Product Description

18mm shuttering plywood is a specialised type of plywood that is characterised by its incredible strength and structural stability. Most commonly used to create temporary walls and barriers, as well as to form moulds for pouring concrete, 18mm shuttering plywood gives concrete something solid to set onto. 

Although this type of plywood is structurally stable, please note there may be surface defects present such as knots, discolouration, or splits. 

These aesthetic defects have no effect on its structural performance however; the sheets' WBP Grading endows them with good weather-resistant capabilities, ensuring they hold up well no matter the forecast. To assist in mitigating our environmental footprint, all of our formwork plywood comes with an FSC or PEFC accreditation.


18mm Shuttering Ply Applications

18mm sheathing plywood can be used for general-purpose building applications where load-bearing ability and extreme strength are required.


This durable sheathing plywood is purposed to take the weight and stress of concrete being poured, as well as vibrations.


Shuttering plywood is a lower-cost option for boarding up or constructing formwork for poured concrete. It features low-quality face veneers with knots and flaws and may feature voids within its core.

Shuttering ply can be considered for the following applications:

  • General structural use and general construction
  • Renovation work
  • Hoarding
  • Shuttering
  • Packaging
  • Structural and non-structural building work
  • Provides a solid wall/ temporary structure while concrete sets
  • Suitable for interior applications


When used outside, the panel should be treated with a suitable wood treatment/sealant to ensure that all edges are properly sealed.

18mm Shuttering Plywood C+/C Composition

18mm shuttering Plywood is an extremely high-strength board that sees multiple layers of softwood plywood glued together. Its many layers endow the sheets with exceptional strength, making them great for load-bearing purposes.

Though this Plywood isn't always the most pleasing to the eye (because of potential knots from the manufacturing process), it is still extremely sturdy and useful for construction projects that don't require an aesthetic finish.

18mm Softwood Plywood

Softwood plywood is generally constructed of spruce-pine-fir (SPF), redwood, or Douglas fir and pine.

It is most commonly utilised for basic building, roofing, and concrete formwork where its structural value takes precedence over its aesthetic appearance.
