Check out our new range of Q-mark Plywood:
We stock Far Eastern and Chinese Blockboard. One of the advantages that Blockboard
offers when compared to Plywood and MDF is its relative lightness. The density of the boards is largely determined by the
species of timber used for the core blocks. Customers should note that Blockboard is suitable for interior use only.
We stock both Hardwood (Amescla) Plywood and Softwood (Pine) Plywood from Brazilian
manufacturers in a full range of sizes and thicknesses. We also hold stocks of Medium Density Overlaid (MDO) panels which are suitable for concrete formwork.
Chinese Hardwood Faced Panels offer a good quality face veneer and the poplar core makes the plywood lighter than similar panels constructed of other hardwoods. The surface is good for painting and veneering. We can also offer “hardwood throughout” panels from China for applications requiring a stronger product.
Chipboard is generally available in Standard Grade, which is normally about 650kg/m3 density, and Flooring Grade which is about 720kg/ m3 density.
Standard grade is widely used in furniture manufacturing and general joinery, particularly
where the boards will be “hidden” under
a veneer or laminate.
Flooring grade is produced as a square-edged
panel but is also available with a tongued and
grooved profile. Flooring Grades are classed
as either P4 (for interior use only) or P5 which can be used where moisture resistance is required
e.g. bathroom floors.
From temporary hoardings to top quality flooring and concrete formwork, there is a panel suitable for the purpose. Obviously the cheaper grades of panel are unsuitable for demanding
applications and a top quality panel would generally be too expensive to use for general purpose work. We stock a range of panels which will cover most requirements, including structural work where a CE2+ panel
has been specified.
Far Eastern Plywood
Far Eastern plywood products are generally made from tropical hardwood and are manufactured in Malaysia or Indonesia. International
Plywood stocks top quality plywood from well known manufacturers based in this region. A full range of sizes and grades including CE2+ panels are always available from stock. We are also able to supply to special
order, cut-to-size, pre-painted and flame retardant panels.
We stock a full range of Standard, Perforated,
White Painted and Oil Tempered grades. Hardboard is commonly used as a floor covering
but can also be used in a wide range of panelling and cladding applications. Easy to cut and fix, it can also be painted.
International Plywood hold stocks of Ivory Faced Insulation Boards and a range of Sundeala
Boards. These are graded A for exterior use and either K or Class 1 FR for interior use. Sundeala is particularly useful for notice boards, office partition screens and similar applications.
Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF)
MDF offers smooth surfaces and a uniformly dense core, which make it suitable for cutting, machining and moulding. It is also widely used in furniture manufacture and can be veneered,
laminated, or painted to offer a range of finishes. Standard MDF is unsuitable in
applications where panels are to be exposed to moisture. In these cases MR grade MDF must be used. International Plywood stocks a full range of sizes in both grades to ensure that the
right product is available for our customers at all times.
Orientated Strand Board is an exterior grade panel which has many packaging and sheathing
uses where a solid faced panel is required. The product is made to very strict manufacturing
tolerances, is easy to cut and can be painted to give a durable finish. International Plywood stock OSB 2 (Standard Grade) and OSB 3 (Conditioned Grade) which offers more stability in moist conditions.
Russian Birch Plywood
Available in a range of sheet sizes, thicknesses and veneer grades, Russian Birch Plywood is widely used in joinery and packaging applications.
The multi laminated construction and consistent quality of the veneers ensure the strength and stability of the panels.
International Plywood holds stocks of French
Okoume Plywood which is widely used in
high quality joinery as is Flexible Plywood
which is available in long grain and cross grain.
A full range of film/MDO faced panels can also
be supplied which are aimed at the concrete
formwork and vehicle body building markets but which are also suitable for other applications where a smooth faced panel is required.
