Characteristics of overlay
Surface with an overlay is smooth, glossy and hard. It resists abrasion, it is weather and moisture proof and resists commonly used chemicals, dilute acids and alkalis. The surface is easy to clean with water or steam. Abrasion resistance according to the Taber test (EN 438-2): depends on applied film, conditions of product storage, thickness of film (see below) a.o.
Overlaid plywood's wear resistance may be superior to 10'000.
Phenol films: dark brown (120, 130 (wear resistant) and 220g/m2), light brown (120g/m2), yellow non - transparent (167g/m2), green (120g/m2), black (120g/m2), red (220g/m2), honey (120g/m2), UV resistant films: opal white (174g/m2), grey (174g/m2), blue (200g/m2).
Under transparent films BB grade veneer can be applied.
