Builders Warned Of Substandard Plywood
Product advisories warning against buying or selling substandard, unsafe plywood from Brazil have been sent to U.S. importers and building code and homebuilder associations. The warnings are the result of a motion filed by a coalition of ten U.S. plywood companies against two licensing agencies, TPI and PFS-TECO, who certified the plywood as safe. U.S. tests showed massive failure rates.
