AB Fir is a utilitarian marine plywood. It is rotary cut, has douglas fir faces, and will have football patches. It is a rigid plywood. It is suitable for all marine applications, boat building and any outdoor use where the project will be regularly exposed to moisture.
Marine Plywood, like any plywood, is made up of several thin layers of veneer, or laminates. The layers of wood used in marine plywood are not treated to be rot resistant. The glues used to hold the laminates together are waterproof. This means that if the plywood is exposed to dampness or water that it will be less likely to de-laminate.
It is very important to tightly seal the edges of the plywood. It is expected that the plywood will be finished in its final application.
