What is the ideal material (wood) for flow hood construction?
    #5755816 - 06/16/06 01:55 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

I’ve seen many designs call for different materials. Some suggest plywood or particle board. Plywood seemed preferable, but a lot of what I saw at my hardware store was badly warped. One design suggested ‘red oak’ plywood (if I could even find some).

What is the ideal material for flow hood construction?

Thanks,

In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

Don't use particle board. You need to be able to wash it with alcohol every time you clean up the lab for sterile work. Mine is made from Birch, a hardwood, with half a dozen coats of poly over it, inside and out. If you use plywood, use at least 3/4".

I have to agree with roger, birch (any hardwood plywood) is going to be preferable
to any sort of pine, the veneers are thinner but theres more of them to give the
strength and dimentional stability you want with little to no sanding for finishing

I personaly would never use MDF or particle board for anything that may come in
contact with moisture, in high humidity (normal room) particle board breaks down

it also makes a great looking product
