UV Finish Line
Our UV Coating line is one of the largest in North America. We can handle 5’x5′, 4’x8′, 4’x10′ 5’x1′ and 5’x12′ in any thickness from 1/8” up to 2”. Our automated stacking can handle any configuration you require from face to face, back to back, all face up, all face down, or any combination in between. Our process is as many as eleven steps depending on the type of panel being finished. Specialty finishes such as anti-microbial, high wear, dry-erase and other opaque finishes are also options. We can even custom color match to your other wood products. Priming and fill and sand are available if you prefer to apply your own topcoat.
North American Plywood has state-of-the-art CNC Routers. We are able to route panel sizes up-to 144″x144″. Our repeatability tolerances are +/- 0.0008″. We have capabilities of vertical and horizontal drilling, index sawing, and multi head operation. One part or ten thousand parts, NAPC is your one stop source for machined panels.
NAPC employs 2 computerized beam saws with auto loading and scoring for accurate chip free cutting. These machines are built for mass production and can cut as many as 6 sheets of ¾” plywood at a time.

One option NAPC offers is a polyurethane reactive glue (PUR) line for lamination. PUR adhesive allows us to laminate an endless variety of substrates and surfaces, including fiberglass, foam, plywood, veneer, aluminum and HPL . PUR adhesive is made from 100% solids so it will not add moisture to the substrate. This insures that the substrate will not warp or bend as it reaches equilibrium.
NAPC is proud to employ a Barberàn Compact HG laminator for our clients who require a high gloss or ultra matte finish using lamination for their project. Our system incorporates a Wandres panel brush for an immaculate surface finish. This option is a perfect fit for our DesignPly® panels.
Our automated edge bander can process hundreds of feet per hour up to 1 3/4″ material in a variety of lengths. We can source and match edgebanding from multiple sources to complete your project.
Our edge coater applies a thin layer of UV coating onto the edge and then cures it to fully seal the panel. We can process hundreds of feet per day and give your panels a beautiful, finished edge.
