Marine plywood is manufactured from durable face and core veneers, with few defects; so it performs longer in both humid and wet conditions and resists delaminating and fungal attack. Its construction is such that it can be used in environments where it is exposed to moisture for long periods. Each wood veneer will be the same species throughout (Fir, Okoume, and Meranti), and have minimal core gap, limiting the chance of trapping water in the plywood and hence providing a solid and stable glue bond. It uses an exterior Water and Boil Proof (WBP) glue.
