40% Less Weight

The weight has been lifted! UltraLight Plywood is up to 40% lighter than your average Baltic Birch plywood. If weight is a concern but you still need to retain quality then Ultralight is your solution. The sensible alternative to raise your efficiencies in quality and time. Ultralight Plywood is the new standard for plywood projects.

With a smooth grain structure, UltraLight Plywood is the ideal material for cabinetry, countertops, furniture, and more - anything that requires a lightweight construction. The ultimate and practical plywood for constructing boats, RVs, buses, campers and anything that transports. Lose the weight - reduce the cost!

Benefits that work for you

It's not just the reduced weight, it's also performance. UltraLight was created with cost in mind across the board (pun intended) - from sanded veneers to consistent core density for fastener retention, our goal was to create a composite that reduces labor, saves on machine wear, and performs exceptionally.

Grade AA Veneers

Speed up your prep time, eliminate sanding flaws - ready to paint or laminate.

"Breathe Easy" Adhesive

It's safe. Our exterior grade glues are EPA/CARB TSCA Title VI 3rd party certified.

Engineered for Strength

The perfect mix of hard and softwoods to maximize strength without weight.


40% lighter than regular Baltic Birch plywoods, saving tons on shipping and labor.

Minimal Core Voids

You hate them, we hate them, so we set out to eliminate them with a high-quality layup process.

No Footballs

We hate seeing footballs as much as we hate core voids - so none of those either. No knotholes!

Eco-Friendly Cultivation

Our farm-grown source passes the ITTO Objective 200, ISO 14000 cert and the LACEY Act.

Consistent Thickness
