Solid wood panels, chipboard and plywood panels

Wood panels are available in different materials. A basic distinction can be made between solid wood panels, chipboard and plywood panels. The variants differ significantly in appearance, properties and possible uses.

solid wood panel

Solid timber

Solid wood panels consist of wood through and through. As a rule, wooden slats are glued in parallel to achieve the desired panel size. The advantage of these glued solid wood panels (also called glued wood) compared to a panel made from a piece of tree is that they warp significantly less. The solid wood panels are extremely stable and can be easily cut to size, which is why they are suitable for individual cuts to measure.

chipboard

chipboard

Chipboard consists of wood chips, which are pressed under high pressure and high temperature with binding agents to form boards. The pressed layer is then covered with a decoration, a colored foil. These boards are hardly recognizable as wood. Chipboard is inexpensive, does not warp and has a smooth surface thanks to the coating. Disadvantages are their artificial appearance and the fact that scratches and nicks cannot be sanded off with these plates.

plywood

plywood

Plywood panels are also called veneer wood, since several layers of veneer are glued on top of each other. Plywood panels are cheap with a plastic coating and slightly more expensive than real wood veneer. It is important with these panels that the top and bottom are always treated in the same way, otherwise one-sided tension can occur. Plywood panels can hardly be sanded due to their thin layers.
