What's the difference between RTD and CDX plywood for sheathing (walls and

be covered by house wrap.
What is "APA"?

I'm an engineer (haven't had much coffee yet this morning) but your answer
flew over my head. Don't dazzle us with big stories. Is the glue better? Is
one for exterior use while the other isn't? Is it prettier? Why would I Want
to spend twice as much for one?

Now reduce this "oh, by the way" to 20 words or less.

I physically loaded both onto a cart the other day. The RDT $13 was a little
uglier, flakier, than the CDX, $18 which was cleaner, harder/stronger, stain
grade even.

RTD is short for "Rated." Rated for what? Well, it should be written
on the panel.

If it says "RTD SHTG", that means it's APA rated for use as sheathing,
and would thus be approptiate for your use on walls and roof.


RTD is not short for "Rated", it is an abbreviation for Resistant Temperature Detector and refers to the manufacturing process for how the plywood was bonded. RTD is the newer and improved version of CDX.
