Bamboo is now used in thousands of products from clothing to cutting boards but this "green" material is becoming a favorite of architects and interior designers. Because it is manufactured with a non-formaldehyde glue and is rapidly renewable, Bamboo plywood qualifies for LEED credits MR 6 (Rapid Renewable Materials) and EQ 4 (Low or No Added Urea Formaldehyde). From kitchen cabinetry to furniture to wall panels, bamboo plywood is environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing.
Bamboo plywood comes in several forms depending on the manufacturing process. Vertical grain bamboo plywood is made from solid bamboo strips laid on edge and laminated together producing a narrow grain look. Horizontal grain bamboo plywood is manufactured with the wider faces laminated together to form the surface. This method of production shows the "knuckles" characteristic in a bamboo stalk.
Bamboo Plywood comes in vertical and horizontal grain with either a natural or carbonized color. Natural bamboo plywood -- just as the name indicates -- is very light and carries its natural color. Carbonized bamboo gets its color from a steam pressure treatment that actually caramelizes the natural sugars, resulting in a honey-wheat or amber color.
