Keruing Dipterocarpus or Brownwood is a hardwood ply with an attractive and even, but open, grain. Often referred to as 'Container Ply' Brownwood is widely used in joinery, linings and cabinetry (including vanities and bar tops). Keruing is an even light brown and looks fantastic when lacquered. Keruing is one the most consistent plywoods in colour — from sheet to sheet, giving a consistent medium brown colour, making it easier to match the sheets across a job.
Extremely durable and strong, this ply is also used in the automotive industry, and is suitable for wet areas. Keruing uses moisture resistant glue as standard, or is available as full Marine Grade.
2440 x 1220mm sheet size, available in a variety of thicknesses:
Being one the most consistent plywoods in colour, Keruing is suitable where sheet matching is required across a job. Keruing can be used externally in covered areas, such as ute deck sides, soffit linings, outdoor bars:
Plywood is a natural product that can be affected by changes in weather conditions: moisture and temperature. Increased moisture content or temperature variation may cause internal stresses causing previously flat sheets to bow. At Plymasters precautions are taken to minimise this effect. However, once the plywood has left the warehouse Plymasters cannot guarantee sheets to remain flat unless fastened. This is particularly important where free standing kitchen/cabinet doors are concerned. Stack on a firm raised base with enough support to prevent sagging. Cover the pallet to protect top and edges.
When stored, handled, installed and maintained in accordance with the Keruing Brownwood Technical Information, Keuring Brownwood will meet the durability requirements of the New Zealand Building Code (NZBC) B2/AS1 and has a servicable life of at least 15 years.
Established in New Zealand for over 10 years, and used in thousands of projects. Application ranging from storage, shelving, wet area cabinetry, kitchen benchtops, bar tops, wall lining and ute trays.
