Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) is an engineered wood product that uses multiple layers of thin wood assembled with adhesives. It offers several advantages over typical milled lumber. it is stronger, straighter, and more uniform. It is much less likely than conventional lumber to warp, twist, bow, or shrink due to its composite nature. Internally, it is a compact structure which makes it highly stable dimensionally. Made in a factory under controlled specifications, LVL products allow users to reduce the onsite labour. In the time to come, we predict that the use of LVL will widen up and it will find application in many more new things.
They are typically used for headers, beams, and edge-forming material. Now-a-days, door and window frames where wood was used, is also replaced by LVL.
Bigwig marine plywood is specially treated plywood that is designed to resist rotting in a high-moisture environment. It is manufactured with utmost care in the supervision of technical experts with well selected pieces of core and face veneers. Further, the finished plywood is subjected to proper chemical treatment with water-soluble fixed type preservatives under vacuum pressure to ensure protection against wood destroying organism and to make the product insects, borer, termites and fungi free. Being highly resistant plywood to changes in weather and atmospheric conditions, Marine plywood is used for all types of woodworking in marine and sea going vessels. It also finds good application in air-freight container making. Now-a-days, instead of using the normal plywood, Marine plywood can be used in kitchens and bathrooms.
