Interior or Exterior plywood?? It all comes down to the Glue!!!

With plywood there are two types: Interior or Exterior plywoods. Some plywoods are specifically made for interior use like our Bendy or Lite Ply. The majority of plywoods on the market today are exterior plywoods as they can be used for both interior and exterior applications. The main different between interior and exterior plywoods in the glue used for the laminations.

Interior plywood has an interior glue applied as is not suitable for exterior use. An exterior grade ply has an A Bond glue which is perfect for exterior applications. The way to see the difference between exterior and interior plywoods is looking at the glue lines on the side of the sheets. An exterior plywood will show as black glue line as pictured below.

Acoustic Ply

Acoustics are an important component of many design and construction projects. Acoustic panelling is important in settings such as concert halls, auditoriums, lecture halls, and gymnasiums. While acoustic panels visually complement any environment, it’s the sound-enhancing properties of acoustic panels that make the greatest contribution to its use in construction. Absorbing incidental noise, acoustic panels preserve the serenity and tranquillity of any busy environment.

VJS Joinery Supplies provide numerous acoustic options for wall and ceiling linings by way of perforations and slots. Perforations and slots are available in a number of patterns, providing a finish that is both functional and decorative.

We recommend Premium A/C (Hoop Pine), A/A (Radiata) Exterior Non-Structural and Premium Birch Multiply for acoustic purposes, using this will produce a lighter and brighter finish.

Many other substrate options are also available including MDF Board and fire retardant panels.

Clear finishing, edge sealing and the application of sound absorbing backing material options are also available.
