Birch Plywood

Birch is a hardwood with excellent strength to weight ratios. Its light colouring and smooth appearance also makes it a firm favourite with end users in many industries including furniture manufacturing, shop-fitting, interiors and high-end kitchens. As one of the most stable timber-based products available, it performs well in applications requiring strength and rigidity and is ideal for CNC machining as the core is solid all the way through.

Board construction: 1.4mm thick veneers (a ply) are cross bonded to produce finished boards from 4mm thick (3 plies) to 50mm (35 plies). Finished boards are sanded both sides.
