Why Plywood?

Why Plywood?

Exceptional Strength & Flexibility

Vitawood chooses to specialize in plywood over other wood types primarily because of their exceptional strength and flexibility, making it highly-effective for numerous applications from furniture to house construction.

Plywood is a versatile building material formed by bonding together thin layers of wood veneers using adhesive, usually in a cross-grain pattern. This layered structure enhances its strength and stability, as each layer counteracts the natural weaknesses of the others. The alternating grain directions add to plywood’s resistance to warping,
twisting, and cracking, ensuring reliability and longevity in whatever it is used for.
