Product Description

pg-pb-veneer-projects.jpgYes, this is real wood! Each is made from sequential sheets of wood veneer selected for outstanding character and figure. These veneers are then permanently bonded to a resin-saturated paper backing which allows maximum flexibility. From architectural woodwork for office and residential furniture to store fixtures, kitchen cabinets, automotive dashboards, high-end stereo speakers, and more, no other veneer has such as wide range of uses. Nothing compares to the natural elegance of our paper-backed veneers.

Staining & Finishing
Since this paper-backed veneer is a real wood product, it can be stained/dyed easily and requires no special top-coats or finishes. Aniline dyes, oil and water based stains, Transtints, polyurethane, lacquer, conversion varnish, shellac, and tung oil are all compatible with our paper-backed veneers.

Matching Species Edge Banding
To complete your veneered panel, we offer a wide array of real wood edge banding to match many of our paper-backed veneer species. Pre-glued edge banding is in stock and ready for immediate shipment. These rolls are very easy to apply and are sold in small, wide, and standard sizes. Non-glued and pre-finished edge bandings are also in stock.

Adhesive & Tool Suggestions

  • We highly recommend Titan DX™ which will bond this veneer to plywood, MDF, and particle board.
  • These veneers can also be adhered in a vacuum press with Better Bond X-Press™ veneer glue.
  • Better Bond Heat Lock™ and Flex-Pro™ work quite well if a vacuum press is not available.
  • A pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) backing can be selected below. This "peel and stick" adhesive by 3M™ is applied at the factory and allows you to instantly bond the veneer to a project surface.
  • A scraper tool must be used to apply backed veneers with contact cement, Flex-Pro, or PSA backing.
  • The excess veneer on a completed panel can be trimmed with a razor blade or a veneer saw, but many users get the cleanest cut with a router and a down-cutting spiral bit.

The image shown for this product is a representation of the veneer you will receive in your order. This is a product of nature so there will be variation from what is shown in color, grain, and figure. We highly recommend reading this quick article about teak color.

When comparing our veneers to others, be sure to get the right grade for your project. Many sellers offer lower quality veneers at pricing that is comparable to ours. You have to decide if the project is worth a better veneer and if the seller offers the first-class customer support you deserve.

Backing Option:
The standard paper backing is 10 mil thick. This is the ideal combination of quality and price for most uses. A 20 mil backing is available using the option box above. This option is most often used on horizontal surfaces with less than perfectly smooth substrates. The face veneer is the same thickness regardless of the backing size.
Peel & Stick:

A pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) backing can be selected above. This "peel and stick" adhesive by 3M™ is applied at the factory and allows you to instantly bond the veneer to a project surface.

Veneer that includes this option is non-returnable.
This option adds 2 days of lead time.

Matching Option:

Select this option if you are ordering at least two sheets of this exact veneer and want each sheet to reasonably match the other in terms of color and grain. A matched "set" is generally limited to two sheets. There will be multiple sets for orders of more than 2 sheets. Large orders for matched sets may add 3 days to the lead times shown above.

A true sequence match option may also be available for this veneer. Please contact us for details.
