20.8.2017 0:00 EEST


WISA-Spruce Special is a smooth, strong, lightweight, multipurpose plywood panel with superior surface quality and impressive credentials. The panel is as tough as the regular WISA-Spruce, typically used in load bearing structures, but the refined look and smooth surface makes it suitable for other uses as well including shop fittings, joinery, furniture and DIY use.

WISA-Spruce Special is a well-known trade name for WISA-Spruce with solid surface. In the EN 635-5 standard, the Grade II spruce plywood is the best quality, allowing some open defects on the surface. The face quality in WISA-Spruce Special is even better, it is UPM’s premium grade G, without any open defects.

The great appearance of the panel has not affected other properties such as strength, stability, durability, workability or environmental sustainability. The panel is ideal for projects highlighting environmental concerns and great quality.
