Sorry, I can't say as I am not familiar with your terms.
I guess if you are in Canada and recognize the term, you are familiar with this stuff.
Do you think it could be good for making speakers, by gluing layers together to absorb vibrations?

Building using solid wood
Many thin layers glued together is called plywood.

Check post #41 and search that term. It may well answer your question?

Thanks, yes, going through that thread.
I was thinking of masonite because it was (long ago?) fairly cheap,,,,, and I have been reading about multiple layers. I was thinking about the advantage of its flexibility, and the glue layers absorbing the acoustic energy. It might be less expensive than plywood from a layer /cost perspective. I don't know.... just exploring ideas here.
Thanks.

Technically hardwoods are dicot angiosperm species (roughly the same as deciduous), and softwoods are gymnosperm species. The variation in properties withing each category makes the distinction moot sometimes, but most hardwoods are dense and hard - hardwoods usually have more lignin too and are darker in colour as a result, sometimes very much so - lignin is much harder/stronger than celulose.
