Bending Plywood, also known as Bendy Ply, Flexible Plywood, or Flexi Ply, is a versatile and lightweight plywood that can bend and curve around a tight radius while remaining stable and easy to handle.

Bending plywood is available in two sheet types that bend following the direction of the grain. 'Long Band' sheets bend along the length of the sheet, while 'Short Band' sheets bend across the width of the sheet. For example, 'Long Band' sheets can be rolled up to create a vertical column up to 2440 mm high, while 'Short Band' sheets can be rolled up to create a shorter column up to 1220 mm high.

This flexible plywood has low formaldehyde content, and is classified E-1. It features a 2-ply construction with a thin centre core and a B grade face and back and is suitable for internal use only.

European 'Euro' Bending Plywood has a tighter bend radius compared to Flexi Bending Plywood. The recommended minimum bending radius for Flexi Bending Plywood is approximately 340 mm, while European Bending Plywood is approximately 110 mm for 8 mm sheet thicknesses, and 80 mm for 5 mm sheet thicknesses.

Perfect for a wide range of applications, including furniture making, cabinetry, decorative panelling, and more. Bending Plywood can be easily cut and shaped with standard woodworking tools, and its lightweight construction makes it easy to handle and transport.

Important notice

Plywood is a natural wood product that can be affected by ambient weather conditions which may cause sheets to bow. At Bord, all precautions are taken to ensure flatness at time of dispatch. Once plywood has left our factory we cannot guarantee sheets will remain flat unless fastened. This is particularly important for non-fastened cabinet doors.

About Plywood

Plywood is a sheet building material used in construction and furniture making. It is a man-made product, made by glueing thin layers of wood veneer together. There are a number of plywood varieties. Most plywood is graded from A to D. An A grade is appearance grade and free from surface defects. Whereas a C/D grade has flaws and is generally used for structural applications. As one of the leading commercial plywood suppliers in Melbourne and Australia, we pride ourselves on being experts in plywood and can provide professional advice to ensure you have the right product for the job.
