Distributors of Austral Plywood, a leading Australian manufacturer of premium grade Hoop Pine Plywood.

Their resources are 100% plantation grown Hoop Pine, carrying a Chain of Custody certification, linked to the Australian Forestry Standard (AFS) with independent certification.

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

When selecting the type of plywood there are two options of glue line as per the above photos, either Exterior “A-Bond” or Interior “C-Bond” (generally price comparative). Multiply is an optional extra where 1.5mm high grade core veneers are utilised that have minimal core gaps that create an aesthetically pleasing edge profile.

When staining or coating Hoop Pine plywood, please ensure that compatible products are used. Water based finishes are recommended for application on Hoop Pine plywood. Austral Plywood has tested and approved stains from Livos Australia as suitable for use with Hoop Pine plywood. Ensuring against other oil based coatings penetrating the face veneers and strongly highlighting the natural figure within the timber, causing it to darken considerably.
