Falcatta Lightweight Plywood inspections and QC checklists

Falcatta Plywood is a lightweight plywood (but not as light as Banova).

Typically the density profile of Falcatta is 350/400kg/m3 compared to Radiata Ply at around 600kg/m3.

Falcatta Plywood is not suitable for exterior applications and is used extensively in the Caravan/RV industry for kitchen cabinetry.

Faces are light in colour and relatively clean but in most applications the plywood is overlaid with other materials such as foils or laminate.

Note: 2745mm and 3660mm sheets are produced with scarf jointed faces.
