Plywood Marine Garant plex: what is it?

Plywood marine is the plywood variant which is resistant to moisture and is therefore used for outdoor applications or in humid areas. The sheet is, as with plywood birch, bonded with a waterproof glue. Marine is more resistant to moisture, which makes this variant suitable for outdoor applications. But of course, you can also choose the sheet because of its beautiful pink-red colour with coarse flames and the fact that it is easy to work with. Plywood is made up of various veneer layers. These layers are glued crosswise on top of each other. This results in a stable sheet. The sheets have an attractive edge that can be used for visual applications.

Garant plex

Plywood Marine Garant plex is the durable variant of Marine plywood. The board has been specially developed to preserve the quality of the bonding over the long term. In fact, it is developed to resist moisture and can last 15 years if properly finished.

Visibility quality BB/BB

The quality of plywood surface layers is indicated by letter combinations and refers to the visual assessment of plywood wood. There is a letter designation for the visible side (top) and one for the reverse side (bottom). It refers to the quality of the deck veneer, the quality of the gluing, for example, is indicated differently. Read here more about all view qualities.

This board material has the visible side BB/BB. This means that both top layers have the same visible side. A plywood panel rated BB/BB has generally a better visual quality than panels with lower ratings. The wood usually has a smooth and even surface with minimal imperfections. Colour variations, knots, repairs and other irregularities are rare and kept to a minimum.

Because of its high visual quality, plywood with BB/BB sight grade is often used in applications where aesthetics play an important role. It is used for furniture, cabinets, interior finishing, decorative projects and other applications where the wood surface is visible.

It is important to note that visibility quality may vary depending on local standards and specifications. It is advisable to consult the specific ratings and standards of the manufacturer or supplier when buying plywood to ensure that the wood meets the requirements for the intended application.

In general, plywood with BB/BB visible grade provides a high-quality and aesthetically pleasing surface for visible applications. It combines good visual quality with the inherent strength and durability of plywood.

Machining Plywood Marine Garant plex

Plywood Marine Garant plex is a hard sheet material type. It is easy to work with when you have sharp tools. For drilling holes, we recommend a wood drill with centring tip. Pre-drilling is also recommended with this sheet material. This sheet material can discolour prematurely, so always finish it with a (clear) varnish, stain or paint. Use an edge sealer to finish the edges of plywood to prevent the lacquer or stain from being absorbed into the sheet material, which can lead to the veneer layers loosening. Are you going to use marine outside? Then it is important to seal the edges with an edge sealer. To be able to enjoy the project outside for a long time, this sheet material still needs protection against humid weather conditions.

Specific applications of Plywood Marine Garant plex

Plywood Marine Garant plex is very suitable for projects such as dormers, facade cladding, doors, tabletops and worktops.
