Film faced plywood is an exterior plywood used in building and construction projects. It has a special film coating on its surface made from phenol or melamine on either or both sides which gives the plywood a higher resistance to moisture, abrasion, chemical degradation and fungal attack compared to ordinary plywood.
Because of its increased stability and resistance to moisture, ultraviolet radiation and corrosive chemicals, film-faced plywood is ideal for outdoor applications such as the external surfaces of new buildings. The extra film layer and acrylic varnished edges of this type of plywood make it more durable and less able to distort when used outdoors in harsh weather and adverse conditions. Buildings in direct sunlight are less prone to wear and tear if they are made from film-faced plywood, at least as part of the overall structure.
The plywood is useful for forming level molding boards and girder molding boards, which need to be resistant to strong forces, large amounts of fast-flowing water and yet still maintain their structural integrity and shape. There is a choice of thicknesses available, depending on requirements, from 12mm, 15mm and 18mm to 21mm, 24mm and 27mm. Some examples can reach 30mm.
Film faced plywood is a waterproof plywood manufactured for concrete shuttering and forming. Phenolic film faced plywood is suitable for multiple uses, cheap, easy to clean and cut, thus intensively used by the formwork industry.
Sulong Wood is a major manufacturer of film faced plywood in China. We own the brand name SULONG.
Sulong film faced plywood is manufactured with quality veneers with a WBP glue that can withstand harsh weather and rain. Both surfaces of the plywood are coated with a phenolic film overlay and the four edges are sealed with waterproof paint.
Common trade names are phenolic board, formply, formwork plywood, phenolic film faced plywood, black marine plywood, MDO HDO overlay plyform, PSF plywood, Tego ply, etc.
Most popular film faced plywood are 1220x2440x18mm and 1220x2440x12mm with black/brown film on both faces of the panel.
