The perfection of the materials creates the integrity of the structure, and each material contributes to a lasting construction. Film-faced plywood is one such material that is versatile in use and easily accessible on the market.
The first criterion that contractors pay a lot of attention to is the price, as plywood has a very reasonable price – cheaper than ordinary wood formwork and steel or aluminum formwork, so this type of board is favored and appreciated by contractors not only for its price but also in terms of quality.
Film-faced plywood helps to limit material loss.
Using film-coated formwork plywood will completely retain the poured concrete layer without flowing out like other types of formwork, such as steel. In addition, it forms a permanent, smooth, and extremely stable mold that can roll out immediately after placing the concrete without needing to be replastered once. It will help construction projects save time and reduce material costs.
Easy to transport
Due to its lightweight properties and good adhesion resistance, film-coated plywood will not stick to the surface of the board after the concreting process, and the board will be relatively light. Therefore, they are easy to disassemble and move more easily and safely.
Easy to construct
In civil engineering works, using film-faced plywood that can slide up and down along the column will reduce the molding time and accurately assemble the three sides of the formwork.
And the film coating on the plywood used for formwork makes them very easy to install at heights where conventional formwork would be complicated.
Film-faced plywood is durable over time.
It can be used 8-10 times, as proven through the experience of skilled workers as well as the calculations of designers. Because this formwork is made from processed wood planks, compared to natural wood formwork, it has overcome the phenomenon of warping and cracking.
The production process of film-faced plywood requires many stages, including up to 2 times of cold pressing and 2 times of hot pressing, along with the commonly used water-resistant glue, Melamine from 12% to 20%, so the quantity is high and much more reusable than regular wood.
Because they are made from many layers of peeled plywood (veneer) and especially with this type of board, thanks to the outermost layer of phenolic glue paper, also known as film, they have very good waterproofing ability.
Above are six reasons you need to pay attention before you choose formwork to pour concrete for your project. If you have a need to use this wood plank, please contact us immediately for the best advice and quote.
