The Final Word by Helen Roush

UPM recently announced new innovations in responsible wood construction. Specially treated plywood products developed by UPM Plywood increase the diversity of wood as a construction material.

In its article, UPM stated: "as a renewable and carbon-storing raw material, wood is a responsible choice. It is also a safe and functional material from the perspective of those using the building. Now that wood construction is becoming more and more popular, we want to promote the better usability of wood. Our speciality products - which have been especially developed for wood construction - meet this demand, says Olli Wirén, End Use Manager at UPM Plywood."

UPM further stated that "The product is made of sustainably grown and sourced wood, and the wood-based surface treatment material does not contain any harmful chemicals. The water-repellent surface also helps to prevent moisture-related structural or health problems, because less moisture ends up in the structure, says Wirén."
