Re: Marine Plywood????
- OK, I'm confused. Any reason you can't return the 25 sheets to the
firm you purchased them from? Most suppliers will replace defective
materials without an argument. Also confused by the reference to
"drying". Did you mean you brought them into the space where they'll
be used or machined - in order to acclimatize them? That is something
we frequently do, with lumber, plywood, or even with MDF,
particleboard & melamine. FWIW, the two primary Lloyds spec's for
marine ply are BS1088 & BS6566. They're very similar, with 6566
allowing slightly lesser quality, but not junk by any means. You might
also consider sign-grade MDO.

find the names of the overseas manufacturers (ie shelmarine) and then
ask specifically for those brands when buying.

and due to the cross grain of the ply glue ups will not move with
moisture. The best way to store ply is stacked flat, sheet to sheet,
just like you see it at the lumber yard.
>plywood plant. Put it up to let it air-dry, now it is delaminateing.
