Overview

Formwork plywoods are tough, waterproof and scratch resistant. They are designed to offer an improved quality of finish and help achieve multiple re-uses in concrete formwork,

When pouring concrete if cared for properly between uses, the smooth and chemical-resistant surface of these plywood panels can allow them to be reused up to 200 times.

Phenolic film faced plywoods are also commonly used in the manufacture of furniture.

Smooth phenolic film faced plywoods are 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 are 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.

The panels are most often stocked in dark brown, but are often also held in black, light grey and dark grey. Other colours (e.g. blue, green, red, yellow) are available to special order - most often in single pallet quantities per item. Also available single-sided as the reverse of our range of phenolic slip-resistant plywoods

Thus these panels have been used extensively in the manufacture of smooth faced furniture or sports rebound boards, although their use as rebound boards has all but disappeared, to be superseded in most cases by polypropylene faced birch plywood due to their better UV-stability performance.

  • Special order item in single/multi-pallet quantities
  • Thickness = 12mm, 15, 18mm, 21mm, 24mm
  • Standard panel sizes = 1200 / 1250 / 1350 / 1500 x 2440 / 2700 / 3000mm

  • Resilient surface suitable for multi-use concrete pours

  • Colour of surface coating at mills's option

These plywoods are used to pour high quality concrete formwork and more than 200 reuses can be achieved with this product if stored & handled correctly.

The surface coating (approx. 1.5mm) offers easier separation from the concrete & easier cleaning, producing a uniform concrete surface colour & quality for every application. The panels are less sensitive to face damage and any scratches do not leave visible marks on the finished concrete.

NB: The colour of the surface coating is at the mill's option and cannot be specified.
