Film Faced Plywood


Film Faced Birch Plywood is a high-quality exterior birch plywood with special coating of resin-treated paper that turns into protective film during production. Comes with smooth or mesh surface. Edges are sealed with water-dispersible acrylic paint. This type of plywood is widely used in the construction industry and vehicle production. The film faced birch plywood is easy to mount and work with. The film faced plywood is a material of extreme significance for monolith building and construction, furniture manufacturing and playground equipping. It is light in weight and offers high resistance to corrosion. The film faced plywood can be easily cut & cleaned and hence it is easy to maintain. It can be used in high temperature and high moisture conditions.
