Film faced plywood for construction – Standards for measuring the Quality


Film Faced Plywood is a building material consisting of veneers (thin wood layers or plies) bonded with an adhesive. There are two types of plywood: softwood plywood and hardwood plywood. Generally, softwood plywood is made from Styrax, Hardwoods plywood generally made from acacia, eucalyptus, rubber,…

Standards for measuring the quality of film faced plywood for construction

1.Quality of glue

Glue has an important role to play in composing plywood, waterproof. Usually, manufacturers use WBP for film faced plywood. WBP is named for kinds of waterproof glue, such as phenolic, melamine,… To check the quality of film faced plywood, you can stay plywood samples in boiling water about 10 – 24 hours. The plywood reach quality, If the sample doesn’t applicable dispute.

2.Quality of core

Normally, Core includes grade A, B, C. A better core for a higher quality of plywood. Veneers from acacia, eucalyptus, and rubber, thanks to their tough mechanical strength, high weather resistance, warping, and low expansion, leading to stable quality, suitable for construction formwork. In addition, moisture in the core of the plywood is also an important factor in the quality of the plywood. The lower the moisture core, the better the quality of plywood.


The density of plywood also is an important evaluation criterion. Usually, the density of film faced plywood for construction is from 630 – 680 kgs/m3.
