The film is adhesive impregnated paper, which are different from melamine paper overlay, PVC, MDO  and HDO.  The function of the film is to protect the inside wood from moisture, water, weather and extend the plywood’s service life. Film Faced Plywood is an exterior plywood used in building and construction projects……


Product Detail

Film Faced Plywood

 Film-faced plywood is lightweight, resistant to corrosion attack and water, easily combined with other materials, and easy to clean and cut. Treating the film-faced plywood’s edges with waterproof paint makes it highly water-and wear-resistant. Due to its durability and the easily handled surface, it can be used in an open environment in construction and building.

Coating the film-faced plywood with high-quality imported films ensures hardness and damage resistance.

The surface of the film-faced plywood is hygienic and resistant to strong detergents.

It can be used in conditions of high-temperature drop, the influence of moisture, detergent cleaning, and provides protection against termites.

We offer two types of film-faced plywood. The first is birch film-faced plywood which is very resistant to water, easy to clean and cut, and one of the world’s best quality plywood. The second is poplar film-faced plywood. This plywood type is also easy to clean and cut and is a softer and lighter material than birch film-faced plywood.


1. Durable and strong: The black phenolic film coating makes the plywood highly resistant to wear and tear, moisture, and environmental factors, making it highly durable and long-lasting.
2. Weather-resistant: The film coating protects the plywood from exposure to water and moisture, making it ideal for use in outdoor construction projects.
3. Versatile: The plywood can be cut, shaped, and bent to fit a wide range of construction needs and can be used for a variety of applications, including concrete formwork, walls, floors, and roofs.
4. Easy to clean: The smooth surface of the film coating makes it easy to clean and maintain, reducing the need for regular maintenance.
5. Cost-effective: Black film-faced plywood is a cost-effective construction material that offers high durability and strength compared to other building materials.
6. Environmentally friendly: The plywood is made from sustainable and renewable sources of hardwood or softwood, making it an environmentally friendly construction material.

1) Construction industry: Shuttering Film Faced Plywood, Concrete Formwork, Shuttering Concrete Formwork, Formwork Plywood

Film-faced plywood is mainly used for construction. So film-faced plywood is also called shuttering film-faced plywood, concrete form, or shuttering concrete form. Because of this end use, customers usually want WBP film-faced plywood, which is more suitable to be used as shuttering for big projects. However, some customers require MR film-faced plywood, which is to be used as shuttering for ordinary projects.

2) Anti-Slip Film Faced Plywood: flooring materials for building vehicles, and work platforms.

According to the types of face/back, film-faced plywood can be divided into smooth film-faced plywood and anti-slip film-faced plywood. Anti-slip film-faced plywood is usually used as the flooring material for vehicles, trucks, and platforms.

3) Film-faced plywood can be used for shelves and furniture, too.

Compared with wood veneer-faced plywood, film-faced plywood is more durable and has more wear-resistant surfaces. So it can be used for making durable furniture and shelves.
