Flameshield Poplar Plywood
Description

A poplar plywood panel modified through an innovative ply-to-ply process that gives it exceptional flame retardant properties. Because each ply veneer of the Flameshield Poplar is soaked in a fire retardant, rather than having a treatment painted on, it can be sanded or machined without losing any of its fire-protection qualities.

Cores and faces made of poplar from controlled and sustainable European plantations. A lightweight, quality surface, which is easy-to-machine and easy-to-transport.
