Details

By combining the excellent mechanical properties of Garnica plywood—lightness, stability and machinability—with the insulating and ultralight material XPS, a panel with impeccable performance is the result. Ultralight XPS core plywood panels are made from European poplar sourced from sustainable plantations and wide range of finishes of exceptional surface quality. The Ultralight product range is the lightest plywood that Garnica produces and is an excellent solution for numerous applications.

Why Ultralight Poplar?

  • Exceptionally lightweight
  • Excellent heat insulation and sound-proofing
  • Easily machinable, easy to cut and sand
  • Dimensional stability
  • Easily finished with laminates, paint, or veneer

Guide to Maintaining Ultralight Panels:

  • Do not expose the material to extreme storage conditions, e.g. sudden temperature and/or humidity conditions, direct exposure to sunlight, rain, extreme temperatures, etc.
  • These panels are best stored in a well-ventilated environment with relative humidity of between 30% and 80%.
  • Avoid contact with agents that might damage the panels (puddles, earth, mould or fungus, etc.). The extruded polystyrene core will begin to dissolve when it comes to into contact with materials that contain volatile ingredients—such as solvents, petrol, tar and formic acid—or gases such as methane, ethane, propane or butane.
  • We recommend storing the material horizontally on flat surfaces, levelling it with the necessary supports as required.
  • Ultralight panels contain an extruded polystyrene core. They should not be exposed to temperatures above 75 Decrees Celsius, as this would affect their properties.
  • Suitable cutting tools that product clean, tear-free cuts should be used when machining the panels. The use of unsuitable tools may lead to shredding, tearing, poor machining, etc.
  • We recommend sealing the edges and mounting points, as this will extend the useful life of the product and improve its characteristics.
  • The protection and sealing of edges and any altered area (panel edges, especially when cut) will preserve the characteristics of the product for longer.

Specifications

XPS Core:

The high-quality XPS Core has exceptional thermal insulation, high mechanical resistance, low weight, high water tolerance and uniform seal and cellular structure.

Ultralight’s lightweight nature and robust structure gives it a series of characteristics with high-performance. The XPS Core is sandwiched between two pieces of plywood, making the 18mm panels 45% lighter and the 60mm panels up to 75% lighter than standard poplar plywood panels. This core is ideal for covering and finishing with veneers, papers, laminates or fiberboard.

Plywood Grading BB:

Imported plywood (poplar) grading system BB: The front face is graded BB, a high grade which allows for light mineral streaks and a very limited number of knots and splits. BB poplar face is generally even in colour. Single piece face veneer allows small tight pin knots. The Veneer Core consists of one or more plies of poplar veneer, each sheet laid with the grain direction at a right angle to the adjacent sheets to create an exceptionally durable and bonded core.

Rotary Sliced:

Ultralight’s poplar face is rotary sliced, which produces veneers with very distinctive grain patterns. The log rotates toward the blade and is peeled in long, wide sheets. Rotary cut is the only cutting method capable of producing whole, single piece faces.

Fire Behaviour:

  • The extruded polystyrene (XPS) used for the Ultralight core as insulation is an HBCD-free flame retardant component and contains none of the foam blowing agents CFC and HCFC.
  • According to Specification STM-S-001, Index D (2014), Ultralight possesses a very low smoke gas index and has been classified as F1, a material of low toxicity.
  • The I.F. smoke gases index measures the maximum specific optical density (Dm), the smoke obscuration value (VOF4) and the toxicity index (I.T.C.). The test establishes requirements related to the smoke and potential toxicity of practically all flammable materials on a railway vehicle.
