If you're looking for a sturdy, reliable and effective material for your construction needs, look no further than 25mm Structural Hardwood Plywood Sheet. Comprising multiple layers of thin veneer, 25mm Structural Hardwood Plywood really packs a punch when it comes to strength and durability. Unlike regular plywood, which is made from softwoods like pine or fir, hardwood plywood is much more resistant to wear and tear. This makes it the perfect choice for construction projects that require a high degree of stability, such as floors, walls and ceilings.
Not only are they strong but they also boast a smooth sanded surface which can be painted or varnished, promising decorative freedom and professional results every time. What’s more, they are also moisture-resistant (conforming to the following standards EN636-2, EN314-2) making them an ideal choice for use in humid environments.
All of our plywoods are FSC/PEFC chain of custody certified.
25mm Hardwood Plywood Applications
As is the case with all load-bearing materials, strength is key. The veneer layers used to make Structural Hardwood Plywood are typically made from hardwood (as the name would suggest), such as birch, fir or eucalyptus, giving the plywood the upperhand in strength and durability over softwood plywood. The sheets provide consistent strength and stability to both interior and exterior applications (such as external wall panels and claddings, as long as all edges are sealed).
If you are looking for an exterior grade plywood sheet, our Marine Plywood is the ultimate hardwood external grade in terms of strength and weatherproofing. For further information regarding all of our sheet material and timber plywood products click here, where you can find sheets available in thickness 5.5mm up to 25mm and sheet sizes up to 2440mm x 1220mm (8' x 4'). Alternatively, you can contact our helpful team who offer excellent service and support.
We recommend using Structural Hardwood Plywood in the following applications:
- Bath panelling
- Packing cases
- Storage boxes
- Trailer linings
- Interior vehicle building
- General joinery
Note that if you are using the sheets for furniture making, plywood absorbs more paint than other wood products.
18 mm Plywood Key Benefits
Whilst non-structural plywood is generally good-quality, it does not offer an inch of what structural plywood does in the way of structural use. There are many reasons why hardwood structural plywood is such a popular choice. Firstly, it is extremely strong and durable. It can withstand a lot of wear and tear, making it ideal for high-traffic areas. As well as offering strength and resilience, these Hardwood Plywood sheets offer a host of other long-lasting benefits. Let's explore some of the many benefits below:
- Versatility – 12mm plywood can be used in many general purpose applications, such as internal and external joinery (providing it is properly sealed). The sheets are also easy to work with (with an approximate weight of 50kg) and can be cut, drilled and shaped to suit your needs.
- Strength - Thanks to the cross-graining process by which it is manufactured, it has a high strength-to-weight ratio. It also provides a high level of impact resistance.
- Complies to EN314-2 Class 2 glue
- Service class EN636 Class 2
- CE marked
- Durability - Designed to resist warping and bending
- Sustainable- Plywood is an authentic and natural product made from responsibly 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 sleek finish when making furniture such as doors and cabinets.
25mm Structural Hardwood Plywood Manufacturing Process
Hardwood Plywood is an engineered wood made by slicing wood into thin layers and heat-bonding them together with resin adhesive in a process called cross graining. So, what exactly is cross graining? Essentially, it is the practice of orienting the grain of each plywood layer at right angles to the one below it, with each adjacent layer rotated by up to 90 degrees. This creates a criss-cross pattern that gives the material added strength and rigidity.
There are a few key reasons why cross graining is so essential in the creation process of plywood:
- It helps to distribute weight more evenly across the surface of the material. This is because each layer is supporting the one above it, rather than all the weight being concentrated in one area.
- Cross graining makes plywood prevents warping and deformation over a long duration of time. When all the grain is going in the same direction, it is easier for the plywood to bow or twist out of shape. But when the grain is alternating, it is much more difficult for the plywood to deform.
- Cross graining improves strength. This means that it can withstand more force without breaking or sagging.
WBP Plywood 25mm
The term "WBP Plywood" (which stands for "Weather and Boil Proof") refers to the type of glue that is used to bond the layers of wood veneer together.
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. All of our general-use hardwood birch plywood sheet materials (made from birch veneers) meet level 2 under these classifications, which means that they are suitable for use in humid conditions, and can be used outside if properly sealed.
How to Cut 25mm Plywood
A simple circular saw, or skill saw can be used to get through 25mm plywood. With these methods, you may find it troublesome to make long and straight cuts without the guidance of a jig or a guide to keep the saw linear. However, to remedy this, you can simply clamp a board along the length of the plywood to use as guidance.
