Suggested Application for Panels and Veneers

 

Teragren Bamboo Suggested applications:

 

Veneer - 1/42", 2-ply and 1/8" standard veneer must be bonded to a suitable substrate of a reliable quality. Wheat board or MDF (medium density fiberboard) is the most stable substrate, followed by industrial particleboard, veneer-core plywood, and the least stable substrate—hardwood. Direct application to drywall, plaster walls, concrete walls or cardboard products is not recommended as delaminating may occur. Veneer should be applied to a suitable substrate to cover these surfaces. Installation over substrates that have been treated with a fire-retardant agent may need to be tested for compatibility. See Lamination for hot press information. Best uses: radius applications; laminations to various substrates; edge banding. Less expansion and contraction than solid thicker panels

1/8" 4' x 8' Traditional - 5-Ply : As with any hardwood thin panel, 1/8" bamboo panels are very susceptible to environmental changes, especially relative humidity. See Lamination for hot press information. Best uses: edge banding; cold mold multiple laminations; radius applications to about 16" diameter; light weight floating panels for backs of casework.

1/8" 4' x 6' Strand - Solid: As a thin panel, 1/8" is very susceptible to environmental changes, especially relative humidity. Best uses: edge banding; cold mold multiple laminations; radius applications to about 16" diameter; light weight floating panels for backs of casework.

¼" 4' x 8' Traditional - Solid: As a thin panel, 1/4" is susceptible to environmental changes, especially relative humidity. Best uses: floating panel for wall treatments; backs, sides and fronts for lightweight cabinets.

¼" Traditional - 3-ply with a cross-laminated core: More stable than a ¼" solid construction. Core showcases a decorative edge. No edge banding needed. Best uses: drawer bottoms, floating panel for wall treatments; fronts for frame and panel doors, backs, sides and fronts for lightweight cabinets; small box construction.

¼" 4' x 6' Strand - Solid: Best uses: drawer bottoms, fronts for frame and panel doors, floating panel for wall treatments; backs, sides and fronts for lightweight cabinets; small box construction.

½" 4' x 8' Traditional - 3-ply with a cross laminated core: Offers more stability than ¼" panels. Core showcases a decorative edge. No edge banding needed. Best uses: drawer boxes, bottoms and sides, casework sides and backs, floating panel for wall treatments; backs, small box construction.

¾" 4' x 8' Traditional - Solid: Best uses: Cabinet boxes, face frames, smaller doors, furniture, architectural mill work, countertops.

¾" 4' x 8' Traditional - 3-ply with a cross laminated core: Offers more stability for larger free hanging applications. Core showcases a decorative edge. No edge banding needed. Best uses: Flat front doors, casework, countertops, cabinet boxes, door and drawer faces, furniture and architectural mill work and anywhere S4S lumber is traditionally used.

¾" 4' x 6' Strand - 3-ply with vertical grain cross laminated core: Stronger than standard bamboo. Core showcases a decorative edge. No edge banding needed. Best uses: Flat front doors, casework, countertops, cabinet boxes, door and drawer faces, furniture and architectural mill work and anywhere S4S lumber is traditionally used.

13/16" 1' x 8' dimensional lumber - Solid: Best uses: furniture, architectural mill work, stiles and rails.
