Sapele Mahogany Ribbon-Stripe
Marine Plywood

Ribbon Stripe refers to the beautiful straight grained quartered and rift sliced veneers used in this product. Our Ribbon Stripe Sapele plywood is applied to a marine plywood substrate, usually meranti. The substrate plies  are glued with WPB exterior glues while the decorative veneer is glued with type I exterior glue. Typical boat applications for the standard grade panel includes cabinets and interiors. It is recommended for interior use. If you wish to use it for exterior applications you must seal it heavily and performance is not guaranteed. Do not confuse this with Sapele throughout BS 1088 marine plywood. The BS 1088 product is rotary cut and does not have the ribbon stripe appearance.

*If you intend to use this on an exterior exposure application you must completely seal all edges and faces to keep water from penetrating into the plywood. 4 coats of Smith's clear penetrating epoxy (or equivalent) must be applied to all edges and 2 coats to both faces. A minimum of 10 coats of exterior varnish (Spar varnish or equivalent) must be applied to all edges with at least 6 coats applied to the good face and 2 coats on the back. No warranty is available and never use below the water line.
Core Plywood Bonding Type:
The core plywood bonding shall be WPB and meet the test requirements of this British Standard and using an adhesive of the type which by systematic tests and by records in service of the product over many years has been proven highly resistant to weather, micro-organisms, cold and boiling water, steam and dry heat. The British Standard applies to plywood made with untreated tropical hardwood veneers having a suitable prescribed level of resistance to fungal attack with a bond of WBP glue quality between the plies. It does not need to be "British made" material.
Face Plywood Bonding Type:
The face veneer shall be bonded to the exterior grade composed core plywood with type I exterior glue. Marine Plywood by Homestead does not warranty type I exterior glue bond for exterior applications. However good success has been attained in exterior above water line applications when all sides and edges are sealed per above instructions.
Quality of Core Veneers: Exterior grade composed core for marine plywood manufactured from selected untreated tropical hardwoods. Fire treating is available and as a separate process after manufacture. Core veneers shall be meranti, gurjan, okoume or subspecies there of also known by the trade names Joubert, HydroCore, HydroTech or PowerPly. Small splits are permitted, and there is no limitation on the number of pin knots or edge joints. Discoloration is permissible, provided it is free from dote. Veneers need not be matched for color. There shall be no end joints. Veneers shall be smoothly cut.
Quality of Face Veneers
: Face veneer shall be plain, rift or quarter sliced. The method of cutting is at the option of the manufacturer unless it is specified by the purchaser at the time of ordering. These shall present a solid surface, free from open defects. They shall be free from knots, other than sound pin knots, of which there shall be no more than 6 in any area 30cm square , and not more than an average of 2 per 30 cm square over the whole area of the board. The veneers shall be reasonably free from irregular grain, due note being taken to the characteristics of the species being used. Isolated pinholes not along the plane of the veneers, and occasional closed splits are permissible. Veneers showing compression failure shall be excluded. Occasional minor discoloration is permissible.
Core Veneer Thickness: Tolerances of the core veneers vary as follows. 4mm +.02/-0.6 6mm,  +.04/-0.65 9mm, +.06/-0.75 12mm +.09/-0.82 15mm +.1/-0.9 18mm +.12/-0.98 22mm From the above we can assume that 6mm material will arrive at thickness between 6.04 mm and 5.35mm
Veneer Thickness:  Standard face veneer thickness shall be at least .6mm measured before sanding. Premium face veneer thickness shall be at least 1.4 mm measured before sanding. A face veneer may also be applied to the back of the core plywood to balance the sheet but is not mandatory.
