Super-sized plywood

Vaneria saa nyt supermitassa

Almost all of Koskisen’s products are available in so-called super sizes. The plywood chosen by the customer can be joined to create panels of up to 2,900 x 13,500 millimetres in size.

According to Product Manager Timo Linna, customers have taken to the product fairly well.

- Plywood tailored to suit the customer can now be delivered in special sizes. The super-sized option has been especially popular within the formwork and transportation vehicle industries, which often require a single panel for creating broad surfaces, he explains.

The super-sized panel is  scarf jointed, which has a strength of around 80 per cent of the strength of a joint-free panel.
