I doubt it would be solid phenolic due to cost.

Phenolic plywood is somewhat of a misnomer as it should more realistically be called “phenolic faced plywood” or “phenolic covered plywood.” The veneer core plywood itself isn’t made of phenolic; it’s generally made of birch. What makes it “phenolic” is that both surface veneers are soaked in phenolic resin before attaching them to the plywood
That was my first thought also, I'm guessing it's made out of something like concrete form board material.
A local supplier near me carries a product called Xtra Ply PSF that's used in the concrete industry for forms.

laminate it with Laminex.
Haven't heard of Laminex here in the USA, it may be an Australia brand?

I've thought about using the Xrta Ply that has the phenolic coating on both sides, but the last time I checked on the price of a 4' X 8' sheet (only way it's sold) it was around $200. That was several years ago, so I imagine it's much higher now.
