Superior Strength Exterior Plywood

Pine structural plywood and Hardwood structural plywood are both manufactured to AS/NZ2269 using a phenolic “A” bond resin bonding the individual timber veneers.

This exterior grade plywood has known and consistent structural performance and the design properties are published in the Timber Structures Code AS1720.1 & is certified by the Engineered Wood Products Association of Australasia (EWPAA) as compliant for Structural Plywood.

Workability

Structural plywood can be worked with conventional wood working machinery and cut, drilled, bored, routed, planed and sanded with ease. It can be nailed or screwed to within 10mm of the edge without fear of splitting or other damage.

Preservative treatment

Preservative treatment against fungal and termite attack is recommended when structural plywood is to be continually exposed to the weather.

All exposed structural plywood should be sealed to prevent checking or crazing.
