LAMINATION

Veneer may be cold molded, vacuum pressed or hot pressed. Veneer and substrate must both have the same moisture content prior to laminating.

 

 

RADIUS APPLICATIONS

1/42” and 2-ply veneer are best used for a radius application when laminated to a kerfed or flexible substrate. 1/8” Traditional and Strand bamboo panels may also be considered for moderate radius applications

 

 

CUTTING AND TOOLING

Standard hardwood woodworking guidelines apply, carbide tipped tools recommended.

 

 

FASTENING

Pilot holes, pre-drilling, oversized slots for screw inserts, panel clips or other methods that allow for expansion and contraction are necessary for unrestrained applications and countertops.
