Hoop Pine Marine Plywood:
Marine plywood has long been known as the “Rolls Royce” of plywood, and for good reason. It is a high performing product, suitable when “only the best will do”. Constructed using the highest grade veneers (face and core veneers), it is manufactured from selected species based on density, bending strength, impact resistance and surface finishing characteristics. Marine plywood manufactured to AS/NZS 2272 – 2006 has a permanent Type A phenolic bond.
It is manufactured from selected species based on density, bending strength, impact resistance and surface finishing characteristics. Austral Plywood’s marine plywood is manufactured from plantation Hoop Pine, a designated marine species. None of the marine species are naturally durable and preservative treatment is required in marine plywood used in many marine environments such as boat hulls, pontoons and marina applications. All cut edges should therefore be re-treated in situ. As most preservatives affect resorcinol bonding, advice should be sought from adhesive and preservative manufacturers if gluing of preservative treated plywood is intended. Hoop Pine marine plywood manufactured by Austral Plywood’s possesses a stress grade of F17.
This superior stress grade is attributable to our premium Hoop Pine resource, the efficient utilization of that resource, and a commitment to quality manufacture.
