Meranti BS6566 Aquatek
BS6566 Meranti Plywood
48" X 96"
BS 1088 has 1mm face veneers, void free core with equal or nearly equal core laminations while BS 6566 has thinner face veneers and fewer core laminations. Both have void free cores with WBP (water and boil proof) glue. BS 6566 may have some putty filled splinter voids in the ends.
Color range is dark to light reddish brown, face veneers are one piece, grain tends to be fairly even and straight. Meranti is harder, more rot resistant than Okoume, and makes a stiffer and slightly heavier panel. Good structural plywood particularly for bottoms and larger boats. Our customers also use this for decks, freezers, signs, exterior structures, cabinets and about anything else you can think of requiring a tough stable water proof durable panel.
