Black Film Faced Plywood
Film faced plywood, also known as film formwork plywood, is as a specialized type of plywood in construction. In recent years, it has been more and more favored by many because it helps to reduce construction time, the number of workers and the cost of materials. Although found out after other formworks such as aluminum, steel and plastic formwork, film faced plywood still has a high rank in the market thanks to its strength.To get more news about commercial plywood

First of all, the raw material (wood log) will be selected and stored at our factory/workshop. The raw material standards can differ between types of wood, but normally we choose the logs of maximum 1.3m in length and minimum 10cm in diameter.
Then, we use a veneer lathe to peel the logs, in which way the wood is compressed with a nose bar while the veneer knife cuts the blocks into veneers that are typically 1.7mm thick. The first bit of the veneer which includes lumber bark shall be cut off. The veneer pieces are then clipped to a usable width, typically 640m or as request, for shrinkage and trim.
The veneers are then dried to a certain moisture content of below 12%. Thanks to the gifted tropical weather, our veneers are normally dried naturally under the sun for 1 or 2 days until their moisture reaches the right level. However, during the rain season, we use driers/kilns to dry our veneers quicker (1.5 days) and guarantee the right moisture content for our final goods.
When the veneers have been dried, checked and divided into different quality types, they will go through a glue spreading machine so a specific kind glue can be covered all over the veneers’ surface.
Our workers now will check the plywood core to see if veneers are properly glued and surface is perfectly flat, they will handle the defects before putting the core into the hot press machine.
The laid-up assembly of veneers then is sent to a hot press in which it is consolidated under heat and pressure. Hot pressing has two main objectives: (1) to press the glue into a thin layer over each sheet of veneer; and (2) to activate the thermosetting resins. The time and temperature vary depending on the wood, resin types and customers’ requests.
After the hot pressing is completed, the workers will handle the surface of the board, cut the edges of the boards, handle the edges of the boards, sanding the surface of the boards 2 to 3 times.
The problem with mass production is that you cannot check every single product manufactured or sold. However, the problem will be solved if you can control the producing process.
As you may recognize above, our company has deep knowledge of both our products and the production process. However, it is only the tip of the iceberg. We have the ability to control our product quality through good and durable machinery, standardized process, well-trained workers and dedicated quality control teams.
We are also very proud to have been able to consult for some of our suppliers and business partners about more effective techniques as well as management experience, helping them partly reduce their production and management costs.
