Film plywood is a kind of veneer plywood covered with film , which is phenolic glue (or other glue)impregnated paper and is different from MDO or HDO.
Based on the color of film, Film plywood can be classified as brown Film plywood and black Film plywood . Brown film is much better than black film . Because brown film is phenolic impregnated paper while black film is melamine impregnated paper .
Film plywood is mainly used for construction . So Film plywood is also called shuttering Film plywood, concrete form, shuttering concrete form . Because of this end use, customers usually want WBP Film plywood , which is more suitable to be used as shuttering for big projects . However, some customers require MR Film plywood , which are to be used as shuttering for ordinary projects .
According to the differences of face/back, Film plywood can be divided into slip-side Film plywood and anti-slip Film plywood (i.e. wire-mesh Film plywood ). Film plywood (especially anti-slip Film plywood) can also be used as flooring materials .
Film plywood can be used for shelves and furniture, too .
Compared with ordinary wood face/back plywood, the quality of Film plywood is much better . The craftsmanship for Film plywood is much stricter than that for ordinary wood F/B plywood . So Film plywood is more expensive than plywood.
Painting film faced plywood (Formwork Plywood)
More and more companies want to build their own brands for film faced plywood (Formwork plywood). So some customers require to print their brand names or logos onto the film for their plywood (like the left picture).
A lot of imprinted brown film faced plywood have been exported to Europe and Middle East (Dubai, Saudi Arabia and so on) .
The common imprinted film in China is brown color . One of our customers asked me for imprinted black film , however which is not available .
The imprinted film of foreign brands , such as Dynea film, Stora-Enso film, are available . The imprinted film of Chinese brands are economical and cheaper . After China wood industry’s rapid growth for several years , the quality of Chinese brand film have become good , too .
If a customer want to order impainting film faced plywood, he should firstly advise his supplier of his brand name or logos to let his supplier order the imprinted film in advance. His supplier should order the imprinted film 10-30 days before production . The film factory should make a new mould to print the brand name/logos onto the film .
If the ordered quantity is less than 300CBM, the film factory will charge extra for the new mould for the imprinted film .
In plywood business , a lot of people sell / buy phenolic film faced plywood. But only a few people know the real meaning of the word "phenolic" . Thus, what is the real meaning of WBP phenolic ?
WBP phenolic stands for "Water Boiled Proof" . If you use phenolic glue for the plywood / film faced plywood, the panel will can be exposed to weather, water and moisture for a long period (some maybe permanently ) without delamination . Like the word of "MR", phenolic is not the name of a specific glue . phenolic is only a kind of property/feature of glue . If a glue has phenolic property, the glue will can be called phenolic glue .
As a simple method of test for phenolic film faced plywood, you can put the plywood samples into the boiling water . If the samples have not delaminated in boiling water for a long period, then we will can say the plywood samples have phenolic property and conclude that the samples are phenolic film faced plywood samples.
