Below, we share some of our insight in building the world’s best marine plywood.
Premium Materials and Quality Construction
Not all marine plywoods are the same. We use quality plywood as it is rated at a durability of Class-3 or better and suitable for extreme conditions such as marine craft, vehicle bodies and other high end marine applications. When compared to Okoume which is rated “non-durable”, our quality plywood is superior, offering better insulation, strength, face veneer quality and appearance, and workability. Asia Plywood Company understands the end uses of marine plywood and only uses high quality marine plywood panels that are consistently proven to last for years even in the most rigorous conditions.
Our Marine plywood panels are constructed of 100% Phenol Formaldehyde (Class E1) adhesive and available in the following sizes:
4MM, 6MM, 9MM, 12MM, 15MM, 18MM, 22MM and 25MM x 1220MM x 2440MM
Independently Audited and Certified
Asia Plywood Company manufacturers all of its marine plywood according to British Standard 1088 (BS1088) and is independently audited and certified to the Q-Mark standard by Exova BM Trada, assuring the best marine grade plywood for your customers. Our cores are made of continuous sheets with minimal to zero core voids, and faces with no knots. We use fully waterproof (immersion and boiling water tested) WBP phenolic glues and hand grade each panel. Each panel features additional plies giving it strong screw and nail holding properties.
Real World Performance
Our Exterior Grade and Marine Grade wood panels are so well-regarded in the industry, they are used by some of the most reputable yacht builders, including a well-known commercial yacht builder based in Southampton, UK for their largest 125’ flybridge superyacht flagship. Displacing 200,000 kgs, this massive superyacht spared no expense in using the highest quality plywood products for the construction of various structural and cosmetic components sourced from dealers who were supplied with panels from Asia Plywood Company out of Kedah, Malaysia.
