Plywood Poplar primed Duraprime: wat is dat?

Plywood consists of several layers of wood veneer. These layers are glued together crosswise, making the board very strong and barely warpable. These are therefore directly the advantages of plywood compared to solid wood, which is why it is often used in constructions. Due to the layers, the end edges of plywood are beautiful to look at and are often kept in sight. Plywood is made from solid wood, it therefore has properties that solid wood can also have. Long boards may therefore have a slight curvature and there may be colour differences between individual boards.


Poplar wood is a widely used wood species known for its lightness, soft texture and easy machinability. Poplar wood has specific characteristics both technically and visually.

Technical structure: Poplar wood belongs to the hardwood category, although it is relatively soft compared to other hardwoods. The wood has medium to low density, which means it is lightweight. This makes it easy to handle and work with both hand tools and machine operations.

The wood has a fine grain and an even texture. The fibres of poplar wood are straight and evenly distributed. It has a relatively low content of natural oils and resins, making it easy to glue, nail and screw. It also finishes well with stain, paint and varnish.

It is important to note that poplar wood is not naturally very durable and can be prone to fungal and insect attack. To improve durability, the wood can be treated with suitable wood preservatives.

Primed top layer

Plywood Poplar primed Duraprime, the name says it all, is finished with a primer layer. Board material with a primed top layer offers immediate time savings and an improved finish, as the material is already pre-treated. Moreover, it is cost-saving. It is a practical and efficient choice when you want to finish your project quickly. However, bear in mind that the edges are not finished and the primer layer still needs to be sanded.

In principle, board material with a primer coating can be painted immediately. It is suitable for all paints: acrylic (water-based) and alkyd (turpentine-based). Do you want to enjoy your paintwork for longer or will the surface be used intensively? Then first apply a primer layer before applying the final coat.

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.


The panel is specially developed and protected to preserve the quality of both the wood and the bonding over the long term. An innovative treatment makes the panel exceptionally durable, even after sanding or machining. This panel can withstand moisture and can last 15 years if properly finished.

Edit Plywood Poplar primed Duraprime

Plywood Poplar primed Duraprime is a relatively soft sheet material type within the plywood family. It is easy to work with both hand tools and machine tools. Make sure you have sharp tools to minimise splintering. For drilling holes, we recommend a wood drill with a centring point. Pre-drilling is recommended, but not necessary.

Because of its light colour and neutral appearance, poplar wood is often used for painting and veneering, accepting paint or veneer finishes well. This board material can discolour over time, so finish it with a (clear) lacquer, stain or paint. This way, you accentuate the natural beauty of the wood. Use an edge sealer to finish the edges of plywood, this will prevent the lacquer or stain from soaking into the plywood, which can lead to the veneer layers coming loose.
