Poplar plywood is A lightweight plywood manufactured using black poplar (populus nigra) veneers that are typically laid with each layer perpendicular to the previous. This construction offers a panel that is stable and very strong, but with the added benefit of being extremely lightweight.
Plywood of this type is used with lower powered lasers as it cuts clean and fast with fewer inclusions as found in Birch ply. The use of poplar veneer throughout the construction of this plywood results in a stable & strong panel that is extremely light in weight with a clean, creamy-white face and core. Poplar plywood is regularly used where a clean-faced, consistent, lightweight panel is required. It is also available in large size & thickness.
