This resilient laminated plywood is constructed using a strong birch plywood core with a multilayer polypropylene coating & lacquer on one or both faces. This covering is bonded to the core using an elastic two component glue meeting EN 204 D4 for exterior applications.

The hard-wearing laminate coating is available in a range of colours and designs and is UV resistant for good colour fastness (rated 6-7 according to DIN 54004), with some decors supplied without lacquered surface coating. Any combination of the RAL Classic colours below can be applied to the surface.
