Product Overview

6mm Plywood Hardwood Non-Structural Grade is a durable and versatile sheet material 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 only be used in non-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.

6mm Non-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 and is laid at right angles in a process known as "cross graining". This prevents warping (when the plywood becomes misshaped and difficult to use). The combination of these thin layers improves strength and makes the plywood sheets suitable for a wide range of construction applications.

WBP Plywood 6mm

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 Although many people still refer to this type of plywood as "WBP", this terminology is actually outdated and is no relevant to current statutory building requirements.

This terminology has been superseded by the EN314 and EN636 classifications, which define the bonding quality of the adhesive and the standards to which the plywood will perform.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. However, if the plywood gets wet for a long duration of time it can lead to warping, so it’s important to ensure that it is suitably protected when used outside.

6mm Hardwood Plywood Applications

6mm Hardwood Ply is one of the most widely used sheet materials in the construction industry and offers many benefits. It can be used in a variety of applications, such as furniture, bath panelling, flooring, packing cases, storage boxes, trailer linings, interior vehicle building and general joinery. Note that if using for furniture making, plywood absorbs more paint than other wood products. The solid core provides consistent strength and stability to both interior and exterior applications, although when used in exterior applications it must be sealed correctly with an appropriate preserver. 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. Due to its versatile nature, 6mm plywood sheets are used extensively in both domestic and commercial construction applications.

6mm Hardwood Plywood Benefits

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

Versatility – 6mm 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. It also provides a high level of impact resistance.

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.
