Veneered Panels

A veneered panel is not only unique, it’s natural too.

 

Veneered panels consist of a support panel with two natural or reconstructed veneer faces. It’s real wood carefully selected by specialists on the basis of the best craftsman’s practices.

How to Design a Veneered Panel to Meet the Customer's Requirements

imageedit_1_3943513727.png

THE DESIGN PHASES

  1. Choosing the wood

  2. Deciding which slicing technique to use for the veneer

  3. Deciding which jointing technique to use for the veneer

  4. Choosing the quality of the front and rear veneers

  5. Choosing the support on which to bond the veneer

  6. Choosing the surface treatment and finish (optional)

Wood Types

Thickness

The standard veneer thickness is 0.6 mm. 

Reconstructed Veneer

Several thin rotary cut sheets of colored wood are bonded together into a block, which is then slice cut into veneer. The wood layers simulate the structure of the tree trunk, recreating the grain and the “mottled” effect of natural veneer, while guaranteeing the complete uniformity of different production batches.

Types of Veneer

Bespoke

A type of veneer made of only the finest woods, one-of-a-kind, where every feature is a distinctive mark. Customers can use our dedicated, bespoke consulting service to select unique woods for the most original designs, letting the tree tell its story.

Design

These veneers are obtained from uniform logs of the highest quality. The veneers are arranged in regular sequences to produce a striking visual and aesthetic effect. The panels are also numbered to be used in a sequence, so there is a uniform and continuous progression in the design from one panel to the next.

Features:

  • Regular, well-defined grain

  • Uniform color, free of variations and anomalies

  • Small, almost invisible natural variations are tolerated as these are typically found in these specific woods

  • Decorative veneer

Classic

Standard version, suitable for most circumstances and applications. Some natural features of the wood can be seen on the veneer, without having a negative effect on the final aesthetic result. This quality is characterized by the regular sequence of the veneers, although to a lesser extent than with the Design veneers.

Features:

  • Less marked grain

  • Slight color variations

  • With fewer smaller knots, the natural look of the product is guaranteed

  • Wide range of applications

Commercial

This veneer quality is used for panels characterized by the natural, irregular grain, typically found in wood. These panels are very low cost.

Features:

  • Natural, irregular grain

  • Decoloration and mineral veining also available

  • Evident knots are tolerated as long as they are healthy

  • Suitable for low-cost applications

Rear/Counterbalancing

In all applications that don’t require any special characteristic aesthetic finish for the second veneer face, we can counterbalance the panel by applying sliced cut veneers or rotary cut veneers of a variable quality to the rear of the panel, not defined by any standard.

Slicing Technique

First the log is sliced into two or more parts. It’s then cut into slices of varying thickness to meet specific requirements.

Bonding

Standard jointing technique. Glue is applied on the thickness of the veneer using system of the latest generation, to obtain a perfect bond.

Hot-Melt String

The veneer is jointed using hot-melt string applied in a zig-zag layout with an electric jointing gun. This technique is used for rough, fibrous woods and for all particularly complex or bespoke jointing designs (e.g. Herringbone matched, Diamond matched, Diagonal matched, Strut matching, Cross matched, etc.)

Supports

Once the best veneer has been created to suit the customer’s requirements, it’s time to choose the type of panel to bond it to.

Poplar Plywood

Panel made entirely of crossed Poplar plies. These panels are available in various plies and outer face layouts. Plywood panels are very strong and long-lasting.

Blockboard

Panel with a poplar or fir core, with 1 or 2 poplar plies on each side depending on the chosen ply layout. These panels are very strong and long-lasting and can be drilled also to deep depths.

Engineered Veneer Core (EVC)

EVC is the first panel of its kind. This is an engineered panel made of virgin poplar wood. The core consists of oriented strands, and the faces are made of wood microparticles. This formaldehyde-free panel is moisture-proof. The EVC panel is great value for money.

Supporti-03-2_edited.png

High Density Fiberboard (HDF)

High-density fiberboard panel. This panel is characterized by a uniform thickness so it can also be drilled to deep depths.

Chipboard

Unfinished panel made of wood chips of different sizes obtained from various sources. Chipboard panels are low cost solutions.

Surface Treatments and Finishes

UV Coating

A UV coating is a protective surface treatment that brings out the natural wood grain. Bonzano uses the latest acrylic UV, low COV emission, anti-yellowing paint, with a 100% dry residue.

Other Treatments

  • Brushing: process by which the wood pore is opened to obtain a “solid wood” effect.

  • Sawing: used to obtain a “sawn plank” effect.

  • Over-coat: mineral-based pigments can be applied to the veneered panel before it is painted to produce bespoke colors, guarantee more uniform production batches, and reduce photodegradation.

  • Clear protective film: applied on request to protect the painted panels during shipment and assembly.

Dimensional Limits of The Painting Systems: 

  • Thickness 45 mm

  • Dimensions 3050x1250mm
