At 1/2 inch, Futura structural lightweight panels-with factory-applied Maxam Composite Overlay—are only half the weight of 3/4-inch structural rated plywood panels, while providing similar strength. The Futura advance composite core, with treated aluminum skins, eliminates water problems associated with wood panels, but they still can be worked like plywood forming products. MCO provides oil-free, multipour concrete forming and is easily cleaned. Maxam Industries Inc. 866-629-2688.
