Torch-Down Plywood


Is there plywood made of torch-down material and if so- I am looking to get a price for a 4'X8' sheet of 3/4" if this exists. Thank you!

What in the world is "torch-down" material??? Never heard of it. Are you located outside of the USA?

I figured it out he wants to use plywood instead of fiberglass sheet to lay the torch down membrane roofing.

I don’t have any first hand knowledge of this subject, but thought that there would not be any plywood used for this purpose. Because of the applied open flame.

I used torch-down material on my deck. Solid plywood. As far as I know, that is the way it is done routinely. You heat the material, not the substrate, so I see no problem w/ wood.

What is it your really trying to do with this plywood?
And I agree there's just no such thing as torched down plywood.
There's torched down roofing but only a fool DIY would try and do it, unless your looking to burn the house down get a pro roofing company with lots of insurance to do this one.

So I guess I'm a fool. Huh. And all these years I thought I was a pretty savvy individual. The stuff you learn on forums is amazing.

I'm hoping some of the roofers on here will post some of the pictures again of the roofs on fire from someone trying to do a torched down roof.
