New technology by Nicobond in the construction market. Plastic Ply also known as plastic plywood is a lightweight, enhanced-polymer material that combines the main benefits of wood materials like plywood, MDF, marine ply, and other types of wood with the thin, low weight and water resistance of plastic materials.

This innovative  product is one of the latest inventions in the construction industry by Nicobond and  currently used in a very wide range of applications, such as bathrooms, kitchens, retail shop fittings, hotels, restaurants and many other.

A few words about the more traditional building materials, plywood – as a manufactured wood is made from multiple layers of thin sheets – this is more prone to absorbs water and can swell. Even the waterproof plywood when cut to fit the ends will allow water to penetrate and cause damage. Compared with the plasticply sheets the plywood is much heavier and more difficult to work with or even to transport to site.

When compared to plywood sheet and other wood materials, PlasticPly has a variety of advantages which make this high-end material vastly superior. Not only is it lightweight and water-resistant, its excellent adhesion, flexibility and usability make it virtually indestructible, pretty much eliminating maintenance costs.
