerplies. The MDF cross bands provide an ultra smooth surface to reduce telegraphing through the face, while the veneer innerplies maintain the strength and screw-holding power of a veneer core panel. This option is recommended for high-end veneers.

Veneer Core

Veneer CoreVeneer core is constructed using innerplies composed of Western softwoods. Veneer core panels are lightweight, dimensionally stable and have excellent screw-holding capacity.Classic Core combines MDF cross bands with softwood veneer innerplies. The MDF cross bands provide an ultra smooth surface to reduce telegraphing through the face, while the veneer innerplies maintain the strength and screw-holding power of a veneer core panel. This option is recommended for high-end veneers.

Medium Density Fiber Core

Fiber Core(MDF) makes for a very smooth, consistent panel. This is a great substrate for high-end veneer and for applications when routing and shaping are required.

Multi-Core, Euro Core

Also present in Baltic Birch, this core consist of 13 layers of Birch when referring to 3/4″ thickness (18mm or 19mm) or 9 layers when referring to 1/2″ thickness (12mm). Usually imported from Eastern Europe or Scandinavia these boards are heavier and more rigid than conventional plywood boards with excellent screw holding ability and available in interior or exterior grades
