States Industries ApplePly® is a premium quality veneer core panel constructed from uniform laminations of solid grade 1/16” Birch. This solid hardwood core produces a strong, lightweight panel with a minimum number of voids and a naturally attractive edge. These panels contain no-added urea formaldehyde and are available Forest Stewardship Council certified.
Sizes & Tolerances
ApplePly® is manufactured in 4’ widths and 8’ lengths, some thicknesses are available in 10’ lengths. Thicknesses range from ¼” 5 ply through 1 7/16” 27
ply. Tolerances comply with American National Standards Institute (ANSI/HPVA) grade rules, HP-1-2004.
Uniformly thin core veneers laminated at right angles produces an attractive visual edge that is often used as a primary design element in furniture, fixtures and architectural installations. ApplePly® is also popular for use as drawer sides because of its appearance when left unbanded. Alternating end grain and edge grain absorbs stain and finish at different rates, producing a pleasing light and dark layered effect.
Like all States Industries’ products, ApplePly® can be ordered with States’ NOVA® ultraviolet cured finish; clear, translucent or opaque, and in satin, medium or high gloss. Custom gloss levels are also available in larger quantities. In addition, we offer custom color matching. Accurate color matching is the hallmark of States’ NOVA® finishes.
Because ApplePly® is made from low density hardwood veneers, and because it has few voids, it machines beautifully without tearing or fuzzing. For example, bull nosed drawer edges are a popular application.
ApplePly® is manufactured without the use of ureaformaldehyde adhesives, and meets California Air Resources Board’s stringent air quality standards. Additionally, ApplePly® is available Forest Stewardship Council certified.
