Exterior Plywood


Exterior Birch Plywood maintains its performance characteristics under conditions of high humidity and does not deform or soak. It can be used in both interior and exterior finish.The hard surface of the exterior plywood offers durability and wear resistance. It is a water resistant plywood and hence is utilized for the internal constructions in the ship. The exterior plywood is also used as a basis for the flexible roofing, floors and ceilings leveling, etc.

Key benefits

  • Durable and wear resistant
  • Hard surface
  • Resistance to temperature variation: through a range of -40°C to +50°C (-40°F to +122°F)
  • Comes in a variety of thicknesses and sizes
