Combat Humidity with Apple Ply’s HDHMR Plywood
Owing to its high moisture-resistant properties, the Apple ply’s HDHMR plywood finds applications in areas with a greater probability of moisture or wetness. Primarily designed for interior applications, the HDHMR board is used in kitchen cupboards, bathroom vanities, laundry cupboards, shelving, and other places that are prone to moisture.
Some unique features of HDHMR ply include its homogeneous structure and uniform properties which ensure uniform strength throughout the material. It can be painted to look just like wood and it will not expand and contract due to heat and humidity. It also has a high screw retention strength on its face and edges, and it can be moulded, profiled, routed, and grooved just like natural wood. And to top it off, the HDHMR plywood can also be laminated, veneered, lacquered, painted, or coated with PVC.
