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.
