5 REASONS WHY BALTIC BIRCH IS A PREFERABLE HARDWOOD PLYWOOD

5 REASONS WHY BALTIC BIRCH IS A PREFERABLE HARDWOOD PLYWOOD

1. Attractive Appearance

Baltic birch is a light grained wood with fairly uniform color – an attractive appearance. With a void-free core and birch plys used throughout, you have the option to leave the edges exposed if you like the look. The exposed edges sometimes have an appearance that works for the project, and this saves you time and material. Simply sand and finish the edges. The face and back can be stained when you need a different color. To keep the uniform, light color, simply finish baltic birch with a basic clear top coat of lacquer or polyurethane.

2. Superior Screw Holding & Machinability

Unlike most other hardwood plywood, the core layers of Baltic birch hardwood plywood are birch veneers, rather than a softer, secondary wood. This construction creates a void-free core, resulting in a material where screws bite and hold with 100% of their threads. Conversely, traditional veneer core plywood has voids with softer materials in the core, so screws don’t get the same bite. The same holds for machinability. A void-free core and the wood characteristics of Baltic birch result in superior machinability. 

3. Strength and Stability

All plywood runs a risk of warping. Baltic birch is not immune to warping and bowing, it’s still a wood product. However, Baltic birch has the odds stacked in its favor much better than other plywood. The cross-banded layers of birch veneer make the sheets balanced, promoting a flatter product. Alternating the direction of the Baltic birch plys throughout results in a very stable plywood product.

4. Cleaner Joinery

The uniform birch veneer layers of the core, mean you’ll get clean dadoes, rabbets, dovetails, miters, and, when appropriate, great looking joints. Because the core is free of voids, your joinery will get 100% glue coverage. 

5. Wide Variety of Grades Adds Value 

The grades of Baltic birch hardwood plywood are unique and built to help users choose a product that fits the needs for the finished product. A variety of appearance grades lets users identify what grade they need on each side, saving money and adding value.
