Film-faced plywood is constructed with a poplar core veneer and two sides coated with waterproof film that resists abrasion. The film is an adhesive impregnated paper, which is different from melamine paper overlay, PVC, MDO (MDO plywood) and HDO (HDO plywood). The black film coating protects the inside wood from moisture, water, and weather to extend the plywood’s service life. Film-faced plywood can be used in harsh and outdoor environments.
