Important guidelines for using film faced shuttering plywood. The guarantee of plywood is valid on the following cateria.

1. Use circular saw.
2. Densified FFSP should not be dragged from distance.
3. Should not be thrown from height.
4. Should not be stored in flat surface to avoid bending of the sheet.
5. Always use drill machine to insert screw/nail.
6. Avoid extra nailing.
7. Cut edges of the ply should be coated with suitable sealant to get maximum use of ply.
8. Leave at least 4 inch space from edges to insert the nail.
9. Clean the surface of ply after use and stored in well ventilated area.
10. Surface should be coated with mould oil before use.
11. Don’t store plywood open in rain.
12. Cover plywood with tarpaulins when storing, to protect from sunlight.
