1. Definition of Veneer:
Veneer is a type of decorative surface that is applied onto industrial wood panels such as MDF, HDF or Finger Joint for use in furniture production. Veneer is a natural wood layer that is shaved off from natural wood. The veneer surface, after being pressed onto industrial wood panels, is also called veneer wood or veneer panels.
Around 4,000 years ago, because there was not much forest in their territory, the ancient Egyptians knew how to cut a log into thinner logs to make the most of the material.
The veneer industry began to be automated in the early 19th century. In 1806, a French engineer living in the UK, Marc Isambard Brunel, was awarded a patent for the invention of a veneer. In 1843, the first veneer factory was built in Germany.
Veneer began industrially producing worldwide in the mid-20th century.
First, the natural wood is impregnated and dried. After that, they are transferred to the boiling stage for about two days to remove the resin. Next, the logs are put into the machine and carried out in a slurry process. Finally, the wood after incubation will be transferred into the dryer for final drying.
– Veneer Surface will not only retain the beauty of natural wood but can also be grafted to create new and unique designs.
– Can be easily glued to many industrial wood such as particle board, MDF board or joinery.
– Meanwhile, compared with natural wood that cost is much more comfortable.
Veneer is often glued onto various types of industrial wood for use as furniture such as doors, cabinets, tables, partitions, beds, and so on.
