Pink Marine Ply BS1088

Pink Marine Plywood BS1088

Pacific Maple, Red Meranti, Luan, Philippines Mahogany, Luaun.

This plywood used to be called Pacific Maple Marine Ply. That is another name for Meranti or the scientific name is Shorea sp. There are about 24 species within the Shorea genus which are called Meranti. Only some of those are red or pink in colour. It is a tropical hardwood, it is considered to be "moderately durable, fairly short grained of moderate density and often has a very attractive colour and grain. . Pacific Maple is also known as Philippines Mahogany, Luan and Luaun. When made into plywood, it is usually significantly lighter than Hoop Pine and sometimes almost as light as Gaboon. This varies according to exactly which subspecies of Shorea was used for the veneers in the marine plywood.

Due to over logging, the supplies of legal Shorea sp logs have become very limited. Very little is available from the Philippines, Indonesia, PNG or Malaysia. What we are selling comes from Indonesia. Our importer assures us that it is they only buy from sources which can satisfy them that the logs are legally obtained.

Good quality imported marine plywood is often difficult to obtain, how-ever this Red Meranti plywood from Indonesia seems to be quite good in quality. We remeber the fabulous Wyang Pacific Maple which spolit us all, happily, this plywood seems to be approaching that standard.  The Dragon brand has been applied to the quality plywood from the PT. Sumber Mas Indah company, a family run plywood mill. Until now, most of its marine plywood output has gone to Japan, the United States, Mexico, Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan and Europe.

We can ship plywood to anywhere in Australia, how-ever we STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you also buy 2 of the 3mm MDF Sheets to protect your plywood from damage whilst in transit. If your order weighs more than 30kg, please give some thought as to how it is going to be unloaded from the delivery truck.


Here is some information about glue bond quality and how to check it.
