Okoumé Marine plywood is graded as being compliant with BS-1088, which is a British Standard for marine plywood. Our Marine Okoume plywood has a Lloyd’s of London stamp that certifies it to be BS 1088.
BS-1088 grading requires the same species throughout (face, back, and core), defect-free A Grade Face veneer with no repairs. Back veneer is to have no more than two repairs. Both Face and Back Veneer are a minimum of 1mm thick after sanding and core gaps cannot exceed 1mm.
Okoume is a fast growing, plantation grown tropical hardwood. Okoume’s clear, beautifully figured grain has a golden, honey colored hue beneath epoxy and varnish, while its low density provides ultra light weight for hull applications. Okoume is ideal for boat building, soffits, the transpiration industry, joinery work (interior & exterior), cladding, interior fittings and more.
