Types of Birch Plywood Sheets
Here are the different types of birch plywood sheets that we stock at Ply Direct and a little more information about each type to help you select the best choice of plywood panels for your needs:
FSC Birch Plywood BB/BB Quality - Long Grain
Our FSC-certified birch plywood BB/BB Quality Long Grain plywood sheets are suitable for a wide range of applications. You can use this birch plywood for CNC machining, and most building works where natural defects are not important. The BB face grade means that there may be patches and knots on the surface of these plywood sheets.
FSC Birch Plywood S+/BB Quality
As with grade b birch plywood sheets, S quality face grade is also likely to have more natural defects, but fewer of them, which makes it more suitable for clear finishing. S+ grade BB quality face grade has fewer natural defects making it suitable for use with a clear lacquer.
FSC Birch Plywood BB/BB Quality - Cross Grain
Like the long grain construction birch plywood sheets, the cross grain construction is also suitable for a huge range of uses. The standard bb grade means there may be the odd well made patch, but choosing a high-quality birch plywood cut sheet could make it suitable for clear finishing.
Finnish Birch Throughout Plywood - BBX Grade
Finnish Birch Throughout Plywood sheets are a high quality plywood choice and feature birch veneers on both the front and back surface. The veneers provide an attractive finish and make Finnish Birch plywood sheets suitable for a huge variety of furniture products.
Matt White Melamine Faced Birch Plywood
White Melamine Birch Plywood sheets are suitable for CNC machining and frequently used as an alternative to MF MDF and MFC. Melamine faced birch plywood sheets have the advantage over MDF cut as the birch cross grain construction can be worked. This means that melamine faced birch plywood does not require lipping or edges like MF MDF.
Film Faced Plywood Panels
Film faced plywood panels offer many benefits and are a highly durable choice thanks to their sealed finish. Choosing this plywood cut to size provides a convenient choice as it is moisture resistant, and resistant to mould.
Key Features of Birch Plywood
