Plywood is a type of engineered wood made from thin sheets of wood, called plies or wood veneers. The layers are glued together, each with its grain at right angles for greater strength. There are usually an odd number of plies, as the symmetry makes the board less prone to warping.
Medium-density fiberboard (MDF) is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down softwood into wood fibres, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and a reind binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure.
Particleboard is cheaper, denser and more uniform than conventional wood and plywood and is substituted for them when appearance and strength are less important than cost.
Melamine is an ideal panel for applications where a white finish is desired because the surface does not require any painting or finishing. Applications include shelving for the kitchen, laundry, wardrobes and other furniture.
Blockboard is a wood based panel, made up of a core of softwood strips glued together.
Bare core is strips of solid wood glued together, Pinako uses Albasia / Albazia falcata (locally known as Sengon) for its core production.
