Other Proprietary Concrete Form Panel Types

Additional plywood grades specifically designed for concrete forming include special overlay panels and proprietary panels. These panels are designed to produce a smooth, uniform concrete surface. Some proprietary panels are made of Group 1 wood species only, and have thicker face and back veneers than those normally used. These provide greater parallel-to-face grain strength and stiffness for the panel. Faces may be specially treated or coated with a release agent. Check with the manufacturer for design specifications and surface treatment recommendations.
