Birch thin plywood for both indoor and outdoor usage

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.
