Film Face Plywood

Base product is standard full birch veneer core with a phenolic resin infused paper heat pressed onto the surface. The result is a moisture resistant surface which is inseparable from the substrate.

Two basic versions are available

Film/Film (F/F)

Smooth on both sides, F/F was developed as a concrete forming panel. That remains its principal use, but it can be used in any application where strength, moisture resistance, and abration resistance is required.


  • trench boxes
  • animal enclosures
  • flooring
  • siding
  • among others…

Film/Wire (F/W)

Film/Wire is smooth on one side and textured on the other. It has the same strength and moisture resistance characteristics of F/F with the the added benefit of being non-slip.


  • pedestrian ramps
  • mezzanines
  • truck floors
  • loading docks
  • among others…

In both versions the edges are factory sealed with an acrlyic sealant to minimize moisture ingress. Colour is chestnut brown. The standard film weight is 120g/m2 but wear resistance can be increased with the addition a extra layers of film to one or both sides.

Standard panel sizes are 4 x 8, 5 x 8 and 5 x 10. In thicknesses from 6.5mm to 30mm.
