Bamboo Veneers  

Bamboo veneer is an innovative and elegant design solution for walls, ceilings, furniture, cabinets, doors or any surface - turning any object into a bamboo object.

The thin (0.6mm) sheets can be pressed onto any core panel, enabling you, for example, to create bamboo furniture using chipboard or MDF as core.

Bamboo veneer is manufactured from blocks laminated with water-proof adhesive and bamboo strips. The blocks are first laminated, then conditioned and soaked for two weeks before being sliced into veneer sheets.

Since bamboo veneer is very fragile during handling (tears easily), it is supplied with a strong fleece backing. This backing is made of cellulose, which is very strong and can resist even the highest press temperatures.

Producing un-backed veneers is possible, but very fragile and hard to transport. This can result in a lower yield due to damaged material.

Bamboo veneer takes a stain, sealer and finish very well. Many finishes and adhesives suitable to the cabinet and furniture manufacturing industry have been used successfully with bamboo.
