Film Faced Plywood

Film faced plywood is also called plyform, form plywood, formwork plywood, etc. It is laminated plywood with two side films coated. The films of the form plywood are water proofed. It protects against moisture and weather impact on the plywood cores.
Wellmade manufactures all types of film faced plywood. You can find 9mm to 25mm thickness film faced platforms. While the film faced plywood sizes can be customized including 4’x8’(1220x2440mm), 3’x6’(914x1830mm), 2’x8’(610x1830mm), 1250x2500mm, etc.
According to the formwork plywood fabrication, there are phenolic resin and melamine resin film-faced plywood. Phenolic film faced plywood can be used for a long time in concrete construction. While Melamine film-faced plywood is at a cheaper price.
There are poplar plywood sheets, eucalyptus plywood sheets, and birch plywood sheet in film-faced plywood manufacturing. Among them, poplar plywood is the cheapest in cost, while birch plywood is high density (HDO) with great strengths, not easily reshaped. But the cost of birch film faced plywood is expensive.
In addition, you can find different colors for the film faced plywood sheets, including red, black, brown, etc. More than film faced plywood, Wellmade manufactures plastic-coated plywood too. Send us film-faced plywood requirements now to get a competitive price now.

Formwork Film Faced Plywood Types

Phenolic Film Faced Plywood

Phenolic film-faced plywood is manufactured with phenolic glues(resin) between the plywood and films. Phenolic film-faced plywood can use more times than melamine plywood.

Film-faced plywood is a type of laminated plywood with films coated at two sides. It is used for concrete form work and shuttering in construction. You can call it formwork plywood, scaffolding plywood, film face ply, film-coated plywood, concrete formwork plywood, shuttering plywood, construction plywood, etc.

Poplar, Eucalyptus Birch Film Faced Plywood

According to the facing ply wood type, there is birch film-faced plywood, poplar facing plywood, and eucalyptus facing plywood.

Poplar Film Faced Plywood

Poplar film-faced plywood is the cheapest type of formwork plywood among the above three different form plies.  The reason is that the poplar wood is lower cost and popular in the market.  In concrete forming, poplar film-faced plywood can take less weight compared to eucalyptus and birch film-faced plywood. Thus poplar film-faced plywood is commonly used in civil construction, and residential building shuttering.

Eucalyptus Film-Faced Plywood

Eucalyptus film-faced plywood would be the most valued type of formwork plywood. The plywood cost is higher than poplar-facing plywood. While it can take a higher weight in concrete construction. The reason is eucalyptus plywood is easier to get in the market and the cost is not as high as the birch plywood.

Eucalyptus film-faced plywoods are used not only in civil construction but also in bridge construction, highway construction, industrial and commercial concrete shuttering, etc.

Sometimes, eucalyptus and poplar mixed film-faced plywood are required.

Birch Film Faced Plywood

Birch film-faced plywood takes the heaviest weight in concrete shuttering. You can use the most times recycling in the construction.

Birch plywood is a type of high-class film-faced plywood.  The birch plies raw material supplier is not as popular as poplar and eucalyptus. Thus the price of birch film-faced plywood is very expensive.

Facing films for birch form plywood are always brown type with phenolic resin. Some top-quality birch film-faced plywood is manufactured by Finland-imported phenol films.

Birch concrete form plies are always required by the formwork companies who want the formwork plywood uses more times in recycling construction and rental business. They are also used in heavy-duty concrete shuttering like bridges, high way construction.

Plastic Faced Plywood

Plastic-faced plywood can use more times than normal film-faced plywood in the construction.  The PP plastic films are waterproof. It is also high resistance.

The weight of plastic-faced plywood is very light. It can take more weight too. Thus plastic-faced plywood becomes more and more popular in construction form works nowadays.

You can choose different colors for the plastic-coated plywood. Include yellow, green, blue, white, red, etc.

What Film-Faced Plywood  Used For In Construction

Film-faced plywood is supported by scaffolding shoring and formwork beams in construction. You can pour the concrete into the form works assembled with film-faced plywood surfaces.

You can easily cut the film-faced plywood into the required sizes at the construction project site.

Film-faced plywood is also a panel for steel ply formwork systems and aluminum plywood formwork systems.  Steel ply formwork systems like Euro Form and GW 120 large panel formwork system.

Film Faced Plywood Glue(Resins)

In facing plywood laminated, resin types are an important factor related to the film-faced plywood quality and life.

Wellmade has three types of glues for your film-faced plywood. Include melamine glue, phenolic glue, and imported Finland phenolic glue.

Melamine Film Faced Plywood

Melamine glue is the cheapest glue among three different resins. Melamine film-faced plywood is also called melamine plywood boards. You can find 12mm black melamine board,14mm black melamine boards, and other melamine film face plywood thick like 18mm, 15mm, 20mm, 21mm, 22mm etc.

Phenolic glued film faced plywood is also called phenol board formwork. In phenol film-faced plywood manufacturing, we use phenolic films to coated at both sides of the scaffold plywood. Phenolic film faced plywood is waterproofed. It can be used more times than the melamine facing plywood.

When the film-faced plywood is laminated with Finland imported phenolic films and finland resins, the plywood is also named finform plywood or finn form plywood. Finform plywood is the most durable film faced plywood, which is 5-10 times more in usage than the melamine formwork plywood. That is why finfilm plywood is the best water-resistant quality film faced plywood in formwork concrete construction.

Film Faced Plywood Facing Filmes

Wellmade supplies you with different types of facing films for your film faced plywood sheets.

According to the color, you can find black film faced plywood and brown and red film-faced plywood.

According to the film types, there are paper films, plastic films, PVC films, etc.

According to the film glue types, there are fin films, phenol films, and mel films. Fin film-faced plywoods are high reusable formwork plywood.

For birch ply wood film faced plywood, brown color phenolic films and fin films are always used.

HDO Film Faced Plywood

HDO film Faced plywood is a type of high-density overlay shuttering plywood. The HDO Film faced plywood is more resistant than MDO or LDO film-faced plywood.

In HDO film-faced plywood manufacturing, Wellmade uses bamboo sheets.  Sometimes, we use plastic films coated on both sides. This ensures the maximum use time in the concrete formwork construction.

According to the construction site feedback, Wellmade HDO film-faced plywood can use 50-80 times in the steel ply panel and aluminum ply panel formwork system.
