View Brochure

Austral Premium AC (Interior) is manufactured to AS 2270 and is intended for use in non-structural, interior applications where a high quality aesthetic finish is required. Typical applications include internal wall panelling, furniture and fitments, interior door skins and ceiling linings. Interior plywood must not be used in exposed, wet or damp conditions.

Acoustic

Hoop pine plywood has become very popular in commercial applications where the natural warmth of hoop pine is combined with the acoustic properties of panel perforations. Sizes and thicknesses for this product: 2400x1200 and 2700x1200mm, in thicknesses of 6.5, 9, 12.5 and 16mm. More information.

Fire Rating

Untreated Hoop Pine plywood is rated "Group 3", certified by CSIRO to AS/NZS 3837, complying to BCA requirements. See Fire Resistance for further details.

Bending

Bending plywood in Hoop pine is available for those hard to cover jobs such as internal pillars and curved reception areas. This product is available in 2400x1200mm panels in thicknesses of 1.5 and 3mm. More information.

Shopfitting

Shopfitting is an application where the use of Hoop pine is increasing rapidly. It is easily worked with conventional wood working tools and, being assured of an "A" grade face can save costly time spent trying to improve a lower grade plywood.

Natural BB

A "Natural BB" option is available for our Interior Hoop Pine plywood where a more natural look is required.  This option uses "B" face veneers, exhibiting wood grain characteristics to a greater degree.

Finishing

If used as an interior wall or ceiling lining, we recommend Austral pre-finishing (click for more information).

Take care in free standing applications

Plywood is a natural product that can be affected by changes in ambient weather conditions, possibly causing previously flat sheets to bow. At Austral Plywoods all precautions are taken to ensure flatness at time of dispatch, however once the plywood has left our factory we cannot guarantee sheets to remain flat unless fastened. This is particularly important where free standing kitchen/cabinet doors are concerned.

Important - Before using oil based coatings & stains, ensure that they are compatible with Hoop Pine plywood.  Although we do recommend water based finishes, stains from Livos Australia have been tested and approved by Austral Plywoods as being suitable for use with Hoop Pine plywood.  Other oil based coatings are not recommended on plywood where the finished job will be subject to close scrutiny. Other oil based coatings tend to penetrate the face veneer of the plywood and strongly highlight the natural figure in the timber, darkening it considerably. In many applications this may not be desirable. Other oil based stains also tend to swell the grain of the surface veneer, again potentially disfiguring the plywood.
