Veneer Processing at Labos
At Labos, over 50 species of natural wood and engineered veneers are available, while also ensuring the ability to deliver any other veneer species accordingly. All our veneer range is offered in most popular slicing options; crown, quarter and rift cut.
We ensure our clients have endless choices as our company can achieve any technique of veneer splicing and modelling across all our quality categories. Additionally, several forms of surface textures, such as sanding, brushing, scratching and rough cut are also available to fulfill any innovative idea and all expectations of our clients.
Veneer Species Selection
The veneering process begins with the veneer selection itself. In this phase, we ensure all the bundles will match in harmony according to their log origin and are then carefully selected to form uniform colour and shape. This allows the formation of beautiful and seamless natural wood patterns for any appropriate panel dimension.
Let's explore what species Labos has to offer!
Three most popular slicing techniques which are available in any of our veneer species for your pleasure to create distinctive unique patterns.
This slicing technique is made perpendicular to the annual growth rings of the log. As a result, creating a straight grain effect.
A straight, thinner grain effect similar to true quarter cut veneer most commonly used in larger homogeneous applications.
It is achieved by slicing parallel to the center of the log, a "crown effect” is formed by the innermost growth rings. This crown effect enriches the natural wood character.
Our splicing techniques serve our clients’ preferences best when it exposes all the possible variations and combinations for the most appropriate outcome.
Reverse Slip Match
At a glance, here is how we like to categorise our quality classification.
This grade applies to unique veneer bundles. They completely stand out for their absolute perfection and rarity. When applied, this collection will upgrade the project due to its outstanding appearance and pattern continuation.
This grade applies to clear balanced colour and uniform structure. This grade has no defects such as knots, discoloration and flakes. Architectural quality will upgrade any idea seeking perfection in daily use spaces.
This grade applies to veneer bundles with less symmetry, minor colour variations anda few characterisstics that might not compromise the high quality appearance of the final end result. This grade consists of relatively uniform appearance and also adds a high value to any space.
This grade characterises the natural wood appearance with heavy colour nuances and structure variations. Some knots on the panel are also common factor in this category. This quality class is supported in commercial spaces by its quality-price balance.
Offering various unique styles to the veneer texture.
The area is cleaned by light sanding as preparation for final sanding by the customer and the application of other treatments such as varnishes, oils, etc.
The brushing removes the soft parts of the wood. The hard areas remain. In this texture, structures, annual rings, knots and curly grain form a three-dimensional landscape.
This texture offers a wild and rough surface due to the presence of scratches. The scratches fit perfectly to those final uses where the presence of natural wood and raw surfaces are required.
The rough texture of the wood becomes visible and touchable on fine surfaces. Ideal for individual further processing. Abrasive sponges or brushes leave behind traces, enhance the texture and underline the character of the wood.
