How thick is 12-ply plywood

Plywood (Finnish birch, ceiba, poplar)

Our plywood the Finnish birch, Ceiba or poplar are characterized by their strength. The starting material is wood - a renewable raw material and thus a building material with environmental certification. The properties of plywood are so unique that it cannot be replaced by any other building material. The type and number of wood layers determine the specific strength properties. Plywood is used wherever thin cross-sections are required despite high loads. It has a clear advantage over chipboard in terms of strength, compressive strength and dimensional stability.

Finn. Birch / aircraft plywood

Finnish birch plywood meets the highest requirements. With a weight of approx. 700 kg / m³ it is the heaviest of our plywood. A unique stability is achieved with up to 12 layers. Our plywood is made from Finnish birch Tegofilm-glued and thus protected against moisture.

This plywood is also available with a light-colored, laser-compatible glue.

Ceiba / model making plywood

The reddish one Ceiba plywood With its weight of approx. 350 kg / m³ it is only about half as heavy as Finnish birch. Because of its lightness it is particularly suitable for Ship and airplane model making very popular. In Table tennis bats Ceiba plywood is also often used.

Due to the IF20 gluing, it is only suitable for indoor use with normally low humidity.

Poplar plywood

Poplar plywood is about 350 kg / m³ as heavy as Ceiba plywood. It is, however, much brighter.

For example, poplar plywood is used in the Furniture and caravan construction and as Construction plywood used.

Thanks to the IF20 glue, it is only suitable for indoor use with normally low humidity.
