Products | IBuilt CoreClad

IBuilt CoreClad Plywood cladding is a "Core" treated rough sawn plywood cladding product offering exceptional durability and strength.

Plywood veneer is peeled from the log on a rotary lathe, dried, treated then manufactured into plywood by placing veneers in a perpendicular orientation. Sheets are bonded with a permanent phenolic resin which is commonly referred to as a Type 'A' structural bond. The bond will not breakdown under heat, wet or cold conditions. The resulting sheets are then machined, rough sawn, grooved and shiplapped to form the finished cladding sheet.

CoreClad has a 'pass™' (Product Assurance Supplier Statement). A pass™ makes a clear, rigorous statement that CoreClad complies with all the necessary regulations and legislation. It also summarises CoreClads purpose, the scope of its use and any limitations.
