CDX PlywoodCDX Grade comes from US voluntary plywood Standard PS1-95 for Construction and Industrial Plywood established by APA – The Engineered Wood Association.

"CDX" is not the name of a plywood grade . CDX stands for "C-D Exposure 1 plywood" . C-D means that one side of the plywood is rated "C" grade and the other side is rated "D" grade . The letter "X" means the glue of the plywood is exterior glue . But CDX plywood is not exterior plywood . Because usually the core veneers for CDX plywood are not as good as exterior plywood. CDX plywood is moisture resistant but can not be exposed to water or weather for long time .

CDX plywood is a kind of economical plywood . Usually CDX plywood are sanded but not polished . So the face/back of CDX plywood is rough . Some knots and knot holes exist in the face/back .

As construction and industrial plywood, CDX plywood is usually used as wall sheathing, roofing and so on .

We produce CDX plywood as the following:
Face/back: C-D grade pine or other
Core: poplar, pine or hardwood
Glue: WBP glue
Size: 1220x2440mm (4’x8′)
Thickness: 9mm / 12mm / 15mm / 18mm / 21mm-30mm or 5/16", 3/8", 7/16", 1/2", 9/16", 5/8", 11/16", 3/4", 13/16", 7/8", 15/16", 1"

Thank you for your opinion. Although I only agree with it partly, can you tell me how you arrived at this conclusion? Thanks.

Mason Pan on July 14th, 2010 at 10:21 am #

The density per CBM is about 550kgs. But it depends on the species of core.

Mason Pan on July 17th, 2010 at 1:44 am #

On this question , there are some technical documents which can be found on internet and support my conclusion .

I have been called in to inspect a home under constuction. The builder sheathed the roof, but installed no felt paper or any weather protection. The wood has been exposed for about 6 weeks with lots of rain during that time. Should this wood be replaced? Are there any standards for removing the roof? I have not seen the project. My site inspection is for July 5, 2011. Any suggestions?

Mason Pan on July 3rd, 2011 at 8:30 pm #

I think it should be replaced . CDX plywood can not be put in water for long time . CDX plywood is not standard exterior plywood, it’s C-D Exposure 1 plywood.
Please refer to questions about Performance Rated vs. “CDX” APA Rated Sheathing:
