Riga Tex is a high wear product composed of birch plywood (Riga Ply) overlaid with a phenol film or with an UV resistant film on both the sides. The wear side has a rough wire mesh pattern (W). The reverse is normally smooth (F), although it can have a wire mesh pattern too (gradeW/W). Riga Tex rough wire mesh overlay withstands hard wear and so can be used for various floor-panelling purposes. Applications include vehicle floors, pedestrian bridges, storage and factory floors, storage shelves, loading platforms and ship decks. The wire mesh surface also has anti-slip properties with the surface being weather- and water-proof and also resistant to commonly used chemicals.
