What are the Advantages of Marine Plywood?

DIY Questions and Answer February 22, 2016 Sonia



Q: What are the advantages of marine plywood?

A: Marine plywood is manufactured from durable veneers and wood plies with minimal defects so it performs longer in humid and wet conditions, without delaminating or succumbing to fungal attack. All marine-grade ply will be free of voids in the core, which are prone to trap water and rot the product from the inside out. It is manufactured using a durable, exterior Water and Boil Proof (WBP) glue that has been subjected to boiling water for more than an hour without delamination of the plies. Marine plywood is also much more expensive than standard plywood, costing two to three times as expensive as standard plywood, depending on grade.
