Marine Plywood

Divya’s Marine Ply withstands the extreme weather conditions such as changes in temperature, humidity and alternate drying / wetting. This plywood is manufactiured with utmost care using the modern technologies.

  • Conforms to IS 710:1976 specification
  • Made from selected hardwood veneers
  • Bonded with WBP grade of Phenol Formaldehyde resin, WBP as Water Bail Proof
  • Treated in a vacuum pressure impregnation plant using specific quality of preservative making it resistant to marine organisms
  • Bonded with a very high pressure and temperature ensuring dimensional stability
  • Ideal for long lasting services in very humid and coastal areas

WBP is a glue standard that was developed in Great Britain and is set down in British Standards Institution standard 1203:1963, "specification for synthetic resin adhesives (phenolic and amino plastic) for plywood". This standard identifies for categories of plywood glue on the basis of durability. WBP is the most durable classification. In descending order of durability, the other glue classes are Boil Resistant (BR), Moisture Resistant (MR), and Interior (INT). According to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, properly formulated WBP plywood is the only plywood recommended for exterior use without reservation.

WBP plywood made with ordinary melamine rather than phenolic resin can maintain lamination in boiling water for between 4 and 8 hours. WBP plywood using ordinary phenolic resin glue can handle boiling water for 1-3 days. It also depends on the grade of plywood used.
