Trojan exemplifies how technology, quality, aesthetics & customer needs blend together to form a product. This has made Trojan a favourite with many reputed builders and architects.

Core Protection Technology

Trojan Core Protection Technology

At Trojan Plywood, we take pride in the care – and quality – we guarantee for our premium product range. This high degree of quality essentially comes from our Trojan Core-Protection Technology honed to near-perfection through a series of three minimal steps best described as: Timber Selection, Glue-Line Treatment and Quad Press technology.

Trojancore protection

Each piece of Trojan Plywood, is manufactured by selecting fully grown species of Hardwood and/ or Gurjan logs. Hardwood and Gurjan by nature, posses great resistance towards borers once fully matured. Fully matured quality Hardwood and Gurjan are sourced to initiate the process of manufacturing plywood.

With Trojan’s latest advance in technology today, each ply sheet goes through pressing at four stages. This has led to much better bonding results at both, core-to-core and face-to-core, levels. Clearly, this “Quad-Press” technology is then the definitive upgrade in Trojan’s evolution which ensures that all premium Trojan brands are borer proof.

The veneers treated with specially formulated resin are then pressed together under set conditions of temperature and pressure. This further ensures deeper penetration of the applied resin within all pores of the ply layers.

Earlier, this branched out process in plywood manufacturing at Trojan involved each sheet of ply going through a double-pressing operation, but with Trojan’s latest advance in technology today, each ply sheet goes through pressing at four stages. This has led to much better bonding results at both, core-to-core and face-to-core, levels. Clearly, this “Quad-Press” technology is then the definitive upgrade in Trojan’s evolution which ensures that all premium Trojan brands are borer and/ or termite proof.

It is, thus, with this rigorous three-tiered treatment that Trojan’s core protection technology is completed to perfection, structurally well-balanced and well-bonded.

Calibration

Calibration of plywood surfaces provides for uniform thickness all across the panel. This is achieved by calibrating it in state-of-the-art, high-end, plywood calibrator machines. The singluar advantage granted by ply boards having uniform thickness is that this quality makes them ideal panel products for use by fully mechanized and automated furniture manufacturing units whose numbers are growing by the day. There is also a general growing public awareness of the benefits of using calibrated plywood.

At Trojan, we realized this advantage quite early on, and, as such, have invested significantly in procuring, installing and commissioning calibrator machinery since 2016-17. Today, we bring out plywood sheets as calibrated for all thicknesses above 6 mm.

Core Composing

The Core Composer – a key component in ensuring Trojan’s successful quest for product quality – is a fully automated machine which uses latest advances in technology for joining core pieces into full sheets. Cutting the edges of each piece of core veneer, it joins them with glued yarns, resulting in full sheets of core of 8×4, 7×4, 6×4 sq.ft. sizes free of gaps and overlaps. Thus, plywood made of this all-composed core is as defect-free as is possible for processed natural products to be.

Of course, great tensile strength has to be coupled with incredible bonding qualities, and so, Trojan’s in-house resin-manufacturing facility also makes the best synthetic adhesives possible – a key quality which the careful designer seeks to ensure in his choice of plywood.

In-House R&D Facility

The Company’s manufacturing facility also maintains a state-of-the-art laboratory and R&D centre wherein product quality standards are regularly monitored and maintained to ensure better overall compliance in quality expectations. Manned by competent and qualified personnel, this department is the nerve centre from which all updates and upgrades with respect to Trojan quality and standards are recommended and processed.
