MAKING SENSE OF MARINE PLYWOOD CHOICES
by Luke Wolstenholme, of Wolstenholme International
The many options and price points available to fulfill a wide range of marine applications make it important to understand the trade-offs.

Choices can range from the top of the line European Okoume marine in certified or non-certified, to the marine Meranti panels, or domestic Douglas Fir. These options and price points are available to fulfill a wide range of marine applications.

Its well known and often specified in trade journals and magazines such as WoodenBoat magazine and Professional Boatbuilder, that European Okoume marine plywood is the best choice of plywood for boat construction due to the fact that Okoume offers a great amount of durability without adding too much weight.

There is always that trade off with any marine plywood. Durability usually means, high density. For this reason, Okoume, Sapelle, Douglas Fir, and some specific types of Shorea (Red Meranti for example) are most commonly used in boat building. All of these species offer durability without adding excessive weight. These species peel exceptionally well as the trees are typically quite large in diameter -- a key factor in producing both core & face veneer that are free from knots or voids.

Marine plywood such as Hydrotek, produced to European standards, offer more ply’s, and are uniform in specie throughout the panel (Red Meranti). These panels are less expensive than the European Okoume marine plywood, and they offer a greater durability and hardness than Okoume panels, however they are always heavier then Okoume panels, and typically not produced to the same quality standards. All of these panels we are discussing are produced with a Phenolic glue line, which is a waterproof glue.

Sapele marine plywood is not as commonly available in the US market as the cost of a sheet of Sapele is almost double that of Okoume plywood. However, Sapele offers a much harder face veneer than the Okoume plywood, which while durable, is considered soft.

 

BRITISH STANDARD 1088 (BS1088)
OR BRITISH STANDARD 6566 (BS6566)
Boat builders in the United States are requesting more and more that their plywood be made to the British Standard 1088 (BS1088) or British Standard 6566 (BS6566) known to be the toughest standards for plywood manufacturing.

The key point of this British Standard 1088, is that no core gaps greater than 0.3mm are allowed. Other, key points of the standard are the thickness of the face veneers -- they must be at least 1.0mm after sanding. Face thickness is always the most costly part of plywood manufacturing (as the nicest veneers are used for faces), and the BS1088 standard insures that your plywood will have a full thickness face. The British Standard 6566, is not as common as the BS1088 standard, both here and in Europe. However, as the BS6566 standard is still more stringent then the American PS-1-95 standard for marine Fir plywood, some companies do still offer this grade.

 

In addition to BS1088 standard, you will also find that some marine plywood manufacturers offer a “Lloyds” certified BS1088 panel. The Lloyd’s Register Group is a maritime classification society and independent risk management organization providing risk assessment and mitigation services and management systems certification.

 

Historically, as Lloyd’s Register of Shipping, it was a specifically maritime organization. In the late 20th century it diversified into other sectors, including oil & gas, process industries, nuclear and rail. Today, only about one half of imported marine grade Okoume plywood carries the Lloyds certification. Marine plywood mills that are certified by Lloyds, pay a fee in excess of $10,000 to have inspectors from Lloyds visit their manufacturing facility on a regular basis and test current production to ensure that it meets the British Standard 1088.

 

Some mills will produce marine plywood that is Lloyds certified, and some mills will produce a panel that is “made in accordance with” the Lloyds standard. The British Standard 6566 is not currently certified by Lloyds, however, it is still used as a guideline by some marine plywood manufacturers.

 

One thing to note about Okoume plywood is that, as previously mentioned, the marine grade quality is almost exclusively produced in Europe. Within the last five years or so, China has begun to utilize the Okoume logs for face veneers and they are laminated to the Poplar core that’s grown extensively throughout China. The Okoume logs themselves come from Gabon in central Africa. This product may go by the name of “Okoume” plywood, but it’s nothing like the Okoume produced in Europe. Typically, you will find only the face veneer is made from Okoume, and its peeled at thickness’ of 0.3mm or 0.5mm.

 

The type of glue most commonly used in China is interior (Urea) glue and its almost always laminated to a Poplar core. Panels of this quality have in some ways ruined the reputation for Okoume, but this is quite a different product to the marine grade panels we’ve discussed here.

DON DANENBERG LIKES OUR DARK RED MERANTI

 

"...this is the closest I've ever seen to what Chris-Craft used..."

 

”LL Johnson has a new source of the same Shorea Meranti from islands just south of the Philippines...Russ Arrand and I travelled there yesterday to look over this same specie wood from Malaysia. It looks great and we both bought some 6/4 and 8/4. They have more on hand and can get more if the demand is there. I believe that color and grain-wise, this is the closest I've ever seen to what Chris-Craft used, at least pre-war!” -- Don Danenberg>

 

OUR GUARANTEE

Your lumber purchases are fully guaranteed to be properly graded, measured and machined. LLJ does not guarantee products against loss or damage in transit due to circumstances beyond our control.

NOTICE ON LUMBER PRICES

 

Current hardwood demand is well below early to mid 2000 peaks but has shown modest increases through 2010 / 2011. This is due mostly to very large export growth of almost every specie of hardwood lumber. While domestic markets for hardwoods are still slow compared to the peaks of the mid 2000’s, production has also slowed in response and log inventories are also very low as most do not want to be caught with high priced inventories in regularly fluctuating market conditions. With this in mind, it is our goal to communicate accurate, timely information to our customers.
