Normally, Core includes: grade A, B, C. A better core for 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 formworks. 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 film layer on film-coated plywood is used to protect the surface of the board. In addition, the film layer also makes the surface glossy, limits scratches and increases aesthetics with two colors, brown and black, for different quality. Film before coating the board must be stored in cold storage. The most common type of film coating today is Dynea phenolic film.
The sheet of film gives the board a smooth, glossy, scratch resistant finish, suitable to be used in construction works.
