Imported Meranti is an inexpensive utility hardwood plywood. It is used to make templates and mock ups, drawer bottoms and the insides of cabinet boxes where appearance is not important.  It was used a lot in the 1960's for boxes and millwork as a result of its ready availability and its low cost.  It can also be used for veneer core platforms for laying up fancy veneer faces on.

There are actually many species sold as Meranti, some examples are virola, luaun, amescalao and keruing.  It has become kind of a generic name for a decent utility hardwood plywood.

Type 2 signifies interior grade glue.  It is rotary cut.  

It is 2.7mm thick which is just under 1/8".
