Plywood has been used in building many homes and commercial constructions and is often used for walls, ceilings and more. There is a number of different plywoods available on the market. All plywood types vary from its usage to its composition. Each type of plywood has its own benefits, purpose and negatives. Below is a list of the different plywoods available on the market and what they are best used for.

  • MDF is medium density fibre core hardwood plywood, it is stable material and every batch you get will have the same consistency. Also when using MDF it rarely chips when being cut up due to the wood veneers being so tightly bonded together.

  • MDO and HDO or otherwise known as medium and high density overlay plywood. This type of wood is wrapped with fibre and is generally considered as ordinary veneer ply but coated with MDF. This plywood is studier and more durable than your average MDF.

  • VC or Veneer core hardwood plywood is made from alternate layers of common plywood; it has a veneer finish and a grainy wood finish. This plywood is stronger, light weight and super easy to work with.

  • Lumber core plywood is also a variety that is made from hardwood like basswood. This type of plywood is one of the most expensive as it is generally used for areas that are exposed.

  • PBC particle board core plywood is made up of coarse dust compared to the MDF. You will find that this particular plywood is often not consistent, is light weight but generally smooth. Generally products made of melamine have PBC in it.

  • Melamine plywood is thermally fused with a resin saturated finish; it is abrasive but stain resistant. The grade of melamine depends on its usage; it can be smooth, coarse, brittle or soft and can be used for a variety of applications.
