Brown Film Faced Plywood

Short Description:


Film Faced Plywood is also called Formwork Plywood, Shuttering Plywood, or Concrete formwork.   Film-faced plywood is a special plywood with two sides coated with a wearable and waterproof film. The film is adhesive-impregnated paper, which is different from melamine paper overlay, PVC, MDO, and HDO.  The function of the film is to protect the inside wood from moisture, water, and weather and extend the plywood’s service life. Film Faced Plywood is exterior plywood used in building and construction projects……


Product Detail

 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 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.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.
