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.
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.

Marine Plywood is used as a building material in a marine setting, such as ships or docks. Marine Plywood performs well in wet conditions, humidity, or anywhere it will be exposed to prolonged moisture. Unlike most woods, it will resist the bending, warping, or delaminating which can often result from too much moisture. This increases the durability and structural strength of Marine Plywood making it a good choice for marine construction.
Marine Plywood can be used for storage shelving, cabinets, furniture, boat house, playhouses, overlay applications, outdoor signs, boat building, docks and more.
Marine-grade plywood, often called 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 from tropical hardwoods, and will have negligible 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 similar to most exterior plywood.
