Thermal Properties - Austral Plywoods

Thermal Expansion. Wood (and plywood) expand upon heating as do practically all solids. The thermal expansion of plywood is quite small. The average co-efficient of thermal expansion of plywood is 4.5 x 10-6mm/mm/oC. Thermal Conductivity. The ability of a material to conduct heat is measured by its thermal

Dimensional Stability & Flatness - Performance Panels

The average coefficient of hygroscopic expansion or contraction in length and width for plywood panels is about 0.0002 inch per inch for each 10 percent change in equilibrium relative humidity. The total change from oven dry to fiber saturation averages about 0.2 percent. Expansion of a plywood panel that is free to move

Little data are available on the thermal expansion of natural solid wood, plywood, impreg, compreg, and papreg, and none on staypak, and hydro- lyzed wood, plastics and laminated sheets. Consequently, the studies here- in reported were made at the Forest Products Laboratory in an effort to obtain such data.

Plywood - Proper Installation & Handling - Ask the BuilderAsk the

When water vapor levels rise, the cells within a piece of plywood pick up the water. The cells begin to expand ever so slightly. This expansion is greatest along the face of the grain of a piece of wood. This means that on a piece of 4 x 8 plywood, you can experience expansion due to swelling across the 4 foot dimension as
