This is a high quality 1.5mm Oak Veneered Okoume core Plywood sheet which is suitable for a wide range of applications and is suitable for laser cutting. Due to it's Okoume core, it is lighter and more flexible than comparable products.
These thinner plywoods are used in specialist applications and tend to have a slightly higher quality feel. The surface of the material is sanded to a smoother finish than that that of most plywoods.
Okoume peels and slices easily and evenly, and this combines with its good acceptance of glue to give it wide use as veneer and being processed into plywood.
Okoume is very soft and has very low density and when processed into plywood it makes the combined plywood layers more flexible and lightweight. When flexed, Okoume core plywoods will flex without cracking and wont lose shape like a veneer can when flexed.
The glue used in the core is Melamine. EN 314 cl. 2 which maintains its integrity in humid conditions and is less influenced by moisture percentage changes.
- As wood is a natural product there is often a bow or crook to plywood, and in some cases a twist. We have measured curvature as much as a 25mm rise between the flat center of the plywood and the corner, therefore if using on a laser cutter these sheets should be strapped/taped to the laser bed before cutting.
- All of our plywoods, bar this one, use EN 314 cl. 1 bonding glue, which is classified as for indoor use. These 1.5mm Oak Veneered Okoume core Plywood sheets use EN 314 cl. 2 bonding glue which makes the plywood more resistant to moisture. Care should be taken when laser cutting as EN 314 cl. 2 is more easily scorched than EN 314 cl. 1.
