We provide various types of plywood for our customers to choose from which we can cut to any size or shape using our CNC router, allowing for a greater level of accuracy and repeatability. Whatever shape you need, we can cut it – all you need to do is send us your drawings, in either CAD or a sketch format, and we can cut it for you. Our CNC router can be also used for rebating, pocketing and hole cutting on virtually any sheet material, as well as plywood. We also provide laser cutting and CNC engraving services for additional customisation of your plywood sheets.
If you want to print onto plywood, you may want to consider birch plywood, which provides a smooth surface texture that’s ideally suited to printing. Using state-of-the-art UV printers, we have the capability to print full sheets of plywood in one go, providing a professional result at a much faster rate than painting can offer. We currently only list 8x4 sheets (2440x1220mm) but we’re able to purchase and cut sheets of up to 2000x3000mm, so get in touch with our team today to discuss your specific requirements. There’s the option of next day delivery if you’re working to a tight deadline, and if you are placing larger orders, we can deliver throughout most of the UK using our own transport service. If you have a larger ongoing project taking place, contact us to discuss bulk discounts and regular supply orders.
25mm marine plywood sheets are specifically designed to be used in both internal and external applications, particularly for areas that are prone to humidity or wet conditions such as bathrooms, kitchens or sheds. It is suitable for various applications, both in domestic properties and for commercial use, from storage boxes and cold frames to walls and indoor vehicle storage areas. Marine plywood is designed to resist fungal attacks and delamination and is great for applications that require a long-lasting and durable material.
25mm Marine Plywood Grades
Wood comes in a variety of grades; we offer the grades listed below. See our plywood grading guide for more information on the types available.
Marine plywood is for use in environments where the wood is exposed to moisture for extended periods. The type of wood we offer has a high-quality BB/BB face grade and is well-suited to demanding environments such as gardens, bathrooms and parks as well as for roof supports and advertising panels that will be exposed to harsh weather conditions.
Advantages of 25mm Marine Plywood
Marine plywood is a great material for environments which are prone to damp and humidity, as it retains its structure and strength in areas where standard woods would be prone to warping and rotting over time. Marine plywood has excellent machinability and can be cut easily using standard power tools and handsaws, so it’s perfect for DIY projects. This variety of plywood can be used for interior and exterior applications and is versatile as well as being cost-effective. The affordability of this material means that customers benefit from a high-quality material that won’t break the bank. Our other most popular sizes are 12mm marine plywood and 18mm marine plywood.
Applications of 25mm Plywood Sheets
25mm marine plywood can be used for a variety of applications and at this thickness, it is perfect for projects which need to be resistant to warping or bending. From concrete frameworks, roofing and flooring to sheds and storage containers, this variety of plywood is useful for many different projects. If the wood is being used outside, ensure that the edges of the plywood are treated with an appropriate wood preserver to ensure that the material stays in great condition long-term. We also offer birch plywood, hardwood plywood and softwood plywood.

Frequently Asked Questions about Marine Plywood
Is marine plywood waterproof?
Marine plywood is not waterproof, however, it has a negligible core gap so that the likelihood of water getting trapped between the layers is minimised. This provides a strong and stable glue bond for extra strength.
What is special about marine plywood?
Marine plywood is special as it prevents water from getting trapped between the layers of the real wood veneers. As such it creates a sheet that is more water-resistant than normal plywood and is ideal for those intending on utilising it around water.
What is the best way to seal marine plywood?
Since marine plywood is typically used around or in water, you’ll need to treat every surface of the wood with sealant. You can find a good waterproof penetrating epoxy to be ideal as it works deep into the wood, dries transparent, and requires less maintenance than other types of sealant.
Do you need marine grade plywood?
We recommend marine grade plywood around any instance where your sheet is going to be near water.
How much is marine plywood?
Our marine plywood ranges in price from £62 per square metre to £150 depending on thickness. This does not include any cutouts, drilled holes or any additional means of alterations.
Can you paint plywood?
You can paint plywood, but be sure to use primer, as plywood will absorb more paint than you would expect so the primer seals the plywood, and allows it to take to the paint more easily keeping your surface smooth and sealed.
Can you bend plywood?
It is possible to bend plywood. There are numerous ways of bending plywood, but if you are after a sheet that cannot be bent, look at our MDF sheeting.
What is plywood used for?
Plywood can be used for a wide range of versatile structural applications whether interior or exterior, from furniture to internal panelling.
How strong is plywood?
Plywood is relatively strong as it is numerous layers of wood pressed together. For a stronger piece of plywood, look for 5-ply or multi-ply sheets as these will have more layers, and thus more strength.
What are the types of plywood?
We sell a variety of types of plywood, including softwood, hardwood, marine, and birch, all of which have specific characteristics and will aid specific projects. For more information on the respected types, read their descriptions at the bottom of their product pages.
Can I cut plywood?
It is possible to cut plywood yourself, but we are able to do it for you if you request at the point of ordering. To do so yourself please follow safety procedures, and use a sharp saw else you risk the sheet breaking.
How is plywood made?
Plywood is made by glueing a series of thin veneered sheets of wood together. Each adjacent layer is rotated by up to 90 degrees to reduce the risk of splitting when nailed in at the edges. This technique, referred to as cross-grain, improves strength, stability and prevents warping, making it an excellent general-purpose construction panel.
How do you seal plywood edges?
Plywood should be sealed to prevent moisture from affecting the sheets and causing warping. The sealant you use will depend based on how you intend to use the plywood, but you should use something quick-drying and can withstand all temperatures, and be compatible with paint if you intend to paint your plywood.
