Glueing 22g Cold Rolled Steel To Plywood


Hello all!

Another one to get some wisdom on.

Customer needs an exterior panel replaced, we need it to be 1 inch thick exactly. My idea is to get 3/4 plywood skin it over with 1/4 and then glue on a 22g steel to protect it. Then the steel would be primered and painted to protect.

What type of suggestions do you have to get the steel to stay attached.

The panel will be in a commercial setting. It is more of a temporary situation probably will be a 5 year fix then they will do a more permanent situation.

The panel fits inside of window channel

Why cold rolled steel? For that hot rolled should be fine. I'd don't see why a good polyurethane, or silicone adhesive type caulk gun grade wouldn't work.

yes as mentioned, some kind of adhesive should work. I would do both surfaces like one would do with contact paper. Work the material onto the board then use a small hand held rubber roller to work it totally flat. May even want to lay another sheet of plywood over it with some serious weight on it until its set.

I'd use contact cement for the metal.

Basically, hot rolled is rough and scaly while cold rolled is much smoother and cleaner. You could make a case for hot rolled to be more "glueable", but it's pretty ugly. Much less likely to be on the shelf at the store too.

Oh good to know. Yes this needs to be somewhat good looking as it will be an exterior wall directly in front of customers

NP-1 Will stick the metal to plywood and hold for a very long time.

Re: Glueing 22g Cold Rolled Steel To Plywood


Instead of using steel, why not go with something more weather resistant like sheet vinyl? It comes in several different colors and textures, and spray or contact adhesive works great on it. But best of all... no need to paint it! Cheaper, easier and less maintenance, no brainer if you ask me!
