WELDTEX, COMBED or STRIATED PLYWOOD SURVEY

Over the years we have had a number of inquires regarding a very unique plywood that was used in the 1950's onward.  It was known by a number of different names:

Weldtex, Combed or Striated Plywood.  We think it was manufactured by U.S. Plywood but is no longer available.

We are seriously considering trying to produce this unique plywood, but there are a number of hurdles we must first face.  In order to accomplish this we need to know more about this material, how it was used, and your unique application.

If you would like to enter this discussion you can do this one of two ways.  You can email us at jeff@eichlersiding.com  and answer as many of the following questions as possible. Or we are also starting a discussion on this topic on our Facebook Page make sure you go to the discussion page.

Survey Questions:

1. Is your weldtex interior or exterior?

2. How thick are the panels?

3. What size are they? We understand some were full 4x8 sheets, and some were much smaller, like 16"x16" panels, or even other sizes.

4. If we could provide this material how much of it would you need to complete your project?

5. Would you paint or stain this material?

6. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being very important) how important is it to you to be able to purchase this material?
 

Thanks for any information you can provide for us to aid our pursuit of this very unique plywood pattern.
