Plytanium® Plywood Roof Sheathing

What is the proper way to store plywood on the yard or on a job site?

Answer

Whenever possible, store panels under a roof. Keep sanded panels and appearance-grade products away from high-traffic areas to prevent damage to surfaces. Use pieces of lumber to weigh down the top panel in a stack to reduce warpage from humidity. If moisture absorption is expected, cut steel bands on bundles to prevent edge damage.

If panels must be stored outside, stack them on a level platform supported by at least three 4x4s to keep them off the ground. Place one 4×4 in the center and the other two 4x4s 12 to 16 inches from the ends. Never leave panels or the platform in direct contact with the ground.

Cover the stack loosely with plastic sheets or tarps. Anchor the covering at the top of the stack, but keep it open and away from the sides and bottom to ensure good ventilation. Tight coverings prevent air circulation and when exposed to sunlight, may promote mold or mildew. (Source: APA Builder Tip U450: Storage and Handling of APA Trademarked Panels)

Is there a difference between span ratings for OSB and plywood?

Answer

No, span ratings for similar thicknesses are the same.

What is the flame spread classification for plywood?

What is the difference between Exterior and Exposure 1 panels?

Answer

Exterior panels are suitable for applications subject to long-term exposure to weather or moisture, while panels classified as Exposure 1 are intended to resist the effects of moisture on structural performance as may occur due to construction delays, or other conditions of similar severity. Exposure 1 panels are made with the same exterior adhesives used in Exterior panels. However, because other compositional factors may affect bond performance, only Exterior panels should be used for long-term exposure to weather.

What is the difference between Structural 1 and Exposure 1 panels?

Answer

Structural I refers to certain specialized strength and stiffness characteristics of wood structural panels while the term Exposure 1 refers to the glue bond durability of a wood structural panel. Structural I, also referred to as “STRUC I”, may be OSB or plywood and is, essentially, a subcategory of APA Rated Sheathing. Panels designated Structural I must meet all of the manufacturing and performance standards of Rated Sheathing, as well as certain additional requirements.

The advantages of Structural I Rated Sheathing over standard Rated Sheathing panels of the same Performance Category are realized in certain specialized engineered applications such as engineered shear walls and engineered horizontal diaphragms. Specialized construction situations requiring installation of roof sheathing panels with the strength axis parallel to supporting structure also benefit from the use of Structural I sheathing. Structural I is of no additional benefit for other traditional construction applications. Consult a professional engineer for specific applications.

Can you paint plywood?

Answer

Yes, plywood can be painted using one coat of acrylic latex primer and at least two coats of acrylic latex paint. Oil-based paints are not recommended.

Can plywood be used for outdoor projects?

Answer

Plywood panels classified as “Exterior” are suitable for applications subject to long-term exposure to weather or moisture.

What does the stamp on my plywood panel mean?

Answer

On every Georgia-Pacific sheathing panel you should be able to find an APA grade stamp. This stamp is your assurance that the product is manufactured in accordance with the APA’s rigorous program of quality inspection and testing. The grade stamp on a panel also tells you a lot about the panel – the span rating, exposure rating, panel thickness and the building code approval the panel meets.

What does the "span rating" of a plywood panel mean?

Answer

Within the grade stamp on a panel you will find the span rating. When there are two numbers separated by a slash (i.e. 48/24), the first number is the maximum recommended center-to-center spacing for supports in inches when the panel is used for roof sheathing with the long dimension across supports. The second number is the maximum center-to-center spacing of supports in inches when the panel is used for sub-flooring with the long dimension across supports.

How many sheets are in a unit of plywood?

Answer

The number of panels in a unit of plywood varies depending on the type and thickness of product. On sheathing products, the piece count is typically stenciled on the side of the unit. Other products have corrugated side protectors that should indicate piece count. If you need a piece count and neither of those are visible please contact GP at 800-284-5347.

Does GP's wood come from sustainably managed forests?

Answer

Plywood panels from Georgia-Pacific are made from wood sourced through a system that is third-party certified to the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® procurement standard.

Do your panels meet formaldehyde emissions standards?

Answer

Yes, Georgia-Pacific plywood and OSB panels only use moisture resistant adhesives that contain no added urea formaldehyde resins, and are therefore exempt from U.S. EPA and California formaldehyde regulations due to their very low emission rates.

When used in the manufacture of crates and pallets, are Georgia-Pacific plywood and OSB safe for international shipping?

Answer

To prevent the introduction and spread of plant pests, ISPM 15: International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures, requires that internationally shipped solid wood pallets be debarked, treated with heat or fumigated with methyl bromide, and marked with a seal of compliance. Pallets made with engineered wood are exempt from ISPM 15 regulations. This is because the process of manufacturing engineered wood destroys any live organisms in the wood.

Plytanium is a trade name, registered to Georgia Pacific, the nation’s largest manufacturer of plywood products. It is their premium softwood plywood product and although not rated as such, it should probably be considered an ACX rated plywood. The Plytanium line of plywood products contains a number of different products, designed for different applications.

Plytanium panels are advertised to be “stiff and strong,” flatter than some other plywood products and clearly better able to handle impact, without breaking, than OSB and some other plywood products that it competes with. It also provides considerably less edge swell than OSB, which is notorious for this problem.

Check the price on Amazon

Since the general term “plywood” now means all plywood products, specifying Plytanium on a construction project ensures that a softwood plywood product, made of alternate wood veneers, bonded together by rosin, is used. Otherwise, simply specifying plywood could leave the contractor the wiggle room to use OSB to save money, as it meets building code and is a plywood product. While there is nothing wrong with OSB as a building material, it is not as strong as softwood plywood, regardless of what the building code says.

Georgia Pacific makes a number of claims about this plywood, including that it is “green-certified,” and that it has low formaldehyde emissions. This tells us that they have taken care to produce a quality softwood plywood product, which is using bonding resins that are less harmful than those used in some other plywood products. While not the only formaldehyde-free plywood product around, considering that formaldehyde is considered to be a carcinogen, using a plywood product in your home which is formaldehyde free, can provide a health benefit to your family.

Although Plytanium is not a “treated” plywood, it is an exterior grade plywood. That means that it can be used for home sheathing, without concern that it will delaminate due to rain during construction. This rating doesn’t mean that the plywood can be left exposed to the elements, without problem; merely that it can during the relatively short time that construction is going on.

Many Plytanium products are also sanded sheets, which is not common for most softwood plywood products, as they are used primarily for construction. However, many construction applications require a smooth surface, such as subflooring. By providing an already sanded surface, Plytanium reduces the labor necessary for subflooring prep or for use of their product for a variety of other non-construction projects.

Specifying Plytanium for any project ensures a quality softwood plywood product, which will provide strength and attractive appearance in the finished project. The quality level will be consistent, even if additional material is ordered to add to the project at some later date. It is available throughout the United States.

Plytanium Subflooring

Georgia Pacific’s Plytanium subflooring is referred to as “Sturd-I-Floor,” obviously intending to send a message to the buyer. It is designed to provide stiffness and stability and is available in 19/32”, 23/32” and 1-1/8” thick sheets. While 19/32” doesn’t meet code for subflooring, without a second layer, 23/32” and 1-1/8” thick does. For applications where ceramic tile is to be installed, the 1-1/8” thick sheets provide the stability necessary, without a second layer of subflooring.

These 4’ x 8’ sheets are cut tongue and groove for positive location and connection, leaving no gaps between sheets. The face surface is sanded, ensuring a smooth surface for any type of flooring applied. While important for any sort of flooring, this is especially important for ceramic tile or vinyl flooring.

Plytanium Sheathing

Roof and wall sheathing in the Plytanium line are not sanded, as there is no need for it. Sheathing is always covered with other materials, which do not require a smooth surface, unlike flooring. However, as an exterior-grade product, Plytanium sheathing provides weather protection, with lower risk of edge swelling than OSB and other products.

Plytanium sheathing is available in 3/8”, 15/32”, 19/32” and 23/32” thicknesses, in 4’ x 8’ sheets. The 15/32” and 19/32” are most commonly used for exterior wall and roof sheathing, while 3/8” is only used in non-structural applications.

Plytanium Siding

There is also T-101 siding in the Plytanium line. Finished with a rough-sawn texture, this is an excellent siding choice for low-cost construction, where a rustic appearance is desired. Being made of softwood plywood, it is considerably stronger than T-101 panels made in other ways, as well as being much less prone to delamination and edge swelling.

Plytanium Siding is made with a shiplap edge, allowing for a seamless installation, with no gaps that water can seep through. Nevertheless, it should be installed over a house wrap to meet building code. Panels are available in 11/32”, 15/32” and 19/32” thicknesses.

Plytanium Sanded Panels

Plytanium also comes in sanded panels for furniture and a variety of other projects where plywood is an appropriate material. Being pre-sanded provides an attractive, high-quality surface, which can be painted, stained or torched, depending on the application. Unlike other softwood plywood, Plytanium sanded panels provide a smooth, defect-free surface for these projects.

These sanded panels can also be used in home construction applications where the plywood is left exposed, such as soffits, built-in shelving and painted cabinets. It is available in 1/4”, 11/32”, 15/32”, 19/32” and 23/32” thicknesses.

Cutting Plytanium

As with any other plywood product, care should be taken when cutting Plytanium, especially when cutting across the face grain. While this is not much of an issue in some applications, such as siding, splintering can be a major issue with some projects, especially where the plywood will be the visible surface.

Always use a sharp blade when crosscutting, preferably one with a high tooth count. Carbide tipped blades will remain sharp longer, helping to provide a clean cut, with minimal tear-out. Because the carbide tips are wider than the body of the blade, there is less friction to cause tear-out or burning when cutting.

Even so, it’s a good idea to cover the cut line with masking tape, before making the cut. That will hold the wood fibers in the face veneer together, preventing splintering. The tape can then be removed, after cutting, leaving a clean, splinter-free edge.
