Phenolic Baltic Birch Plywood


What is phenolic? Phenolic plywood has a phenol film which sandwiches baltic birch plywood. The phenol film is bonded to the plywood with a waterproof phenol resin adhesive. 

Overlays come in multiple colors, but our overlaying phenol film color is black. The surface of the phenolic plywood is smooth and glossy. Between the film overlays is the stacked, layered look characteristic of baltic birch plywood. 

The most distinctive feature of Baltic birch is that the edges are attractive, uniform stripes of hardwood veneer, usually alternating light and dark bands. That edge is largely free of voids. 

Phenolic Plywood is also known as Film Faced Plywood, Phenolic Faced Plywood, or Phenolic Covered Plywood.

Please note, the edge of a full 4'x8' sheet of material is black. Resulting cuts to your stock size may result in some edges showing natural grain color and/or black overlay color.

Phenolic Plywood is available in 1/2" (12mm) and 3/4" (18mm) thickness, including the phenol overlay.

What makes phenolic so great? It's one of the most stable, durable and hard surfaces available to work with. The phenolic overlay helps resist cracking, abrasions, and splitting.

With it's smooth, glossy, moisture resistant and easy to clean surface, Phenolic Plywood is also a great choice for countertops!
