White Ply is a laminated poplar ply board. More information about the manufacture and background of our ply cored boards can be found by following the link to our Ply Laminate Material page. The board is composed of high pressure laminate sandwiching a poplar ply core. In the case of HPL a very minimal texture is applied to the board during manufacture and so the surface is flat and smooth. We classify the texture of this board as Light meaning you would be be able to easily write on it so it is more than fit for purpose as a desk material.
For the user this means a tough, heat and stain resistant surface which is durable and capable of withstanding an everyday home office or indeed commercial office environment. Laminated ply is widely used in the furniture industry for kitchens, office furniture, cabinetry and restaurant and hotel fit-out so it is a proven and safe material.
Note our HPL ply tops have different colours on each side. One side is grey and one white. Thus if you order a white top the underside will be grey an if you order a grey top the underside will be white.
