HW Structural CD Plywood 2400 x 1200mm 12mm
HW Structural CD Plywood has been manufactured at our plant in China, for in excess of 15 years and has been used successfully in Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
Structural CD plywood is a type of plywood that is commonly used in construction and building projects. The term “CD” refers to the grade of the plywood, which is a lower grade than some of the other grades available.
Structural CD plywood is made by gluing together several layers, or plies, of thin sheets of wood veneer. The veneer is usually made from softwood species such as pine, spruce, or fir. The plies are then stacked on top of each other with the grain of each layer running in a perpendicular direction to the layer above and below it. This creates a strong and stable panel that is resistant to warping and splitting.
The “CD” grade of plywood means that the face veneers have some knots and other imperfections, and may have some patches or repairs. This grade is suitable for structural use in applications where appearance is not a primary concern, such as subflooring, roof sheathing, and wall sheathing. CD plywood is also commonly used in the construction of sheds, garages, and other outbuildings.
When using structural CD plywood, it is important to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for installation and fastening. Proper installation and fastening will ensure that the plywood performs as expected and provides a strong and durable base for the rest of the building.
HW Structural CD Plywood Feature
1. Strength and stability: Structural CD plywood is made by stacking multiple layers of wood veneer with the grain of each layer running perpendicular to the layer above and below it. This creates a panel that is strong and stable, with excellent resistance to warping and splitting.
2. Versatility: Structural CD plywood can be used for a variety of applications in construction, including subflooring, roof sheathing, and wall sheathing. It is also suitable for use in sheds, garages, and other outbuildings.
3. Affordable: CD plywood is a lower grade of plywood, which makes it more affordable than some of the higher-grade options. This makes it a cost-effective choice for many construction projects.
4. Easy to work with: CD plywood can be easily cut and shaped using standard woodworking tools. It is also relatively lightweight, which makes it easy to handle and transport.
5. Consistent quality: Because it is manufactured in a controlled environment, structural CD plywood is a consistent product with reliable performance characteristics. This makes it easier to plan and execute construction projects with predictable outcomes.

Advantages of HW Structural Plywood
Uses of HW Structural Plywood
As structural plywood contains veneers measured and tested for strength and stiffness, it has proven to be quite safe and reliable for use in commercial and industrial buildings. Whatever high loading criteria are required by building codes, structural plywood can be easily detailed to meet them. The same goes for any criteria set by building codes for fire, durability, energy efficiency, and moisture.
Structural plywood has proven to be popular for use both as interior and exterior cladding. Many homes today have ceilings and walls that make use of structural plywood as cladding. Because of its natural strength, structural plywood is also ideal for bracing, which effectively makes shaping and designing windows easier creatively. They are even resilient and strong enough to be used in agricultural buildings and sporting complexes as flooring.
Structural plywood is also commonly used for pallets, crates, boxes, storage decks, truck bodies, truck floors, cabinetry and displays, and hoardings such as billboards and furniture.
Q: What does the “CD” grade mean?
A: The “CD” grade refers to the appearance of the plywood. CD-grade plywood has knots and other imperfections, as well as patches or repairs. This grade is suitable for structural use where appearance is not a primary concern.
Q: Can I use structural CD plywood for flooring?
A: Yes, structural CD plywood can be used for subflooring or underlayment. However, if you’re looking for a smoother finish, you may want to consider a higher grade of plywood.
Q: How is structural CD plywood different from other grades of plywood?
A: Structural CD plywood is a lower grade than some of the higher grades, such as A or B. This means that it may have more imperfections, such as knots and patches, but it is still a strong and stable panel that is suitable for structural use.
Q: How do I fasten structural CD plywood?
A: Structural CD plywood can be fastened using screws or nails. The manufacturer’s guidelines should be followed to ensure proper installation and to determine the appropriate fastener spacing and size.
Q: Can I use structural CD plywood for exterior applications?
A: Yes, structural CD plywood is suitable for exterior applications such as roof sheathing and wall sheathing. However, it should be properly sealed and primed to protect against moisture damage.
