Limitations on Use

Increased moisture content or temperature variation may cause internal stresses causing previously flat sheets to bow. This is particularly applicable to Hoop ply as it is a softwood timber.

At Plymasters precautions are taken to minimise this effect. However, once the panel has left the warehouse Plymasters cannot guarantee sheets to remain flat unless fastened. This is particularly important where free standing kitchen/cabinet doors are concerned. Stack on a firm raised base with enough support to prevent sagging. Cover the pallet to protect top and edges.
