Differences between LVL and Plywood
Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) is a kind of material that is made of thick veneers Laminated along the grain direction, hot pressed, glued and sawn; Plywood plywood is a three layer or multi-layer board like material made of wood segments cut into veneer or wood planing into veneer, and then glued with adhesives. It is usually made of odd layers of veneer, and the fiber directions of adjacent layers of veneer are perpendicular to each other.
The big difference between the two lies in the formation of veneer, hot pressing and later treatment. From the perspective of production techniques, LVL boards are more complex in production and processing procedures, and plywood is relatively simpler.
1. Their names are different, the structure of plates is different, and the compression resistance and firmness are different. Plywood belongs to multilayer board, which is made of multilayer wood by brushing glue.
LVL and plywood can be divided according to the horizontal and vertical directions of the veneer arrangement. LVL and plywood are all in the same direction, and plywood are arranged horizontally and vertically. The structures of the two kinds of boards are different, so there will be differences in performance. Each has its own emphasis, toughness and stability, which can be checked.
2. An important factor affecting the quality of the board is glue. Generally, the veneer is similar. The glue brushed on the veneer is different in quality and use.
