Plywood - Eurolite (Italian Poplar)
0.160 inches 0.240 inches
What is it
An interior grade plywood product made from laminated layers of timber.
This plywood is constructed from clear face veneer with occasional minor repairs.
Poplar engraves well to produce crisp detail. To determine the optimum engraving depth for your design, we suggest prototyping or purchasing a sample of this material from out sample store.
Plywood Eurolite (Italian Poplar) has a thickness tolerance of +/-15% of the material thickness.
The plywood is cut with the grain running horizontally, and the underside surface protected with transfer tape.
Being a thin and natural material the ply can potentially warp which can affect the flatness of parts. Detailed elements and engraving within P2 and P3 design files require spacing out to avoid material warping and compromising cut quality. check out this blog post for more info on how to design for thin plywood.

Adhesives, joints & fastenings
PVA glue joints hold well. Screw joints should be pre-drilled to avoid splitting.
