Using the most current Concrete Form MDO technology, our Crown 48 employs a proven Melamine MDO.  This high resin content Melamine MDO is more alkaline resistant than traditional phenolic resin based concrete form MDO providing a more durable panel for your job site requirements.

Features & Benefits

Crown 48 is constructed with high strength Douglas fir veneer.  The high resin content Melamine MDO is applied in a one-step process.  All adhesives used are fully waterproof phenolic resins that meet CSA exterior glue bond standards.

Available in 1220 x 2440 mm and 610 x 2440 mm in 17.5mm thickness

  • CSA Certified Panel
    All of our products are built to meet CSA O121 for Douglas Fir Plywood and undergo rigorous inspection and testing by our Quality Control team.

  • Optional Hardwood Faces
    Crown 48 panels are also available with hardwood faces and backs, providing a smoother pouring face and more durable panel than our softwood options.

  • Melamine MDO
    Crown 48 is manufactured with a special Melamine MDO which stands up to high-alkaline concrete mixes better than traditional phenolic based concrete form MDO.

  • Two Piece Inner Plies
    Our two piece, Douglas fir inner ply construction method is engineered to provide a more solid panel that can better stand up to job site wear and tear.

  • Multi-Layer Edge Protection
    For additional protection against moisture, all Crown 48 panels are edge puttied and then thoroughly coated with a dark blue, aluminized, resin-rich alkyd edge seal.

  • Factory-Applied Release Agent
    Crown 48 panels come factory coated with Nox-Crete Form Coating, a high quality, water-based, chemically active release agent.
