Film Faced Shuttering Plywoods


It can be used widely in the construction of bridges, ships, high rise buildings, water tanks, cooling towers etc.


Different types of shuttering ply are available depending on density viz. 24kg, 30kg, 34kg etc. Repetition possible upto 20 times. Greater the density, more would be the re-use value.


It is necessary to follow certain precautions to make the film face last longer.

1) Unload carefully.
2) Do not drag & drop from height.
3) Stack on a flat surface.
4) Clean both surfaces after use.
5) Apply mould oil after 3-4 uses.
6) Use sealant on cut edges.
7) Use minimum nails.
