Marine Grades

The highest quality Marine Plywood in the world is manufactured in Europe to the BS1088 grading standard.  The European mills hire Lloyd's of London to monitor and test their quality and certify their products to be on specification.  Some Asian mills claim their products are built to the "1088" specification, however none are Lloyd's Certified and few, if any, reach the quality of the better European plants.   

It is the standard that specifies the quality of the best marine plywood in the world.  Reading the entire BS1088 spec. is a long and tedious process.  So we have condensed our list to the main headings. 

  • a) Balanced construction to avoid distortion in service. (4.2.3)
  • b) Minimum face veneer thickness on all panels and no less than 1mm after sanding on panels thicker than 3.8mm (4.2.4.3)
  • c) Durability of species and glue type within standard or lightweight designations. (4.3+5.5)
  • d) Dimensional tolerances (5.1)
  • f) Moisture content (5.2)
  • g) Allowable defects (5.4+4.1)
  • h) Glue Bond Quality (5.6)
  • I) Marking and Documentation (6.1+6.2)

The above specifications are abbreviated and listed for convenience only and are not to be construed as the grade in it's entirety.

 

Marine plywood's are not required to be built of species that are naturally durable.  It is  recommended that the standard trade practice of applying  epoxy sealers, paint or preservative compounds to both face surfaces and edges in order to prevent moisture ingress is addressed during construction.
