Fiberglass-reinforced-plastic (FRP) overlaid plywood is an engineered product consisting of APA trademarked plywood securely bonded between tough glass fiber-reinforced resin surfaces. The composite produces a strong yet lightweight panel. A thin nonporous surface finish provides color, weather ability and additional durability. Different surface finishes are available. Glass content and overall thickness of the overlay can be varied to suit the performance requirements and economies of a wide variety of end-use applications.
