After heat treatment and steaming plywood becomes plastic.Under the influence of a humid environment and a high temperature, this material is significantly softened, making it much easier to bend.
Enlarge plasticity of plywood can be, warming it in a closed oven in the round pegs or just hold over an open fire (do not desiccate plywood , because of too high a temperature, the material will crack at the fold).
During drying plywood periodically moisten with water harvesting.
In the process, one end of the plywood thoroughly secure and the other firmly hold hands.
If you bend the right length harvesting complex configurations, use the special template, designed as a steel strip: cable plywood to the steel strip, and then bend it with the template (steel strip will prevent the cracking products).Then the workpiece and attached steel strip leave to dry.
There is another way to bend plywood and products made from it.Dampen with water harvesting, and then iron the iron it.Then bend the plywood , then soak her outside again and again iron the iron.This method allows you to bend the six-millimeter plywood , and so that the product does not appear cracks.
Tip 2: How to bend plywood
In the manufacture of wood products often need to give them a curved shape.Sometimes you can get by sawing curly details, but often this is not permitted for reasons of economy or material because of declining strength of the wooden structure.Often the desired curved shape can be achieved by bending the blank.How, for example, curved plywood ?
- Water, cloth, iron, pattern
Before you begin bending the sheet of plywood, you must know that the wood getsflexibility after suitable heat treatment or steaming.In selecting the material for subsequent bending, check to see if the surface of the sheet pronounced deformed parts, dents, cracks.If no action is taken, the ground deformation veneer can crack.
Selected plywood plentifully moisten with water.The easiest way to mark the spot of the future pre-fold and to impose it on both sides with wet rags for a few hours.Thereafter, the sheet is folded carefully.
Another option involves the use of the preparation of plywood hot iron.Using this method in the case flexing of plywood is special template.Plywood is moistened with water and heated from two sides hot iron, and then folded.In the process it is advisable to periodically apply a bending iron to the outside (convex) of the sheet.
Bending plywood produce along the outer layers.Plasticity of the veneer can be further improved if its pre-soaked for 2-3 hours in ammonia water.
- Bending wood
Plywood just soak in cold water: due to the hot water harvesting will begin to flake.
To prevent warping products made of plywood, wipe the blank (two or three) of hot linseed oil or put it into a heated drying oil and leave it there for a day.Then the plywood blot with a soft cloth and dry (drying of leaves to complete 10-15 days).
