shuttering purpose grade plywood prices

Updated on February 16, 2012

Shuttering grade plywood

Any type of exterior grade plywood can be used for constructional purposes. But with limitations. Because of cement reaction with the plywood. Even though we use the exterior grade glue for making plywood , there is a chance for deterioration of plywood surfaces. So, choosing of shuttering grade plywood and understanding the requirements is important. Say ,you are using exterior grade plywood as shuttering grade plywood. It can be used for 15times. But the thing is, you must use the plywood for a number of times before you discard the same. This is not only improve the construction shapes also saves a good amount of money.

Criteria for choosing the shuttering plywood

1, Plywood made out of exterior grade glue.

2. Plywood grade should be either AB or BB with limitations of knots and knot sizes. Even you must know the core veneer which is used for ply construction should be free from above average knots and splits and joints. These information you may get it from the manufacturers or use as your shuttering plywood spec while ordering for.

3. Exterior grade plywood with film facing is good for long lasting shuttering grade plywood.

4. To make sure , you can spend some money on testing the shuttering grade from Government authorised laboratories . Otherwise make sure the material is certified by Government body. This will help to avoid buying cheaper products with cheaper rates.

5. Consult the wood technologist or plywood technologist to make sure that you are buying the right products for shuttering purposes.

6. Shuttering grade plywood with the thickness of 18 to 25 mm always recommended. Avoid lesser thickness to maintain shapes and to come out from plywood deformation, like warp and twist.

7. Plywood for shuttering may be of hardwood or softwood , provided there are only minimum defects. Mostly hardwood plywood for shuttering preferred.

8. Always buy branded plywood for shuttering to avoid any problems after buying. There should be customer service and quick response.

      I like your new avatar! Does it have religious significance or is it just a beautifully robed woman. Kind of fuzzy but striking with the lights, etc. Very pretty!

      (Concrete)Shuttering grade plywood which is being used only in construction purposes for shapes. Earlier days for constructional purposes wooden planks were used. Nowadays shuttering plywood is replaced .I used the technical term shuttering grade. Hope you understand the purpose it is being used. Thank u for commenting on this hub.

      I'm not sure what you mean by shuttering. Are you talking about shutters (decorative pieces of wood...or in some cases plastic) placed on either side of an exterior window to "dress" it up visually? The video did make it look like that plywood had a type of film over it. Exactly how is this used?
