A Veneer with a rough surface can cause excessive resin use and may result in resin bleeding through the face veneer. The roughness of the face veneer can be improved to an extent by sanding and glued paper tape. Face veneers are used for their decorative and qualities with their strength.
The natural face veneer is available in thickness in flitch form and the stitched veneer is protected by Face Veneer Tape to give a finished veneer. Waco manufactures face veneer tape and is used by plywood manufacturers during peeling, joining, and repairing of veneer to manufacture plywood. It reduces the loss of material due to shrinking and splitting. This helps to retard moisture dissipation at veneer edges and helps in counteracting the split developments.
Waco Face Veneer tape prevents the shifting of the veneer sheets during the preparation and follow-up of veneering as well as during the pressing procedure. The tape has an adhesive coating on one side that needs to be activated with a small amount of water before use. For a reliable glue connection, we supply perforated and non-perforated face veneer tape on a roll. Face Veneer Tape is available in plain brown and perforated brown color.
