18mm FSC Plywood : WBP Hardwood Plywood - 2440x1220mm Panel

Malayan Plywood - General Description :
The plywood surface veneers are of Red or Cream Hardwood.
The board is normally manufactured with an odd number of plies, each ply being oriented at 90º to the adjacent one, to create a balanced construc­tion.­ The plywood face and reverse veneers run in the direction of the length of the sheet : long-grain plywood.

- Our supplier currently has stock of this 18mm Board; we would have to order it in - 04­/11/2019 -
- For larger quantities direct delivery to site is possible - POA;

Thickness tolerances of plywood - differences are allowed from the nominal thickness of the board after sanding.
In the case of 18mm plywood, this is from 17mm to 19mm, as a mean thickness.
Length and width dimensions of the plywood are stated within ± 1mm tolerance.

Adhesives used in the plywood manufacture are Phenol (WBP type) for the core veneers, and Melamine Formaldehyde (Type 1 Exterior) for the face veneers.

Plywood face grading is stated as B/C
- a B plywood face is described as a neatly cut veneer, substan­ti­ally defect free and sanded smooth;
- a C plywood face allows minor defects, so long as they are filled and sanded.
These plywood face-grade descriptions are summarised from BS6566 - (which although not a current standard, has been adopted as a description by several Plywood Mills.)
Long-grain hardwood veneered plywood - many boards have a decorative veneer but would have to be selected if required for this use;

Weight per 8x4 x 3/4" plywood board is appro­ximately 32Kg;

Moisture content of the plywood is appro­ximately 10%;

Plywood Strength Data - CE marked for structural use.

Applications - Furniture, Shopfitting, Exhibition Stands and general construction work. This board has an external glueline WBP (Water & Boil-Proof); WBP bonded plywood generally has a high resistance to humid and wet envi­ron­ments, although the forces of expansion in a saturated timber veneer may cause the veneer to actually split, while the glueline itself is sound; This does not indicate that the Plywood has been manufactured incorrectly - timber is a natural material subject to swelling when it absorbs moisture. Be aware that Poplar does not posses a high resistance to fungal decay in humid conditions. For long service in these conditions, design consi­dera­tions and the appropriate weather-proof finish of the plywood are of the highest importance. The timber (especially end-grain) would need to be coated and maintained to a BS-CP external specifi­cation for any external use. These plywood boards have been CE grade tested for structural uses such as floor decking, roof decking or wall sheathing - We would be able to supply a CE marked standard plywood - poa; For external use a Marine Grade Plywood would be more stable, but this also would be at a higher price - poa;

This ply is more stable and generally will swell, twist or warp less than a softwood core plywood.
