Ecoply® Formrite® Formply
Formrite® is a high quality plywood produced predominantly from graded Pinus radiata. Overlaid with a hard durable resin-impregnated paper, it has a smooth finish, and its hard phenolic surface and outer veneers make it both reusable and durable. Glued with a phenol formaldehyde resin A-Type Marine bond, Formrite can withstand the rigours of construction moisture and with the addition of a cross-laminate construction it is also less likely to expand or contract when exposed to rain and temperature changes, making it an effective formply solution.
