Marine plywood is manufactured from durable face and core veneers, with few defects so it performs longer in humid and wet conditions and resists de-laminating and fungal attack. Constructed using waterproof adhesives to make it suitable for use in wet environments. Marine plywood is generally made of Douglas fir or Western Larch. Non-U.S. sources of marine plywood may use cedar or other woods for the fascia plies. All plies of wood are at least B grade, having knots, but without knotholes. The core may have a gap no larger than 1/8-inch throughout.
Made with softwood veneers glued in layers with alternating grain, and covered with softwood veneer. Uses include outdoor projects (exterior rated), carpentry and construction, shop cabinets, substrates, underlayment for floors and countertops.
Softwood plywood is constructed with face and back panels of softwood veneers: wood from needle or cone bearing trees. An odd number of inner plys, which are also softwood veneers, are sandwiched at right angles to each other between the face and back. These inner plys are laminated in alternating directions giving plywood its strength and durability. Generally not used for decorative purposes, this plywood, in its many grades, has endless hard working uses. Its main use, however, is in construction.
Specs: Light weight, moisture resistant, structural panels for use with I-joists
Description: Rim Board fills the space between the sill plate and the bottom wall plate, or between the top plate and bottom plate in multi-floor construction. In addition to filling the void, Rim Board is an integral structural component that transfers both lateral and vertical forces. To function properly, the Rim Board must match the depth of framing members, and conventional solid sawn lumber typically does not match the new generation of wood I-joists.
Specs: Light weight, moisture resistant, available pre primed.
Southern Yellow Pine grows across the Southern United States, from East Texas to Virginia, there are four main species: shortleaf, longleaf, loblolly or slash. Southern Yellow Pine is used for many applications due to the desirable inherent characteristics:
HIGH STRENGTH / NAIL HOLDING / DURABILITY - highly resistant to wear; suitable for high-traffic applications / TREATABILITY - one of the easiest softwoods to pressure-treat with preservatives. QUALITY - produced to the highest standards.
