What is Interior Plywood?
Just as the name suggests, interior grade plywood is most suitable for internal applications in homes and offices. It is your first choice for non-structural indoor applications which need an aesthetic finish. While you will never want it for a garden chair, you can make great use of it for your indoor furniture, inner roof linings, ceilings, interior claddings and walls. The interior plywood can be made with slots and perforations to cater to the Sonapanel range of acoustic plywood.
General Features of Interior Plywood
Unlike exterior plywood which uses Phenol resin, interior plywood uses UF (Urea Formaldehyde) resin which does not counter moisture effectively. This is the reason why interior plywood is prone to water damage. While decorative laminates using melamine or Phenol can increase its water resistance considerably, it is still best suited to interior applications.
While storing and handling interior plywood, make sure that you keep it dry and under cover. The cover should not be tight and must not exhibit condensation.
