Important to know about plywood
Caring for you and your library is important to us at Eurobib Direct. We want to be able to offer you quality, affordable products you can rely on. We offer a wide range of products and several of them are made of materials such as birch plywood, with or without laminate.
Here are some background facts:
- Birch plywood can be roughly divided into three grades: A, B and C (A is the highest grade).
- From a single birch log, approx. 75% becomes grade C veneer, 20% grade B, and the rest grade A.
- All of our current products are manufactured from the B sub category BB/BB or B/BB.
- Grade BB/BB is preferably used for products with high pressure laminate (HPL) applied to the surface in order to provide the best possible surface for adhesion. The exemption to this is the Memphis modules, where we chose the higher B/BB grade.
As a customer, we want you to feel confident about what birch plywood is, its different grades, and what distinguishes it.
We follow “Norms of restrictions of plywood processing defects in accordance with the requirements of STO (corporate standard) 00255177-001-2013”
