Bendy ply I assume they bend one direction and not the other. It’s bendable plywood used to make pillars or other shapes like that.

I believe that they are very strong. They would usually be covered with veneers of formica type products.

OK let me ask a different way. I assume that they bend with the grain but not across grain. Meaning you can’t bend them at 90 degrees from the first bend. I guess they coould be used as regulat plywood but they don’t have any real strengh unless they are formed into a curve.

They probably are expensive. At least more so than regular plywood.
