Features and Benefits

  • ISPM-15 Exempt - Tolko’s PLV is manufactured with glue, heat, or pressure and is therefore exempt from the requirements in ISPM-15.
  • High Strength-to-Weight Ratio – Compared to other composite wood products.
  • Dimensional Stability – Our controlled, APA audited, exacting manufacturing process produces an extremely stable product.
  • Fastener Holding – Consistent density yields improved fastener holding results compared to solid sawn wood. Solid sawn wood has variation which can lead to mixed performance.
  • Consistency – Each piece of Tolko PLV is 100% usable with quality you can count on. This eliminates the need to cull, sort and cut out defects, to maximize recovery and efficiency in your plant.
