Phenolic plywood birch dark brown: what is it?

As the name suggests, phenolic plywood birch is made up of birch veneer layers. These veneer layers are the same colour, so that the side view of the sheets gives a sleek result. The veneer layers are externally bonded through a crosswise connection. Birch is characterized by its strong and stable properties. The crosswise connection of the veneer layers makes the sheet strong and prevents bending. However, it still has a wooden core that allows phenolic plywood to warp.

The sheet is suitable for intensive use. Because birch is naturally is very smooth, the top layer is smooth and of high quality.
