Twisting and warping of laser plywood (laserply).Whilst we take care to store our plywood and other sheet materials flat, in some cases there will be unavoidable warping or twisting. Read on to find out the best way to look after it.
- If possible store it flat, but not directly on the floor.
- Store it with the concave surface down in sunlight. This will cause the moisture content of the other side to reduce, but keep your eye on it or you may end up with twist in the opposite direction.
- If the laser plywood (laserply) is being used to cut out pieces from the full sheet then securing it before working can help. In the case of laser cutting a strong magnet strategically placed (make sure it is not in the cut path) can help, and for other jobs, securing it firmly to the workbench with clamps could be considered.
