Does anyone have a source for true 1/4 birch plywood?

I need some 1/4 Birch plywood (6.35mm ) for repairs to my trailer and all I can find is what they call 1/4 which is only 5.2 MM. Does anyone make a true 1/4 birch plywood any more.
Thanks Steve

I'd suggest trying M.L. Condon Company Inc..

if they don't have it, they are likely to be able to tell you where you can find it.

I'd picked up some "1/4 inch" birch cabinet-back ply in Nordeast Minneapolis last month at Youngblood cabinetmakers' wholesale/retail lumber yard. Went down & measured it just now -- it's maybe 5.5mm or just shy. It has one a one-ply solid core -- core feels soft -- poplar?

But true -- nothing like a quarter inch.

Check out this site.
I do a bit of woodworking and they have about everything. I notice some 6 nil birch under Russian birch and the marine listing. I am looking for the Melanie coated for the insides of the cabinets as well

I found some but it was a type of composit center and did not think it would hold up well. I am just going to use 1/2" plywood which is not really 1/2 but between 1/2 and 1/4.
