Poplar Plywood  "From top European mills for quality and sustainability"

Poplar Ply - Superb quality and lightweight

ELS laminates can be bonded to our own brand of Poplar Ply. Grown on plantations for sustainability, and quality controlled by ELS at every stage, this high quality material is up to 30% lighter than standard ply. Bonding Poplar Plywood with laminate is an exciting alternative to MDF and chipboard giving you a versatile, cost effective and environmentally friendly solution to even the most demanding design requirements.

Our large stocks, facilitating continuity of supply, make it a very creative resource and a very practical proposition.

Composition of Poplar Ply

The outer and inner layers are poplar veneer sheets, finished with a ceiba face. They are symmetrically cross-bonded. The grain of the outer surfaces may be either in the direction of the greater size of the panel (long-grain multiply - Picture 1) or in the direction of the smaller size (cross-grain multiply - Picture 2). In either cases the first size is that of the grain direction. Up to 6 mm. the thickness refers only to plywood panels (Picture 3).
