DEFINITION  HECHTHOUT is a weather and water proof Okoume Marine plywood and has proved itself for over 60 years in construction and boatbuilding. Hechthout is made of the highest quality Okoume veneers, both aesthetical and technical without gaps and knots. Hechthout stands for durability with a minimum maintenance cost. Hechthout is completely (Sea) waterproof and holds a unique 20 years guarantee.
USE  Wall cladding, eaves, dormer windows, garage doors, sign writing, hulls, cabin constructions.
Hechthout can be used both painted or transparent varnished.  
ADVANTAGES  Light weight and easy to use. ‘hidden’ fixing in the traditional way or through gluing. Almost insensitive for expansion or contraction by temperature fluctuations. Low maintenance costs. Long durability. Through the use of many thinner plies the panel is very strong, therefore longer support distances are allowed.
