Handling & Application Information


Keruing is a hardwood, with exterior glue-lines, but despite this it is the user’s responsibility to provide a suitable marine coating if the ply is used in exterior conditions (As such, the manufacturer does not supply a guarantee for the product to be used in exterior applications.) Plywood is a natural product that can be affected by changes in weather conditions: moisture and temperature. Increased moisture content or temperature variation may cause internal stresses causing previously flat sheets to bow.

At Plymasters, precautions are taken to minimize this effect. However, once the plywood has left our warehouse we cannot guarantee sheets to remain flat unless fastened. This is particularly important where free standing kitchen/cabinet doors are concerned. Stack on a firm raised base with enough support to prevent sagging. Cover the pallet to protect top and edges. Keruing, being an open grain hardwood, is prone to causing splinters, so gloves are essential when this ply is being used.
