Smooth Phenolic Film Faced Birch Plywood

Tough, functional birch plywood with smooth phenolic film on both sides. Phenolic film is impregnated with an oil based resin which acts as a natural weather proof barrier. Suitable for exterior applications.

Phenolic film may have some natural visual imperfections, so it is best to check the suitability against the application if there is any aesthetic consideration. Colour may change over time when exposed to sunlight and the elements. Offered with full environmental certification.

Please note: this product has an exterior glue line. The core itself is perishable and if exposed without protection, it will be subject to degradation from the elements. This product has a weather proof coating to both faces which will protect the core. Additionally, the edges are painted in a machining acrylic based paint, which also acts as protection to the core. It is however the responsibility of the installer to add extra paint to any exposed edges or where there is the possibility of standing water remaining on any edge for extended periods. It is also imperative that any cutting, routing or drilling to the board is sufficiently re-painted. It is the responsibility of the installer to avoid any board failure by working strictly to the above guidelines. Ongoing inspection and maintenance will be required to apply additional protection where required.
