2440 x 1220 x 12mm Sheathing Plywood

Shuttering plywood, also known as formwork plywood, is a type of plywood that is mainly used in concrete construction. It is used to create the molds into which concrete is poured, and it plays a vital role in ensuring the quality and strength of the finished structure.

12mm Shuttering plywood is typically made by bonding 5 softwood veneers, such as pine, with a class 3 exterior glue.

Also known as Softwood Ply, Elliotis Ply and CDX Ply, shuttering plywood is ideal to use for making formwork for concrete structures. Sheathing plywood is also widely used for making site fencing and boarding up properties to help secure against vandalism. The perfect choice for most general renovation and building works.

Shuttering ply is available in a variety of thicknesses, but the most common thickness for concrete construction is 18mm

Shuttering plywood is typically used in conjunction with a release agent, such mould oil. The release agent helps to prevent the concrete from sticking to the plywood, making it easier to remove the plywood once the concrete has cured.

There are several benefits to using 12mm Shuttering Plywood in concrete construction:

• Water resistance: Shuttering plywood is water resistant, which is important for preventing the concrete from sticking to the plywood.
• Smooth surface: Softwood plywood has a smooth surface, which produces a smooth finish on the concrete.
• Cost-effectiveness: Formwork plywood is relatively inexpensive, making it a cost-effective option for concrete construction projects.
