Hardwood faced plywoods are intended for use in non-structural applications where a high-quality aesthetic finish is required such as interior wall panelling and fitments but must not be used in exposed, wet or damp conditions.
When we manufacture the hardwood faced plywood, its adhesive can be standard glue or super water resistant glue like phenolic formaldehyde resin. Hardwood plywood made with Phenolic resin is called WBP plywood.
This product is the most common plywood that can be used in most cases. It is the best sale product of our company.
Other common trade names: Commercial Plywood, Standard Plywood, Hardwood Plywood, Ordinary Plywood, Non-structural Plywood.
Hardwood Faced Plywood Types
Basic plywood with a poplar core and one good face & one bad face. Highly recommended for normal uses.
Core of commercial plywood is not perfect. There are some voids and overlaps which don’t affect the the quality.
Most sold commercial grade plywood is laminated with Bintangor, Okoume, Radiata Pine.
The most poplar commercial plywood is 2mm 4mm 6mm 9mm 12mm 15mm 18mm.
Furniture plywood is sanded plywood with a very high-quality veneer core inside. It is intended for use in furniture making company.
Plywood used for furniture tend to have a light colour appearance.
Common thicknesses are 6mm 9mm 12mm 18mm.
WBP plywood is a plywood with very strong waterproof capacity. The water resistant ability is gained by:
- Core with few voids
- WBP Glue
Lower grades of face veneers can be used to reduce its cost.
Fancy plywood is name for decorative plywood with precious veneers. Veneers are quater cut (QC) or crown cut (CC) and manually pasted on surface of a raw plywood.
The most produced fancy plywood in our company is veneered with hardwood veneers like CC Red Oak, CC Black Walnut, CC Chinese Ash, Tzalam, QC Sapele.
Fancy plywood price is comparatively high due to the veneer cost and labour cost. The face veneer is manually glued on the surface by skilled workers.
To reduce cost, only one face of the fancy plywood is laminated with precious hardwood veneer slices.
Common thickness of fancy plywood is 2.5mm 3.6mm 16mm 18mm

We use poplar veneer to make plywood core for most of our production. Poplar density is around 520 kgs per cubic meter. And it is a perfect material for making decent plywood with low cost.
Besides, we use eucalyptus or finger joint board as plywood core.
The veneers we use for plywood surfaces are primarily natural sliced and peeled veneers. Wood species range from local poplar wood to tropical hardwood, baltic birch, North American walnut, and Burma teak. The peeled veneers can make a surface for fancy plywood. Not only hardwood veneers, but we also laminate radiata pine and larch pine on the plywood.
Besides the natural veneers, we can also use reconstituted veneer. The recon veneer is a type of rotary cut veneer created from cheaper species, then dyed, layered, laminated, and laid up with grain that replicates a natural species. It offers outstanding consistency in color and grain.
If you don’t find the veneer you like on the page, you may contact our sales for more choices and colors.
Hardwood Plywood Uses
Min 2.0mm to Max 50mm.
We calibrate each plywood to make sure it is flat and strong with attracting appearance.
Most of them are tropical hardwood from Africa, Malaysia and Russia.
Yes. WBP Plywood is a hardwood faced plywood made with weather and boiling proof glue such as the phenolic adhesive.
It is water resistant but not 100% waterproof. Because the moisture can go into any type of plywood through its glueline and surfaces.
Poplar is actually a hardwood but many people think it as a softwood because its characteristic is more like a softwood.
