KoskiPly birch is a strong yet flexible, Finnish aircraft plywood suitable for a multitude of applications from furniture to musical instruments, from saddles to model making, even the most demanding technical applications such as aircraft manufacturing.
KoskiPly birch is flexible, cross-banded thin plywood, made from birch veneers throughout and faced with a joint-free birch veneer. It can be bent to many different shapes making it extremely suitable for applications such as lamps and pieces of furniture which require structural integrity, bending strength and flexibility. Surface is natural, light and smooth which makes it a perfect choice for furniture, fixtures and for other interior design applications demanding a beautiful aesthetic. KoskiPly birch thin plywood’s surface can be left in its natural state to show the beautiful appearance of the Finnish birch veneer or it can be finished with lacquer, wax or stain like any other wood surface.
Aircraft plywood is flexible, light and easy to machine. Our non-toxic KoskiPly birch aircraft plywood can be safely cut with a laser or waterjet. It is safe for people and animals, and it fulfils the requirements according to EN 71-3 safety requirements for toys. KoskiPly is ecological and easy to recycle.
KoskiPly birch thin plywood can be used both indoors and outdoors. The flexibility of aircraft plywood opens up a multitude of possibilities for furniture manufacturing, interior design and boat and aircraft production. Because of its cross-banded composition, birch thin plywood is both durable, and strong making it suitable for sport equipment such as hockey sticks, saddles, canoes, paddles and other technically demanding applications.
KoskiPly birch thin plywood is available coated with other wood veneers including oak, ash and walnut. Hot pressed coating such as painting films can also be applied to the surface. KoskiPly is manufactured using glue films to prevent glue bleeding onto the surface.
Even though KoskiPly birch is called thin plywood, it is available in thicknesses of up to 60mm. The use of a very large number of thin birch veneers results in an unbelievably tough and strong board. This multi-layered aircraft plywood can be used in the manufacture of gun stocks and a variety of other engineering applications.

Koskisen’s sawmill in Järvelä is the first Finnish sawmill to test scrapers made of thin plywood in its chain conveyor for wood chips and sawdust. Chain conveyors at sawmills are usually noisy, but the noise levels can be influenced through the choice of scraper material. The goal for the Järvelä sawmill is to find a durable sawn timber production solution that generates less noise near residential areas. Experiences thus far are promising: Finnish thin plywood has proved a silent material that is competitive in cost when compared with, for example, beech.
L.Stelling GmbH is a timber and plywood wholesaler providing artisans with quality plywood, veneers & timber for e.g. scale models, furnishings, ornaments and jewelry. “Koskisen birch thin plywood has been in our selection for eight years now. From the very beginning I have been very impressed by the high and constant quality of the product”, says the owner Lutz Stelling.
Today’s consumers value durability, quality, sustainable footprint of a product and top-notch product design. The decisions regarding these choices are made on designer’s table: what kind of material enables designer to design a successful product that answers to both producers’ needs and consumers’ motivations?
