High quality 600mm x 400mm Birch Plywood sheets. Suitable for a wide range of applications, including use on a laser cutter.

This is B/BB grade Birch Plywood with B grade on the topside and BB grade on the underside. Please note: As wood is a natural product, there is often a crook or bow to the sheet. The natural twist might be in excess of 25mm (see below - Tolerances and Caution).

The B grade topside shows the natural look of the wood. There will be changes in colour that show the grain pattern. Sound, smooth knots are allowed and these will typically be under 15mm to 35mm in diameter. The surface should normally be free from open knots and plugs. This material should be suitable for paint / stain or a lacquered finish.

BB grade is similar to B grade but allows for larger knots and repairs to the face. Sound, smooth knots are allowed and these will typically be under 50mm in diameter. Open knots can be repaired with wooden plugs. The material should be suitable for applications where the visual look is not critical.

Our Birch Plywood uses an EN314-2 Class 1 glue which is suitable for interior (dry) conditions. Interior glue is generally considered the preferred option for materials that are to be laser cut. This is because the exterior glues can cause a more obvious 'burnt' look on and around the area that is cut.

Knots or resin within the material can cause scorch marks when used on a laser cutter. These can usually be removed with fine grade wet and dry sandpaper.

Although some sheets may have 2 faultless faces, some may have imperfections on both sides and therefore this product is most suitable for applications where a solid surface is needed but the visual aspects are not critical.

This material is FSC certified.

Features:

  • B grade finish on topside.
  • BB grade finish on underside.
  • FSC certified(Forestry Standards Commission).
  • Interior grade glue.

Tolerances:

The manufacturing tolerance for the thickness of plywood sheets are the stated thickness +0.3mm/-0.4mm. This means a 3mm plywood sheet could be between 2.6mm and 3.3mm in thickness.

Caution:

  • As wood is a natural product there is often a bow or crook to plywood, and in some cases a twist. We have measured in excess of 25mm rise between the flat centre of the plywood and the corner. These twists are completely normal and add to the natural character of the plywood. If you are using this product on a laser cutter; these sheets should be strapped/taped to the laser bed before cutting.

Note:

  • On all Plywood and Perspex Sheet Orders (excluding A4 size) there is a flat delivery charge of £6.50 per order.

    Hi Haitham, Unfortunately all of our materials come pre-cut into us from our supplier so we can’t cut to size. Also we have recently introduced a larger range of sheet sizes in the MDF, these will provide the most effective yield from the large sheet to ensure the cost is kept down. As such we are unable to supply the sheet size you have requested. All our MDF can be found here, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/materials/laser-mdf.html

    We don’t currently stock a larger sheet size in the birch, however we are always looking to expand our range of materials including sheet sizes. If you email sales@kitronik.co.uk with the sheet size you require and the Qty we will look to see if we can obtain this.

    A: Hi, if you bend it the other way and leave a weight on it for some time it should flatten out, the easiest way to do this is to get two books of similar thickness and lay the sheet across them like a bride with the sheet arcing upwards, then put a weight on it to push it flat. Alternatively if you put it in the laser so the edges stick up and tape them down that seems to work quite well.

    A: We are always looking to expand the range and if there looks to be sufficient interest then larger sheet sizes could be added. In order to not increase the shipping cost the size would want to be 1000 x 600mm or smaller. Is there a size that you had in mind?

    A: We don't currently stock ply in sizes above 600x400, it is something we are looking at though. How much would you require?

    A: Hi, sorry if it is unclear. The charge is per order if the order contains plywood or perspex. So if you order 1 sheet or 10 sheets the delivery cost will be £6.50. If you email me the product code of the micro SD card reader I can see how long it would take for us to get one in. Please email support@kitronik.co.uk
