Russian birch plywood is a uniquely manufactured birch plywood that uses multiple ply’s of birch veneer throughout the panel. The resulting Baltic birch plywood has a void-free core. Inner plies are solid birch veneer, cross-banded, and laminated with an exterior grade adhesive. This makes it the highest quality engineered flooring substrate and underlayment.
All of our Baltic birch plywood is not only manufactured to the highest standards but undergoes strict quality control procedures. All of the Russian birch plywood is scanned using blow detection to ensure a void-free plywood core. Blow detection automatically detects any unglued areas or voids throughout the plywood panel.

Baltic birch is a light grained wood with fairly uniform color – an attractive appearance. With a void-free core and birch
Unlike most other hardwood plywood, the core layers of Baltic birch hardwood plywood are birch veneers, rather than a softer, secondary wood. This construction creates a void-free core, resulting in a material where screws bite and hold with 100% of their threads. Conversely, traditional veneer core plywood has voids with softer materials in the core, so screws don’t get the same bite. The same holds for machinability. A void-free core and the wood characteristics of Baltic birch result in superior machinability.
All plywood runs a risk of warping. Baltic birch is not immune to warping and bowing, it’s still a wood product. However, Baltic birch has the odds stacked in its favor much better than other plywood. The cross-banded layers of birch veneer make the sheets balanced, promoting a flatter product.
