Product Description

If you're looking for plywood that can stand up to the elements, get your hands on 12mm Marine Plywood. There's a reason why this robust structural sheet is the most popular choice for boatbuilding - it's simply the best type of plywood for resisting water damage. At its core (which is highly moisture-resistant, might we add), Marine Plywood is a premium load-bearing sheet material that is designed to stand strong in the face of harsh weather conditions. So-called because of its use as a popular ship-building product, Marine Plywood is also suitable for a wide range of construction applications where strength and stability are key such as flooring, roofing and wall applications. Unlike regular plywood, Marine Plywood sheets are made with waterproof glue and are much less likely to swell or delaminate when exposed to moisture.


12mm Marine Grade Plywood Applications


Marine Plywood 12mm delivers excellent results in a wide range of interior applications and exterior applications such as flooring, roofing, wall and external joinery. Thanks to its highly moisture-resistant core, this strong and versatile panel is built to last in damp conditions, meaning it is fit for structural use in a properly protected specification without compromising the performance of the overall system.

This exceptional product conforms to BS1088 (the British standard specification for Marine Plywood) which assures that it is manufactured from durable Meranti hardwood veneers. This stamp of approval ensures that the product will perform well in almost any environment.

However, it can also be used in the following applications:

  • Shopfitting
  • Storage boxes
  • Bathrooms
  • Sheds
  • Walkways
  • Kitchens
  • Patios
  • Indoor vehicle storage areas
  • Roof supports
  • Temporary structures 
  • Cold frames


If used for an aesthetic application such as shelving, we suggest sanding and adding a layer of varnish to enhance its overall appearance.


12mm Marine Plywood 2440mm x 1220mm Key Features:

Offering many benefits as both an interior and exterior plywood board, 12mm Marine Grade Plywood utilises only highly durable species of timber to resist decaying in water-based applications. This structural makeup and moisture resistance is what makes Marine Plywood so loved by boat building industries and marine insurers, as it boasts unrivalled weatherproof quality and performance in wet conditions over extended periods. Whilst naturally resistant to moisture, you can easily increase service life of Marine Plywood by sealing both the edges and faces of the sheets.

Let's take a look at the specs below:

  • Moisture resistant - retains its integrity when in contact with water 
  • Suitable for flooring, roofing and wall applications
  • Holds laminate, paint and polish well
  • Pliable design - can bend without cracking or comprising structural integrity
  • Offers superior impact resistance
  • Lack of voids and holes makes the product more structurally sound 


Marine Plywood is made from solid veneer wood, meaning the finished surface gives a wooden appearance. Therefore, images may vary slightly from delivered products due to the natural variation in colour and grain. 


12mm Marine Grade Plywood Size

Marine Plywood 12mm comes in a 2440mm x 1220mm x 12mm sheet, giving a square metre size of roughly 2.98m2. 


12mm Marine Grade Plywood Manufacturing Process

Where standard plywood sheets are generally made up of layers of softwood and hardwood, Marine Ply is manufactured in a process called cross-graining (where each adjacent layer is rotated by up to 90 degrees) using many layers of water-resistant tropical hardwood that are bonded together with waterproof glue. This process prevents warping and ensures ultimate strength and stability. 

Unlike standard plywood, Marine Plywood is free of air pockets and core voids, reducing the likelihood of water getting trapped between the layers. If you were to slice through a sheet of regular plywood, you'd be able to spot holes and voids within the layers. In avoiding these holes, Marine Plywood boasts greater structural integrity and rot-resistant qualities, making it suitable for demanding requirements where the board is likely to be exposed to the elements. 

Both the quality and lay-up of the sheet's veneers render Marine Plywood an extremely robust and resilient product.


How To Cut Marine Plywood 

Despite its strength, cutting Marine Plywood is anything but difficult. Simply cut it to size with a jigsaw and cut along the grain lines to achieve a smoother cut.
