WHY THE POPLAR VENEER ARE IN SHORT SUPPLY ?ESPECIALLY THE TOP GRADE CORE VENEER USED FOR THE PLYWOOD UNDER THE FACE/BACK VENEER ?
Why still so huge volume joint core (Like veneer blockboard core ) film faced plywood to middle east and Africa and Asia even to Europe ?
Really huge volume as its cheap prices and stable quality used for regular construction (not high building not supporting heavy materials ).
The core is recycled film faced or regular plywood sanded to 11 to 13mm as the joint core ,we can call them lumber veneer core like blockboard core ,but it is not solid lumber ,it is veneer blockboard.
They used huge top grade poplar veneer for the crossband and short grain top/bottom under the film of the film faced plywood,that is one of the biggest problem caused the shortage of the poplar core veneer also .
When you visited chinese plywood factories,you can find the joint even at many of the factories .The importers they like low prices and low quality .
veneer Joint core used for plywood come from Hebei Xingtai normally …
these joint core are normally used for film faced plywood …
the quality has been improved a lot these years ,good strength …
More than 300 joint core factories there in xingtai ,hebei province.Mostly ship to linyi and xuzhou pizhou area…
these joint core are normally recycled from the building construction sites ,disused film faced plywodo .
I think why we can not import from foreign especially the australia and european the ful lbirch ffp and then use them to make our recycled ffp ?this is should be good busienss if we can do this .
BECAREFUL THE RECYCLED JOINT CORE DELAMINATION PROBLEMS WHEN USE THEM TO DO JOINT CORE PLYWOOD
these joint core are used for the plywood for one-off use .
But make sure checking every pieces of the joint core before laminating the top and bottom layers of poplar no veneer delamination .
See the pictures,it will make the finished plywood blister or delaminated .
Just be careful .
