Plywood was first invented for industrial manufacturing and home construction.
Then it was introduced to concrete forming.
In many cases, the film faced plywood can only be used once. That means a huge waste for the projects if premium quality plywood are used.
Even in some good projects, there will be corners which need film faced plywood cut into size. That piece of plywood can not be reused again. So the cheap price finger joint core plywood can have its market.
The finger joint core plywood has only one advantage, that it is the cheapest film faced plywood on the market.
Setbacks of finger-joint core
- Surface is not as good as full core plywood.
- Bending strength is weaker than standard core plywood.
