Plywood marine: what is it?

Plywood marine is the plywood variant which is resistant to moisture and is therefore used for outdoor applications or in humid areas. The sheet is, as with plywood birch, bonded with a waterproof glue. Marine is more resistant to moisture, which makes this variant suitable for outdoor applications. But of course you can also choose the sheet because of its beautiful pink-red colour with coarse flames and the fact that it is easy to work with. Plywood is made up of various veneer layers. These layers are glued crosswise on top of each other. This results in a stable sheet. The sheets have an attractive edge that can be used for visual applications.

Plywood quality A/B

The quality of plywood surface layers is indicated by letter combinations and refers to the visual assessment of plywood wood. There is a letter designation for the visible side (top) and one for the reverse side (bottom). It refers to the quality of the deck veneer, the quality of the gluing, for example, is indicated differently. Read more about all visible qualities hier

This board material has visible side A/B. The top side has the visual quality AB, the underside visual quality BB. A plywood panel with view quality B/BB usually has an acceptable visual quality, but does show some imperfections. The front side (the "A" side) has a smooth surface and is free of large knots, cracks and other imperfections. The surface is as uniform as possible. The reverse side (the "B" side) may have colour variations, small knots, repairs and other irregularities, albeit to a limited extent.

This is the highest classification in terms of the visual quality of plywood. This panel material is good for any project. It is important to note that appearance qualities may vary depending on local standards and specifications. When buying plywood, it is advisable to consult the specific ratings and standards of the manufacturer or supplier to ensure that the wood meets the requirements for the intended application.

All in all, plywood A/B offers a balance between functionality and aesthetics, making it a widely used material for a wide range of applications where visible surfaces play an important role.

Available thicknesses of plywood marine

Plywood can be ordered in different thicknesses. You can easily specify your desired thickness during the ordering process. This way you can be sure that the sheet material meets your requirements: both the size and thickness of the material. The following thicknesses are available: 10 mm, 12 mm, 15 mm en 18 mm.

Machining plywood marine sheets

Plywood marine is a hard sheet material type. It is easy to work with when you have sharp tools. For drilling holes, we recommend a wood drill with centring tip. Pre-drilling is also recommended with this sheet material. This sheet material can discolour prematurely, so always finish it with a (clear) varnish, stain or paint. Use an edge sealer to finish the edges of plywood to prevent the lacquer or stain from being absorbed into the sheet material, which can lead to the veneer layers loosening. Are you going to use marine outside? Then it is important to seal the edges with an edge sealer. To be able to enjoy the project outside for a long time, this sheet material still needs protection against humid weather conditions.

Specific applications of plywood marine

Plywood marine is very suitable for projects such as dormers, facade cladding, doors, tabletops and worktops.
