Product Overview

18mm Plywood Hardwood Structural Grade is a durable and versatile plywood that is suitable for a wide range of building applications. Comprised of multiple layers of thin veneer wood, this strong board is often used in floors, walls and roofs due to its strength and durability. It is compliant with the EN636-2 and EN314-2 bond classes, which supersedes the old "WBP" term often used to characterise this type of plywood. It can be used in structural applications, and is resistant to water and cracking. It comes plain faced but can be painted or varnished to provide an aesthetic finish. All of our plywoods are FSC/PEFC chain of custody certified.

18mm Structural Hardwood Plywood Product Description


Hardwood Plywood is an engineered wood comprised of multiple layers of thin veneer that are bonded together using a resin adhesive. In the manufacturing process, each adjacent layer of wood is rotated up to 90 degrees in a process known as "cross graining". This prevents warping (when the plywood becomes misshaped and difficult to use). The combination of these layers improves strength and makes the plywood sheets suitable for a wide range of construction applications.

WBP Plywood 18mm

Structural Hardwood plywood is sometimes referred to as "WBP Plywood". "WBP" stands for "Weather and Boil Proof", and refers to the type of glue that is used to bond the layers of wood veneer together. Although many people still refer to this type of plywood as "WBP", this terminology is actually outdated and is no relevant to current statutory building requirements.

This terminology has been superseded by the EN314 and EN636 classifications, which define the bonding quality of the adhesive and the standards to which the plywood will perform. Our hardwood plywoods reach Class 2 of these classifications, which mean that they are suitable for use in humid conditions, and can be used outside if properly sealed.

18mm Hardwood Plywood Applications

18mm Hardwood Ply is one of the most widely used sheet materials in the construction industry. It can be used in a variety of applications, such as furniture, panelling, flooring and general joinery. The solid core provides strength and stability to both interior and exterior applications, although when used in exterior applications it must be sealed correctly. If you are looking for an exterior grade plywood sheet, our Marine Plywood is the ultimate in terms of strength and weatherproofing. Due to its versatile nature, 18mm plywood sheets are used extensively in both domestic and commercial construction applications.

18mm Hardwood Plywood Benefits

These good quality Hardwood Plywood sheets offer many benefits. Lets explore some of these below:

Versatility - 18mm plywood can be used in many general purpose applications, such as internal and external joinery (providing it is properly sealed).

Strength - Thanks to the cross graining process by which it is manufactured, it has a high strength to weight ratio and is suitable for structural use.

Environmentally Friendly - Plywood is an authentic and natural product made from sustainably sourced materials that have FSC/PEFC chain of custody certification.

Appearance - Due to its appealing aesthetic appearance and smooth sanded surface, plywood can provide a nice finish when making furniture such as doors and cabinets.

Competitive price and great quality.

Bought 20 plywood sheets and all arrived in excellent condition. Marine plywood was also an option, but more expensive and really pleased with this ply. Will buy more timber from Materials Market
