What is Marine Plywood?

What is Marine Plywood ?


Marine plywood is manufactured out of the face and core veneers, with limited defects so it performs better and stronger in humid and wet conditions and deflects delaminating and fungal attack. It is construction in such a way that it can be used in environments where it is exposed to moisture for long periods. Currently tropical producers have become dominant in the marine plywood market. Okoumé which comes from Gabon is now the accepted standard for marine plywood, even though the wood is not very resistant to rot and decay.




Plywood veneers that are manufactured from tropical hardwoods, have very littlecore gap, limiting the chance of trapping water in the plywood and hence providing a solid and stable glue adhesive. It uses an exterior Water and Boil Proof (WBP) glue similar to most exterior plywoods. Marine plywood can be graded as being compliant with all international standars for plywood.

Applications for Marine Plywood

Marine plywood as an application is used in the construction of docks material and boats and boating materials. It is much more costly than standard plywood: the cost for a typical 4-foot by 8-foot 1/2-inch thick board is roughly $75 to $100 U.S. or around $2.5 per square foot, which is about three times as expensive as standard plywood.
