What is the difference between ficem board and marine plywood?

Ficem Board is a light weight fiber cement board which is immune to permanent moisture damage.

Marine Plywood

Many Australians grow up with the belief that Marine Plywood is a 'special' product made with secret adhesives that make it virtually indestructible. This is an urban myth.

The adhesive (glue) that is used to bond the veneers of Marine Plywood together is the same as any other structural plywood that is manufactured in Australia.

Marine Plywood is designed to absorb these forces due to the fact that this plywood is the closest to solid wood. In fact it is better than solid wood with defects having been graded out.
