Formply Uses



Is phenolic overlaid plywood waterproof?

The phenolic film overlay is not 100% waterproof. It can make the water invasion slower than other materials. The four edges of the panel sheet is also sealed in order to obtain a waterproof capability. The glue inside the plywood is WBP weather and boiling proof bond. It is not 100% waterproof but the treatment can prevent the plywood to swell under humid.

What is phenolic film faced plywood used for?

Due to its durability film faced plywood is widely used in concrete forming and vehicle flooring, loading platforms, truck and trailer floors and wagons.

Is phenolic film faced plywood structural?

Phenolic bonded plywood is used for load-bearing but it is not necessarily structural. Non-structural plywood can also be used in the formwork. If you need specially structural plywood please indicate to our sales team.

Why finger joint core film faced plywood is so cheap? Where should I use it?

Finger joint core plywood is made from recycled plywood. It is not as strong as the full core poplar but much cheaper in price. It can be used 2-4 times. It is ideal for corners, walls and low budget projects.
