Frequently Asked Questions
Marine plywood is typically attributed to being a higher grade of wood, which makes it both stronger and more durable. This type of plywood features no voids or defects that leads to it lasting longer in outdoor conditions and environments where it may be exposed to water.
Contrary to what you’d expect, marine plywood is not in itself waterproof but rather a quality plywood made with waterproof glue.
The main difference between the two is that marine plywood is the stronger, more durable form of plywood. Thicker than regular plywood, it features water resistant glue and is free of gaps both between and within the ply itself.
Regular plywood is weaker since it can often feature the voids within the wood that make it structurally weaker. You’re therefore able to sometimes use a thinner sheet of marine plywood that will have the strength of a thicker, regular sheet of plywood. Both can be cut into plywood panels and used for different purposes and projects depending on your need and budget.
The standard size of plywood in Australia is 2440mm by 1220mm. These tedious, specific measurements are due to the standard size of plywood in the United States being 4 by 8 feet, which leads to conversions being rounded up or down to suit the metric system.
Plywood panels made in Australia come as a 2400 X 1200mm panel in a variety of thicknesses which vary between manufacturers and brands that you can browse on our products page.
The best grade plywood is referred to as ‘A-grade’.
Plywood sheets are separated into four grades: A, B, C and D. Each sheet of ply contains two grades, for example AB or BC, with the first letter of the grade being the face veneer and the second being relevant to the back veneer.
A-grade plywood features sheets without flaws and is the best grade plywood available, perfect for wall lining designs using our architectural products.
BC grade plywood features a B-grade face and a C-grade back.
The inner plies are the same grade as the back, C. This is a strong grade of plywood intended for use as an exterior building product, generally in environments where the plywood is exposed to the elements.
The B-grade face has few visible defects while the C grade reverse-side can be made to face backwards so it’s non-visible and kept out of sight.
Structural CD plywood is designed for use in structural building projects, subject to load bearing requirements.
What makes plywood ‘structural’ is the type of A-bond glue that’s used when the boards are manufactured and that it is made in accordance with strict standards to comply with AS2269 and AS6669.
The C-grade face isn’t intended to be aesthetically pleasing and has visible defects while the D-grade reverse side is likewise not meant to be decorative either, this type of plywood is created for use in structural projects where appearance is not a factor.
