SVEZA Group has launched a new product — SVEZA Parquet plywood. The new product is available in two versions — SVEZA Parquet Standard and SVEZA Parquet Premium. SVEZA is the first company among plywood manufacturers to offer parquet producers a special-purpose product that completely satisfies their key requirements (optimum moisture level, tight thickness tolerance, and superior strength properties).
SVEZA has been supplying plywood to parquet manufacturers for a long time already; however, the production previously took place per individual orders. “We analyzed the needs of engineered flooring producers and came to the conclusion that we could combine them in a separate, special-purpose product” says Natalya Bugayskaya, Furniture/Interior segment manager.
SVEZA Parquet Standard plywood is made of 100% birch raw materials and satisfies the key requirements of parquet manufacturers. The new product is produced using WBP glue, and complies with the stringent requirements for thickness (±0.2 mm tolerance) and moisture content (5–9%). The product is supplied in bundles wrapped in film and covered with a plywood facing on top.
SVEZA Parquet Premium plywood is intended for luxury engineered flooring producers who require the ultimate quality of the parquet base. The product has superior bonding strength (internal bonding strength test results > 1.75 MPa). This is achieved by using selected veneers with minimum defects for the inner layers of the plywood.
“Luxury parquet is used in major image-building projects where any defect can lead to significant financial and reputation losses. To guarantee our customers a high quality product, SVEZA performs regular tests developed in cooperation with parquet manufacturers,” says Bugayskaya.
This approach is especially valued by foreign customers. “For 15 years, the SVEZA Group has demonstrated a high quality of plywood and service,” comments Francesco Marinacci representing the Margaritelly company (Italy), a premium parquet manufacturer. The use of SVEZA Parquet plywood ensures both best performance of the finished product and lower manufacturing costs. Today, SVEZA branded products are used by such parquet manufacturers as Heppner (USA), Parkett Herter (Germany), Mopar (Croatia), Mardegan Legno (Hungary), and FB Hout (Netherlands).
SVEZA Parquet plywood became the sixth new product in the company’s product portfolio.
