Timber Veneer is a thin layer of finely-grained wood adhered to a base timber material.
In general, timber-veneered surfaces should not be left wet/damp or with wet staining materials on them. Do not clean with harsh chemicals or cleaners that may affect the finish of the surface.
Abrasive cleaning can scratch the surface and reduce clarity.
Be careful with sharp objects so as not to scratch or mark the surface of the wood.
Veneered surfaces will change colour to a greater or lesser degree, depending on exposure to artificial or natural light over an extended period of time. The degree of change will depend on the length of exposure and the type of veneer chosen.
Only use a dry soft cloth or feather duster. Use a damp cloth to wipe a slight stain on the surface.
Temperature changes / direct sunlight
Avoid direct sunlight as it can fade or change the colour of the veneer. Expansion or contraction of the timber due to extreme temperature changes may cause damage to the surface. Use heat resistance place mats under hot food and beverages to avoid heat damage.
Clean all spillages with a damp cloth as soon as possible. Moisture may cause damage to the coating. High humidity, steam and excessive moisture contact may cause cracking or white marking of the veneer surface.
Consistent use of spray-type wood maintenance wax to retain the texture of wood grain.

Will there be any inconsistency in timber veneers?
Yes, timber is of a natural characteristic, so different trees and batches may produce different variations of natural veneers. We have over 40 years of manufacturing experience, we understand clients’ specific requirements for their projects and will have the capacity to work towards supplying the most suitable materials. Our Reconstituted series are re-engineered veneers made from Italy, with the highest level of quality ensured in preparing our veneers to ensure inconsistency is kept to a minimum. However, with any timber veneer products, there will still be variations between different batches of veneers.
