Film Faced Shuttering Plywood

Egwood FFSP has an exceptionally hard abrasion and moisture-resistant surface specially engineered to provide the maximum number of reuses, resulting in a cost-efficient concrete -forming. Egwood FFSP protects the wood substrate from the rigors of site construction, including exposure to water and alkali solution. The Egwood FFSP surface also makes it easier to strip from concrete surfaces. This minimizes concrete build-up, physical damage and the need for repair.

Egwood FFSP is an extra strong concrete-forming that has an high density overlay. It is specifically engineered to provide the highest performance and the finest finish.

Egwood FFSP uniform surface provides the finest architectural finish. The high density minimizes the transfer of veneer texture (wood grain, patches, cracks or checks) to the concrete. The Egwood FFSP high resin content produces a uniform and glossy concrete appearance.

The above product is available in following variants:

Thickness Silver Gold Platinum
12mm 24kg 30kg 34kg
16mm 32kg 42kg 45kg
19mm 38kg 50kg 53kg


Standard Size ?8' x 4' ( 2440 mm x 1220 mm )

Thickness ?12mm, 15/16mm, 19mm

Plywood edge finish ?Edge voids are filled with a plastic compound developed specially for concrete forming pates. Edges are sealed with a solvent-based sealant.

Overlay ?Egwood FFSP are overlaid with a Brick Red-coloured phenolic resin-impregnated cellulose-fibre sheet bonded to the face of the plywood under high heat pressure, forming a hard, durable surface. Standard configurations are good 2 sides ( two working faces)

Abrasion Resistance ?The overlay provides a tough abrasion-resistant surface for multiple-use concrete forming and other rigorous applications.

Weatherability - The overlay withstands severe exposure without requiring additional finishing. The Brick Red color will darken under ultraviolet exposure.

Serviceability ?Egwood FFSP are designed for concrete-forming applications and with proper handling will give the maximum number of reuses. The overlay will not be impaired due to prolonged and continuous contact with wet cement.

Masking ?The overlay helps mask the irregularities of the wood substrate.

Concrete surface finish ?The overlay produces a consistent, smooth, glossy architectural grade concrete surface, eliminating sugaring and minimizing finishing requirements.

Durability ?The overlay resists scuffs and marks and is also suitable for industrial and agricultural applications such as shelves, storage racks, bins and worktables. It will not blister, peel, check, rust, rotor corrode.

Chemical Resistance ?The overlay withstands continuous contact with dilute acids, alkalis, organic chemicals and many neutral and acidic salts.

Machinability ?Egwood FFSP are ideally suited to special formworks requirements because of the ease with which they can be sawn, drilled and routed with ordinary hand tools. Veneer tearing and chip-out are minimized and tighter, cleaner and smoother joints are produced, helping further reduce concrete finishing costs. The use of high speed drills is recommended to produce the cleanest holes.


Storage ?/strong> store Egwood FFSP on a level, well drained location away from equipment traffic area, Use stickers to keep panels above ground and out of the mud and water (use three stickers under each bundle stack). Storage conditions must provide protection from rain and ground moisture. If plastic tarps are used, be aware that they may trap ground moisture unless they are arranged in such a way as to allow air circulation under the tarp. Protect from prolonged sunlight exposure to prevent degradation of the overlay.

Form fabrication ?/strong> Use good quality power tools (carbide-tipped saw blades are recommended). Reseal cut plywood edges with a solvent-based sealer or paint to prevent moisture absorption and minimizing swelling. Fasten plywood to forms using screws. Countersink the screws and fill when enhanced concrete surface appearance is desired. Fill the joints between panels with a suitable, tape of expanded caulk to prevent leakage of concrete at the joint.

Concrete placement ?/strong> Avoid concrete-forming practices that reduce the service life of the plywood. Use rubber-tipped vibrator only for consolidation in order to minimize plywood surface damage. Never, use vibrators for moving concrete horizontally within the formwork. Maintain rate of pour and slump consistent with the design of the form.

Plywood Cleaning ?/strong> Clean plywood after each use with wooden or plastic scrapers arid stiff brushes or brooms, repairs plywood surface damage with polyurethane, epoxy or polyester putties or patching material.

Form release agent treatment ?/strong> Egwood FFSP are not factory treated with a form release agent. However treating the plywood with a high quality release agent prior to their first use and each subsequent use is essential to facilitate from stripping, help achieve maximum performance and ensure reuse potential. Concrete mix can significantly affect the releasing material performance. While combination reactive/barrier release agents work best with concrete mixes that incorporate pozzolans such as fly ash, blast furnace slag and micro silica. Do not use other form-release agents that contain diesel fuel, mineral spirits or motor oil as they may soften and eventually degrade both the overlay and the plywood itself.
