HDO High Density Overlay
Chesapeake Plywood provides the highest quality HDO High Density Overlay panels for your wholesale needs. HDO High Density Overlay adds stability, repels foreign substances from the surface, and provides a smoother and more durable forming surface. The phenolic resins used in overlay production HDO are hard and resist moisture, chemicals, and abrasion. HDO High Density Overlay is often utilized where the smoothest possible concrete finish and maximum number of reuses is desired.
HDO High Density Overlay has a resin content of 52 to 58 percent and appears smoother to the touch than does MDO. Hotels, high rise office buildings, museums, power plants, civil projects, and large-scale residential projects are common applications for HDO concrete forming panels. Panels are manufactured as one-sided or two-sided panels varying in thickness. Contractors can expect 25-50 reuses depending on the application, proper handling, care, and treatment with an appropriate release agent.
HDO High Density Overlay impart a nearly polished concrete surface. Both sides of HDO are moisture resistant but cannot always be used to form concrete with equal effectiveness unless specifically made for that purpose.
