Ideal for both residential and light/temporary construction, ply refers to boards made from thin sheets of veneer made from debarked lumber. These sheets are glued together to give the board increased strength and stability. Ply is commonly used to provide support for floors, walls, roofs, and more.

Arc form ply

Form Ply

This is a type of structural plywood that features a moisture-resistant surface. It is often used in concrete formwork.
5/8″ thick and 4″×8′ in dimension

arc dress ply

Dress Ply

Its smooth, attractive surface makes it perfect for design-friendly projects such as cabinetry and furniture-making.
3/16, 1/4, 3/8, 5/8, 1/2 and 3/4 sizes

arc film-faced ply

Film-Faced Ply

Covered with a special coating that increases its ability to resist moisture, chemical degradation and fungal attack, film-faced plywood has a range of permanent uses, and is often incorporated in the finishing stages of construction.
3/4″ and 5/8″ sizes

Arc hardboard


Popularly known as ‘Celotex’, this wood-based sheeting has a smooth side and a rough side. This is most often used in the construction of concrete form for arches, wall partitioning, ceilings, roofing and in furniture-making.

arc cement board

Cement Board

Made from a combination of cement and other reinforcing fibres, cement board is typically used as a tile backing board. This can be attached to wood or steel studs to create a substrate for vertical tiles, or installed horizontally to plywood for tile floors, kitchen counters and backsplashes. It is quite a versatile material, and can also be used for exterior construction as a base for exterior plaster (stucco) or as the finish itself.

arc sheetrock


This drywall contains an oil-based additive in its covering which boosts its ability to resist moisture. This is commonly used in washrooms, and other areas that are usually exposed to high levels of humidity.
