The number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the specified in this standard. IS 303 : 1975 provided for four grades of plywood based on the type of adhesive used and ten types of plywood depending upon the visual features of face and back thus making a total of as many as 40 classes of plywood. CED 20 FOREWORD This Indian Standard ( Third Revision ) was adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards on 21 December 1989. the final value. In the formulation of this standard. In the second revision of the standard. expressingthe result of a test or analysis. after the draft finalized by the Wood Products Sectional Committee had been approved by the Civil Engineering Division Council.Wood Products Sectional Committee.

Treatment as specified below shall be given to the plywood either at the veneer stage or after converting the veneers into boards.1. Alternatively.1 Plywood for general purposes shall be classified into three types.1 Treatment Veneers from non-durable species and sapwood of all species when used for plywood manufacture shall be soaked in 1’25 percent solution of boric acid or 1’9 percent solution of borax at a temperature of 85-90°C for a period of I O-40 minutes depending upon the thickness of the veneers or the veneers may be dipped in 2 percent solution of boric acid or 3 percent borax solution for 2 minutes and block stacked at least for two hours.1 Extenders conforming to IS 1508 : 1972 may be used with the synthetic resin adhesive ( aminoresins ). shall conform to the 1 definitions requirements given in Table 1. and b) Moisture resistant or MR Grade.1 These shall be manufactured in accordance with 6.1. However. However. the maximum number of categories of defects permitted on any one surface of the panel shall be restricted in accordance with the requirements laid down in Table 2.1 Timber Any species of timber may be used for plywood manufacture. Type AB shall have face of quality A and the back of quality B and Type BB shall have both the surfaces of quality B. The type of plywood shall denote first the quality of face followed by the quality of back.1 and 6.1 The veneers for all the grades shall be either rotary cut or sliced. 4. the given in IS 707 : 1976 shall apply. therefore. 5. Type AA shall have both surfaces of quality A. 7 MANUFACTURE 7. a list of species. AB and BB based on the quality of the two surfaces. AA.
