Page 12 - Panels Panels for construction and industrial applications can be manufactured in a variety of ways: as plywood (cross-laminated wood veneer), as composites (veneer faces bonded to reconstituted wood cores), or as nonveneered panels (including waferboard, oriented strand board, and certain specific classes of particleboard). Some grades of veneered panels are manufactured under the provisions of US Product Standard PS1, Construction...
