High quality birch plywood, made from 1.4 mm veneers, for use in visually demanding applications and end uses, e.g. in furniture and interior lining applications.

For structural properties see 'Handbook of Finnish plywood' (visit manufacturer's website for details).

For appearance grades see WISA-Birch guide to surface appearance (visit manufacturer's website for details).

Shapes, profiles and drillings can be machined to specifier's drawings.

As wood is a living material, every panel is unique. Thus a photograph or a sample piece cannot represent all variations in colour, shade, graining, knots, etc.
