Plywood is said to be a quite expensive material used in construction, the price of plywood with film coating is approximately about 4003700 baht per piece depending on thickness and quality. Using plywood material is therefore costly for the projection overall thud, the contractors should know how to effectively use and maintain the material in order to maximise its lifetime value.
On the site project,when we design structural setting for the project plywood can be used in different purposes ranging from scaffolding to table-form construction. However, when it is time to remove those plywoods, it will be done by levering, breaking and prising therefore, the efficiency and quality of the plywood will be obviously affected. Sometimes, plywood is left without any cleaning and by being left it can be affected by unpredicted weather condition for example: being affected by rain today, being received too much sunshine tomorrow. Furthermore in the worse case, the certain part of the plywood is sometimes cut for the use but the remaining part itself is left without applying any waterproof spray which means the plywood can be damaged by water getting in. Hence, in this article we would like to share some tricks and tips about how to properly maintain and use the plywood supposing to maximise its efficiency and lifetime value. This will also help the contractors to minimise their project cost in overall
- Every time the plywood is being used there will be holes around it, these holes should be properly blocked to prevent water getting in.
Cleaning and Repairing
To effectively maximise its efficiency and value, the plywood should be cleaned after each use by wiping with stain remover liquid or simply with water. Sometimes polishing machine is necessary however this must be carefully used in order to prevent the damage on the plywood surface. In addition to this, make sure that metal brush and mental polishing tool must not be used in cleaning.
