Birch plywood Riga Prime

Riga Prime

Birch plywood (Riga Ply or Riga Paint) overlaid with a primer on one or both faces, thus plywood surface is ready to be painted. It facilitates painting operations and requires less paint. Suitable for exterior or interior application painted as well as unpainted.


Environmentally friendly, easy and fast to paint, less consumption of paint, it does not require priming. The primer coating protects the plywood surface against moisture and burning (scorching) when laser-cutting tools are used.


Riga Prime can be used as painted as well as unpainted for floors, walls, and ceilings, as packing material and in the manufacture of components of various sizes and shapes.
