Plywood

Postby stevebrookman on Sat Jun 04, 2011 8:05 am

hello,

I am going to build the halfpipe. Can I use treated Ply (external) as it will be based outside in typical British weather. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Many thanks

Steve

Hey Steve,
I'm a supplier for the ramp builders in Southern California.
Pressure treated plywood is great for your substrate(under surface), but not your riding surface. That chemical is toxic and you do not want to get spliters from it. If you are using some kind of regular plywood on top, you should seal it with a good water sealer.

There is a company here in the states that makes a perfect polyurethan based paint that work great with todays wheels.
Belive you can purchase online at Ocramps.com. It's called "SkatePaint".

Cheers,
Darrell
