Panels of Laminates

 

Laminate panel is a type of manufactured timber made from thin sheets of substrates or wood veneer. It is similar to the more widely used plywood, except that it has a plastic, protective layer on one or both sides. Laminate panels are used instead of plywood because of their resistance to impact, weather, moisture, shattering in cold (ductility), and chemicals.

 

Laminate panel layers (called veneers) are glued together with adjacent plies having their grain at right angles to each other for greater strength. The plastic layer(s) added for protection vary in composition, thickness, color and texture according to the application.

 

1 Types

 

A number of varieties of laminate panel exist for different applications.

 

        Plywood + ABS laminate panels

        Plywood + FRP laminate panels

        Plywood + aluminum laminated panels

        Lightweight composite panels

 

2 Sizes

 

The most commonly used thickness range from 1/8" to 1/2" and 3/8", in a variety of colours and textures.

 

3 Applications

 

Laminate panels are used in many applications that need weather-proof, impact resistant sheet material. Typical end uses of spruce plywood are:

 

        Floors, walls and roofs in cleanrooms

        Vehicle internal body work

 

        Packages and boxes

       Road cases
