Austral Hoop Pine Plywood

We are distributors of Austral Plywood, a leading Australian manufacturer.

Their resources are 100% plantation grown Hoop Pine, carrying a Chain of Custody certification, linked to the Australian Forestry Standard (AFS) with independent certification and comes with a 25 year lamination warranty with the A-Bond marine glueline.

Hoop pine is a native Australian specie with a blonde colour and fine texture. Being a designated marine specie, it is suited for the harsh Australian environment when used in the proper application.

* Austral recently changed all sheets to multiply so there has been a change in some thicknesses. We still carry their old version until stock runs out such as 9.5mm compared to the new multiply which is 9mm.

Austral AC plywood has a high-grade face and a lesser grade back giving a consistent and uniform surface exhibiting a warm appearance fit for clear water-based finishing. Exterior Hoop Pine is a designated marine timber species suitable for semi exposed applications, where a high-quality aesthetic finish is required.
