Smooth Phenolic Film Both Sides Birch Plywood
FSC® or PEFC Certified

Prefinished, smooth phenolic film-faced birch plywood is economical, yet is an extremely hardwearing plywood that is specified for many demanding interior and exterior applications.

  • Latvian Birch Plywood overlaid on both sides with a smooth phenolic film.

  • Edges are sealed at the mill to prevent moisture ingress (suitable for outdoor use*).

  • Wide range of thicknesses available from stock at ATP and James Latham depots.

* Provided the design, detailing, installation and edge sealing are appropriate.

Dark Brown (RAL 8017) water-based acrylate edge sealing paint is available from stock. 

Note!  If phenolic film-faced birch plywood is used in humid or exterior applications – all faces and edges must be sealed with the appropriate paint or finish to prevent moisture ingress.
