Baltic Birch has long been the plywood of choice for applications such as drawer sides, table tops, store fixtures, and children’s toys, where the exposed multi-ply edge offers are visible and require no additional edge banding. In addition to the multi-ply construction and uniform thickness of core veneers, being aesthetically attractive, this unique construction offers unmatched strength and stability.
North American plywood manufacturers and custom laminators now see the benefits of using Baltic Birch as a core material. We have developed a true platform panel from Russia that is manufactured with the face and back veneer orientation running the width of the panel, so our customers can re-veneer the panel with wood veneer or high-pressure laminate, keeping the long grain face veneer at a right angle to the core veneer. The panel is produced slightly oversized in a 98″x49″ format to allow the customer to trim the panel back to the standard 48″x 96″ format after lamination. The thickness of our Baltic Birch panels is manufactured slightly under standard finished thickness to allow for the panel to be built up to finished thickness once a core and balancing back veneer is applied. Baltic Birch platforms have the same tight tolerances that are seen in standard Baltic Birch panels, but special tolerances can be arranged.
Baltic Birch platforms are manufactured with no added Urea Formaldehyde glue, and the same waterproof glue line used in our marine plywood. Baltic Birch platforms are available from each of our warehouse distribution facilities and are available with as FSC™ certified upon request.
