What Is Film-Faced Plywood?

What is the Fim-faced plywood?

The face of film-coated plywood is a layer of phenolic glued paper with excellent waterproofing and scratch-resistant properties.

Film-faced plywood has a wide range of uses in construction, interior and exterior design, and the marine industry. The film-faced plywood consists of a core made of several thin planks that are bonded together using WBP waterproof glue under high pressure. Moreover, a film layer is applied to the surface of the plywood to improve its durability and water-resistant properties.

What are the characteristics of film-faced plywood?

Film-faced plywood is often used in construction due to its superior features compared to other materials.

  • Low deformation, retains stable shape after long periods of use: Film-coated plywood is composed of multiple thin layers of veneer that are glued together using a specialized adhesive. This enhances the board’s bonding ability and creates a wood core that has excellent load-bearing capacity. Typically, film-coated boards have an odd number of veneer layers, such as 3, 5, 7,…, with a central layer that helps balance the force. This type of wood is widely used for concrete molds in high-rise buildings and for lining container floors because it is less prone to shrinkage and warping over extended periods of use.
  • Water- resistance, and heat- resistance in harsh environments:  The process of creating movie plywood necessitates the application of Waterproof BWP adhesive to guarantee the board’s high water resistance. At AMC Vietnam, we put our Film Faced Plywood through a 72-hour boiling test to verify its non-delamination. Moreover, we sustain the board’s moisture level at a perfect 12%. Consequently, our formwork can endure severe conditions without being affected by fungus or water-related harm.
  • Reasonable cost, high reusability: Film-coated boards can be used to achieve sealed surfaces during formwork construction. This prevents loss of concrete due to cement flow and ensures a flat concrete surface when the formwork is removed. The use of a film layer on plywood products eliminates the need for additional treatment and saves construction time. Customers have provided positive feedback to AMC Vietnam, stating that their film-coated plywood products can be reused up to 20 times. This enables contractors and investors to optimize costs while maintaining project quality.
  • Easy to construct: When considering construction and installation, plywood and film-coated plywood are frequently an excellent option because they work well with machinery and offer strong screw adhesion. Moreover, their lighter weight compared to materials such as steel or natural wood makes formwork transportation easier and saves time during construction.
  • Safe for health and environmentally friendly: At AMC, our top priority is the well-being of individuals in the production of industrial plywood. To ensure this, we implement a strict manufacturing process that complies with the CARB P2 and TSCA Title VI regulations. These guidelines are designed to govern the release of Formaldehyde, which can pose a threat to both human health and the environment.
    Our film-coated plywood and formwork production is committed to using adhesives that meet E0 standards, which guarantees that the emissions are less than 0.07 ppm and completely safe for human health. Furthermore, our raw wood sources are derived from licensed planted forests, which greatly reduces the ecological impact. By adopting this approach, AMC Vietnam ensures the production of high-quality, environmentally friendly film-coated boards that meet human health standards perfectly.
Applications of Film-faced plywood:
  • The construction industry frequently utilizes film-coated formwork plywood, an industrial wood renowned for its robustness and lightweight structure, capable of withstanding mold, termites, and screws. This dependable material is a popular choice for construction projects as it can be reused repeatedly, thereby reducing both material and labor costs for contractors. It is widely used to create molds for pouring columns, beams, and other concrete structures.
  • The maritime sector necessitates a particular category of industrial wood that can endure water and retain a consistent form. Film-faced plywood is a dependable alternative for this domain, as it has undergone a 72-hour immersion test in boiling water without experiencing peeling or delamination. It is widely utilized in ship construction and container flooring on account of its imperviousness to water.
  • Film-coated plywood is a widely utilized material in outdoor projects. It offers numerous advantages, mainly for locations with high humidity levels and a requirement for sturdy load-bearing ability. This makes it an excellent choice for outdoor furniture, garage flooring, warehouses, and other similar applications that require sustainability and load-bearing severe capacity.
