Nowadays the application range of veneer is very wide. Generally, the wood veneer on the market today includes natural veneer, technical wood veneer, dyed veneer, spliced veneer, non-woven veneer, and finger-jointed veneer. In additional to natural veneer, these other veneer are also called reconstituted veneer, man-made veneer, laminated veneer or eco-veneer. Each type of wood veneer have different feature, today we will take a brief to talk about it.
(1) Natural Veneer
Natural wood veneer that is obtained by peeling or slicing wood, in last post we talk about it: what is natural wood veneer? how it was made?
Compare with other type of veneer, it is original and natural. It has beautiful grain and colors are true to life.
Natural Veneer Advantage:
- Non-toxic and environment-friendly.
Qualified natural wood veneer is made of pure natural wood. The processing process is also a pure natural process. No harmful additives are added. For consumers who care about environmental protection, it is the preferred decorative material.
- It is beautiful, with natural wood texture and color.
Due to the use of natural wood, natural wood skin is naturally provided with wood grain texture, with well-proportioned and natural grain, beautiful and soft color, no need of extra processing, and very beautiful decoration.
- Good elasticity, can be freely matched and bent.
Natural wood veneer cannot be used after slicing, it goes through many working procedures, steaming and drying, not only disinfection and sterilization, but also increases the toughness of the veneer, which is more convenient for paving and decorating!
Natural veneer will bring the fragrance of wood to your home, beside it is also great decoration for your home, Bring you natural log style feeling.
Natural Veneer Disadvantage:
Natural veneer is often long and narrow, and its specifications and sizes are relatively small. If the wall is paved on a large area, you will not only take long time and effort, but also make the connection very difficult.
Although natural veneer is cheaper than wood, natural wood veneer is more expensive than technical veneer. The specific price is different, depends on the raw materials of natural wood veneer.
- Surface defects are difficult to repair.
Due to the use of natural raw materials, the appearance of natural wood veneer often has insect holes, stuttering, dead color, decay and other problems, these problems are not very easy to deal with!
- Need more time to take care of.
After all, natural wood veneer is still wood. It is still necessary to pay attention to temperature and humidity in normal maintenance, in order to prevent weather cracking or damp deterioration.
(2) Technical Wood Veneer
It refers to a new type of wood material with superior performance made by high-tech processing, reorganization and beautification of common wood based on bionics principle. Veneer made of technical wood are called technical wood veneer.
- Rich in color and variety
Technology veneer products can produce different colors and textures through computer design, with brighter color and luster, stronger stereoscopic impression of texture, and dynamic and dynamic patterns.
- High utilization rate of finished products
Technological veneer overcomes the natural defects of natural veneer, and the products have no natural defects such as wormholes, knots, color changes, etc. Because of the regularity and consistency of its texture, technical veneer products will not produce natural veneer products with different textures and colors due to different logs and batches.
- Great potential for product development
With the implementation of the national cutting ban and the natural forest protection policy, the precious tree species available are decreasing day by day, It makes the technology veneer products as a substitute for precious tree species decorative materials.
- Wide size of decorative breadth
Technological veneer overcomes the limitation of small diameter grade of natural veneer, It can be processed into different breadth sizes according to different needs.
Easy processing and anti-corrosion, moth proof, fireproof (flame retardant), moisture resistance, etc.
(3) Dyed wood veneer
EP is the abbreviation of English Excellent Panel, which means very beautiful and delicate wood board. It is a new decorative material made by coloring and defect treatment of natural wood using high-tech processing technology. It is commonly known as dyed wood in China. Wood veneer processed from dyed wood is called dyed wood veneer.
Characteristics of dyed wood Veneer:
EP is to dye natural wood veneer, so the original natural touch and texture of natural wood are retained.
EP eliminates natural defects such as wormholes and scabs that are inevitable in natural wood during processing, making the surface smoother and more comfortable. It is rich in color and luster, diversified in varieties and convenient to construct, and can achieve more realistic color effect only by varnish treatment.
- Green and Environmental Protection
EP not only carried out production inspection in strict accordance with the requirements of the national formaldehyde limit release standard in the processing process, but also avoided the consumption of increasingly scarce tree species resources in the use of raw materials, making it greener and more environmentally friendly.
(4) Splicing wood veneer
It is a veneer formed by splicing wood skins of the same variety, length and thickness together in a seamless way. Spliced wood veneer is a “finished” surface veneer material, which solves the defects of easy defect, low efficiency, large amount of repair and difficult unification of surface style caused by veneer. It makes it possible for the manufacturers of thick wood veneer to realize large-scale production.
(5) Non-woven wood veneer
It is a wood surface decoration material formed by compounding thinner wood skin and imported non-woven fabrics. Compared with the conventional wood veneer, the strength and thick feeling of the wood bark are enhanced. Wood veneer is not easy to burst, easy to construct, with similar performance to sticker wood veneer, and is the preferred material for enterprises to reduce costs and improve competitiveness.
(6) Finger-Jointed wood veneer
Wood veneer of the same variety with the same width and thickness specifications are processed by machines, and connected together in a finger-shaped splicing manner, thus becoming infinitely lengthenable finger-jointed wood veneer.
Finger-jointed wood veneer has small color difference, strong flexibility and is not easy to deform. It can take into account the advantages of various kinds of wood. The produced products are luxurious in appearance, rare and natural, which cannot be expressed by other materials such as paper and PVC. Finger-jointed wood veneer has become a necessary material for enterprises to improve efficiency, reduce costs and improve competitiveness.
