Products / Veneer

The major products of the Company
are beech and oak veneer.
Veneer from other types of hardwood
possible to produce ordered.









Veneers Cut Methods

Crown cut:
The log is sliced along its length, resulting in a figured appearance.
Veneers Cut Methods
Quarter cut:
The log is cut along its length to form four separate 'quarter logs'. These are then sliced at 90 degrees to the growth rings to provide the sheets which give a striped appearance when assembled.
Veneers Cut Methods
Rotary cut:
The log is simply peeled to give a continuous veneer, generally used for constructional plywood. Veneer sheets cannot be matched except for general colour characteristics and their appearance is wild and flowery.

Sliced hardwood veneer

Aspects of the production of veneer are: radial and tangential. The tree has three main areas with different characteristics.
These three trends
- radial direction
- the tangential direction
- linear or longitudinal direction (the direction parallel to the longitudinal axis of the barrel)

Texture is determined by the method of veneer slicing. Various methods of slicing give a different visual effect. The same stem, sliced in different ways, give sheets of veneer quite different from each other.
The two most common texture veneer tangential and radial.
- Radial (sliced in the radial direction) It is obtained by planning at right angles to the annual rings of trees.

- Tangential (sliced in the tangential direction)
Obtained by planing the trunk parallel to the center to give the effect of the rings.

We offer high-quality sliced hardwood veneer directly from the veneer factories.

The produced veneer meets the requirements of GOST 2977-82 Ukrainian State Standard.





Species

The main species we offer are:

  1. white oak
  2. steamed and non-steamed beech
  3. sycamore
  4. cherry
  5. ash

We are ready to offer veneer from such hardwood species as maple, walnut, etc. on special order especially for you.

Veneer Quality and Applications

Veneer quality logs used gives the best veneer. Veneer is flat, uniform and clear from any defects. Color variations are minimal. Such veneer is ideal for interior furniture applications.
Different cutting methods are used to produce different visual effects. Logs of given species, cut by different methods will produce a variety of appearances.
Basically the following cutting methods are used:

  1. quartered slicing (also known as “radial” and “semi-radial”)
  2. plain slicing (also known as “flat cut”, “flat sliced” and “crown cut”)

Find more about the veneer quality at the Technical specification on sliced veneer and Veneer Gallery sections.

Volume

The total production capacities of veneer factories allow us to supply up to 400.000 square meters per  month

The Sampling Process

We provide individual approach for each customer. We perform sampling for you on your special requirements giving you the only quality you needed.
