BB/CC Malaysian Plywood, phenol glue EN314-2
Hardwood plywood is characterised by its excellent strength, stiffness and resistance to creep which make it especially suitable for heavy-duty floor and wall structures.
Hardwood Plywood Grades
There are several different grades of hardwood plywood available:
- B face – Neatly cut one piece veneer, almost defect free and sanded smooth
- BB face – Minor defects are permitted within strict limits provided they are filled and sanded smooth.
- CC face – Permits all defects, open or closed, although limited in size and number. However, open defects are filled, and the CC face is generally sanded for the UK market although neither of these improvements is required by the Standard.
If you are to cut the MDF or Ply yourself, we would always recommend a competent person cuts the panel and the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) should always be worn. There harmful fibres are known to cause health issues so goggles, dust mask, ear defenders and gloves should be worn. We would recommend a respirator with a P2 Filter rating should be considered compared to a disposable dust mask. It is also recommended that any cutting is undertaken in a well-ventilated area.
