“UPM Grada Plywood” – the greatest invention in many years in plywood industry. “UPM Grada” is a thermoplastic plywood that can be formed into desired form by heating. In addition to the ability of post-forming, the product has other interesting properties compared to the conventional plywood. In my thesis, I studied these properties. Moisture resistance was clearly superior and strength properties appeared more consistent compared to conventional plywood. What else has this new invention to offer? Come and discover more in the exhibition!

    Mielenkiintoinen tieto vanerinkäsittelyksi. Voisiko vaneria taivutella useampaan suuntaan samanaikaisesti eli syntyisikö veneenmuoto puristusprosessissa ?
