Block board is a wood based panel, made up of a core of softwood strips glued together. The strips may be wide and are placed edge to edge and sandwiched between veneers of softwood, hardwood glued under high pressure. They are bonded with Urea Formaldehyde under high pressure and temperature. Cutting edge technology and special composing ensure that our boards are totally plain and uniform. Utmost care is taken to ensure no gaps, overlapping or corrugation which eliminates the chance of opening up of the board when cut. The internal strips are generally made of light weight rubber wood or other jungle wood. Block board is used to make doors, tables, shelves, paneling and partition walls. It is normally used for interior usages, due to the type of glues used. To achieve maximum strength, it is ensured that the core runs lengthways.
It is much more expensive than standard plywood. There are few international standards for grading marine plywood and most of the standards are voluntary. Some plywood is also labeled based on the wood used to manufacture it.
