DETAILS

Uses: Construction of models and furniture proto-types.

The possibility to produce large sized sheets, along with the light weight of the panel, result in Poplar plywood being the most used product in Italy for facing (with melamine paper and laminates) and plaquing (with engineered veneers). Sheet glueing is generally with ureic Class 1 glue (for work in dry interior environments) and, on request, with melamine Class  2 glue (for covered exterior environments).
