Wire Brush Service

Timberwood Panels are giving Timber Veneerboard a new look. Ideal for feature doors and panels in commercial and domestic bathrooms, kitchens, furniture and joinery, our Timber Veneer Wire Brush Service can be applied to most of our Timber Veneers.

Using a revolutionary sander allows Timberwood Panels to apply a wire brush finish giving a more defined grain to the board. This process favours crown cut veneers but the final look will vary from species to species creating an original and unique look for your feature.

The Minimum size for this service is 0305x0120x3.6mm with Maximum size being 3660x1250x50mm.

Press Information for Timber Veneers (Hot Press)

All pressing substrates must be flat and have a solid core. Raw materials such as medium density fibreboard (MDF) or particleboard are ideal for pressing as they have been engineered to withstand the pressure and heat of a hot press along.

Note: untrimmed & unsanded, see trimming & sanding guidelines below.

Pressing veneer onto foreign substrates is possible, however the following guidelines need to be followed:

  • Substrate cannot be pre-finished or have any kind of coating on the pressing surface
  • All substrates should be supplied oversized, various elements of the pressing cycle can impact the overall size of the board/substrate; infeed, outfeed, handling, etc
  • Substrates must be free of any machining; holes, rebates, grooves, etc. Any voids in the substrate can compromise the bond between veneer and substrate
  • Substrates must be free of any metal objects i.e. hardware, screws, nails, etc
  • To prevent bowing and equal thicknesses, veneer should be pressed on the opposite side (back) of the face

As an example, please see below guidelines for pressing onto a door:

  1. Ensure the door is solid core, without any internal voids
  2. Do not drill/rebate any hardware, holes and voids in the surface as this will compromise the veneer bond
  3. Consider the press limitations when choosing a door size
  4. To prevent damage please supply the door oversized as the door can be re-cut, once veneer has been applied
  5. Mark the door clearly as to which faces are to have veneer
  6. Refer to Trimming and Sanding guidelines below
