MARINE PLY

Panel & Plywood

Marine Ply (BS1088)

Utilising high quality hardwood veneers, the Samling marine plywood is a superior plywood panel with negligible splits or knots produced in accordance with the international standard BS 1088.

Manufactured using an A-grade sanded face on both sides of the panel, Samling BS1088 marine ply is an ideal choice where surface decoration or appearance is a primary consideration.

BS 1088 marine plywood is produced with an A bond/ WBP glue line and untreated tropical hardwood veneers.

Whilst the A/WBP bond performs better in humid and wet conditions and resists delaminating, if you intend to use the product externally or in applications exposed to prolonged moisture, it is recommended the panel is treated and sealed against fungal and termite attack with a recognised H3 treatment and finished with a paint or water repellent to minimise surface checking.

No marine species are naturally durable in water and preservative treatment of marine plywood used in exposed marine environments is a necessity.

Marine Ply (AS/NZS 2272-2006)

Manufactured using high quality plantation hoop pine veneers and a type A Phenolic bond, hoop pine plywood is well suited to marine applications based on its density, bending strength, impact resistance and surface finishing characteristics.

Utilising high grade hoop pine veneers both on the faces plus the core layers and certified to AS/NZS 2272-2006, hoop pine plywood is ideal for use in the hulls of boats, pontoons and other marine applications.

Based on its superior visual properties, hoop marine ply when finished in a high quality clear polyurethane finish is also a very desirable product in a range of internal decorative applications such as ceiling linings, alfrescos etc. (Please refer to manufacturers guidelines on finishing download here)

Please note that no marine species are naturally durable in water and preservative treatment of marine plywood used in exposed marine environments is a necessity.

Hoop marine plywood is typically not suitable for fully exposed applications (ie wall cladding) based on its propensity to check on the surface and manufacturer’s recommendation to not use oil based finishes.
