Properties of panel surface

  • Wear resistance (Taber DIN 53799) average 570 cycles.
  • Rolling test (SS 923502) 1750 cycles
  • Improved water resistance through coating.
  • Chemical resistance: endures mild alkalis.
  • Direct exposure to sunlight may accelerate the ageing and colour changes to the surface.

Strength values

  • As per the Handbook of Finnish Plywood.
  • The strength of the scarfjoint is abt 10-30% less than that of standard panels.

Recommendations for use

  • Suitable for flooring applications where big localised loadings do not occur.
  • Scarfjointed one piece floors give large seamless surfaces.
