Abstract: Multilayer plywood made from wood veneers with mainly unidirectional grain orientation known as multiplex panels represent a significant group of modern wood-based panels. Application of these panels in modern construction and in other application areas necessitates achieving higher physical and mechanical characteristics of these materials, their consistency during prolonged water impact, humidity, heat, as well as their dimensional stability. The aim of the research presented in this paper is to study the dimensional stability of experimental multiplex plywood reinforced with cotton based prepreg. The cotton prepreg was made form cotton fabric pre-impregnated with alcohol-soluble phenol-formaldehyde resin. The experimental multiplex plywood was made of eleven layers of peeled beech veneers with thickness of 1,85 mm. Alcohol-soluble phenol-formaldehyde resin was used as plywood binder. The orientation of the veneers in the plywood structure is parallel to the longitudinal axis of the panel, with exception of the subsurface layers whose orientation is transverse to the longitudinal axis of the panel. The cotton prepreg reinforcements were inserted in each adhesive layer of plywood. To define the dimensional stability of the panels, laboratory tests on the most important physical properties were performed, as well as on bonding quality through the shear strength test. Tests of water absorption and thickness swelling were performed during prolonged water treatment.
