This is a high quality 1.5mm Flexible Birch Plywood sheet produced in Finland which is suitable for a wide range of applications and is suitable for laser cutting. It is bendy and can be flexed to create curved designs.
This is BR 'veneer' grade Birch Plywood. This is similar to B grade material, with knots that would typically not exceed 7mm to 8mm in diameter. It shows the natural look of the wood and will show natural colour variations. These thinner plywoods are used in specialist applications and tend to have a slightly higher quality feel. The surface of the material is sanded to a smoother finish than that that of most plywoods.
This 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. We use interior glues because exterior glues can cause a more obvious 'burnt' look on and around the area that is cut.
This material is PEFC certified.

The manufacturing tolerance for the thickness of plywood sheets are the stated thickness +/-10%. This means a 1.5mm plywood sheet could be between 1.35mm and 1.65mm in thickness.
- As wood is a natural product there is often a bow or crook to plywood, and in some cases a twist. We have measured curvature as much as a 30mm rise between the flat center of the plywood and the corner, therefore if using on a laser cutter these sheets should be strapped/taped to the laser bed before cutting.
- On all Plywood, MDF and Perspex Sheet Orders (excluding A4 size) there is a flat delivery charge of £6.50 per order.

Hi, what is the approximate maximum bend radius for the 1.5mm ply? I'm after a radius of about 25mm. Would I need to go with the 0.8mm ply for that? Thanks

The 1.5mm Birch is flexible however the 0.8 mm is a lot is more flexible and as such would most likely be more suitable. For an example of how flexible each sheet is watch this video, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qm0gNzIEtVU#t=45
