Vitaliya Khoruzhaya |

Foot Birch Plywood is a plywood overlaid with a phenol (dark brown, black, green) or a UV resistant (grey) film on both sides. The wear face has a special surface pattern (WT). The reverse face usually is smooth (F).

Applicable for flooring, transport industry, storage and factory floors, storage shelves, loading platforms, pier surfaces, scaffoldings, playgrounds, and flight cases. In general, surfaces where high wear resistance, anti-slip properties and good visual appearance are required.

Plywood can be machined with woodworking tools: cutting, drilling, milling, jointing in length, tongue and groove (T&G), half laps, profiled edges etc.

Surface with high wear resistance, anti-slip properties, good visual appearance (decorative surface), weather- and water-proof, resists commonly used chemicals and easy-to-clean.

In addition, the product is environmentally friendly and hygienic.
