Phenolic Film-Faced Birch Plywood

Short Description:


Phenolic Film-Faced Birch Plywood

Smooth phenolic film-faced plywood is tough, waterproof, and scratch resistant. They are designed to offer an improved quality of finish and help achieve multiple re-uses in concrete formwork, If cared for properly between pours, the smooth and chemical-resistant surface can allow them to be reused up to 100 times.

Although they were originally designed for use with concrete formwork, as is often the case, these panels have since found a home in a wide range of unplanned uses, where the smooth, easy-clean surface is desirable. Customers that use the panels for this end-use are aware that the panel colors may vary, and that patches may be visible through the translucent film coating.


Product Detail

Birch Film Faced Plywood

Birch Film Faced plywood is an approved solution in need of top-quality formwork plywood. Its film is flat on both sides, I/I quality. Panels are available in different thicknesses from 9 to 21 mm. The birch veneer used achieves the plywood’s high resistance to load, and proven product strength. Its maximum use (cycles count) in terms of regular use, overpays several times the investment made for buying it. 

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.

Phenolic Film-Faced Birch Plywood Feature

1. Strength and Durability: Phenolic film-faced birch plywood is made of high-quality birch veneers that are bonded together with a waterproof phenolic resin. This makes the plywood incredibly strong and durable, with excellent resistance to impact, wear, and tear.
2. Water Resistance: The phenolic film layer on the surface of the plywood provides extra protection against water and moisture, making it suitable for use in wet environments such as marine structures, swimming pools, and wastewater treatment plants.
3. Chemical Resistance: Phenolic film-faced birch plywood is also highly resistant to chemicals and other corrosive substances, making it suitable for use in laboratories, chemical plants, and other environments where exposure to harsh chemicals is a concern.
4. Anti-Slip Surface: Some types of phenolic film-faced birch plywood come with an anti-slip surface, which provides extra grip and helps prevent accidents and injuries in areas where slip resistance is important.
5. Easy to Clean: The smooth surface of the phenolic film layer makes the plywood easy to clean and maintain, which is particularly important in applications where hygiene and cleanliness are a priority, such as in food processing plants and hospitals.
