Default Panzerholz Plywood

Hey folks

I'm looking for some interesting plywood, and wondered if y'all knew if it's possible to get it in the USA.
A fellow audio guy mentioned "Panzerholz Plywood" to me recently.
I had never heard of it, but a quick Google search yields a BUNCH of results, most of which are audio related, and most of those were turntable related.
After a bit of research, it turns out the Germans use it in WWII as tank armor, and still to this day use it in armored vehicles, like VIP limousines and such.

How about these attributes for a piece of plywood:
- Extremely high density (so much so, it sinks in water).
- High strength (is used as a metal substitute).
- Is bulletproof.

> HERE'S < an article I found talking about it's lack of resonance.


The audio industry uses it extensively in turntables (record players) due to the lack of resonance.
Here's an example of it used in a turntable. All the wood you see is Panzerholz plywood. The rest of the table is aluminum and acrylic. The beast weighs 800 pounds.

Wow, that's the first I've seen it available in North America. I heard there was a place in Canada, but couldn't find them.
Although for the speakers I'm building, the 5"x10" pieces they have aren't near large enough. I'll have to contact them to see if larger pieces are (or will ever be) available.

Thank you Argoknot!

Hi Bob

I know ,I thought you may get a kick out of seeing it on the this forum

I have a question for you, if that stuff is hard as steel how are you going to rework it, do you have a high end mill machine and plus how do you cut it ?

Bob,

I too am looking for some Panzerholz B-25 for a plinth project for my Panasonic/Technics SP-10 MK2 turntable. I sure could use any information you may have come up with for a supplier of this product in the US.

Thanks,

Mike

As a reformed hi fi nut from the 60's, when I had a Garrard 401 transcription deck and an SME 3009 arm with a shure cartridge and V15E stylus....

Youre all crazy if you think your hearing is good enough to tell the difference between that billion dollar monster deck playing a 5 dollar record, and a digital file through a normal set of speakers.

There, that oughta start a riot or two.
