Formply – The Basics
Made from a high-density overlay of phenolic resin-impregnated paper bonded to plywood, formply timber sheets have a structural grading similar to structural plywood but have a higher-quality, smooth, attractive finish. The timber veneers are glued together using phenol formaldehyde resin. With their hardwearing Type A marine bond, formply timber sheets are designed to resist the effects of construction moisture. So if you’re a builder looking for a material that’s aesthetically pleasing, high-performance and able to withstand the rigours of your construction project, formply timber sheets are an excellent option to consider.
With their cross-laminated construction, formply timber sheets have a lower likelihood of expanding or contracting even after being exposed to rain and temperature fluctuations. This makes formply a great base for laying forms for large decks. Moreover, its smooth and attractive surface is durable and protects the front and back faces from all sorts of damage. Formply timber sheets are also versatile enough to be used on both steel and timber form frame structures. They are also lighter in weight compared to hardwood options and suit a wide range of frame spacings and concrete slab thicknesses, as well as surface tolerance.
Aside from being ideal for concrete formwork, the nearly limitless uses of formply timber sheets include bridge construction, cabinetry, furniture, shelving and making benchtops. Formply is so versatile and tough that it can be used for any construction need or application where structural strength and performance are key.
