How Construction Plywood can reduce building costs?

Stable price

Film faced plywood is reasonably priced, adaptable, and effective for many projects. It is a cost-effective solution to other materials like iron and steel,…

Convenient transportation

It is lighter than certain other types of formwork, which reduces the need for shipping time, effort, and labor. Giving the superior option generally resulted in significant cost savings.

ADX operates a engineered wood manufacturer in Quang Binh, in the middle of Vietnam, and a warehouse in Cu Chi, Ho Chi Minh City. It is convenient to supply fast and promptly for both domestic and international projects as a result. 

Simple to use

The film layer smooth on the surface of plywood waterproof offers good anti-stick qualities.

Highly reusable

Plywood waterproof is tested at ADX during the manufacturing process to withstand 72 hours of boiling. As a result, it offers characteristics such as a strong structure, minimal deformation, and strong water and heat resistance. Thanks to that, it can gain multiple reuses and popularity among builders today.

Reduce wastage

In addition to the above advantages, using film-coated plank also helps limit cement leaking out during the pouring process. Thanks to its size and flatness, this sort or engineered wood when assembled forms a closed, fixed mold. This ensures that the concrete does not flow out and maintains the best quality for the project.
