AK GROUP’S APPLE SHUTTERING PLYWOOD

The AK film-faced shuttering plywood is a product made for high-end construction use. We are a major shuttering plywood manufacturer in India, using select hardwood species with Phenol Formaldehyde resin (BWP grade) in a high-pressure hot press. This plywood can withstand the corrosive actions of cement, water, and sunlight as well as the distortion that occurs under exterior weather.

Due to its high reliability, film-face plywood is used in a whole host of applications. Widely found in construction projects, the vehicle industry, and other exterior constructions, the demand for shuttering plywood remains high. It is also used for shuttering purposes, especially with surface films. Add to that its improved resistance to abrasion, swelling, shrinkage, moisture penetration, chemicals, insects, fungi, and borers, no surprise it has found many applications.
There are 3 variants according to the shuttering plywood size:
  1. 18mm – 50kgs
  2. 12mm – 34kgs
  3. 12mm – 30kgs

    FAQ

    Which plywood is best for shuttering?

    The 12mm First Grade Ply is one of the best shuttering plywoods.

    What is shuttering plywood?

    Shuttering Plywood is a highly densified plywood with a smooth film coating on both sides of the face.

    Is shuttering plywood waterproof?

    While it is not waterproof shuttering plywood, it is certainly water-resistant because of the resin’s repellent properties.

    What is the size of shuttering plywood?
