250 cm x 125 cm / Caramel
1948 RJ Beverwijk
This caramel-colored bamboo veneer is made from vertically pressed bamboo. With vertically pressed bamboo veneer, the visible "strips" are narrower with visible knots. This gives the veneer a unique look.
Bamboo Veneer is a versatile product that can be used in multiple ways. For example, you can use it as wall covering or covering different furniture. This way you create a real bamboo look for a small price. Also, veneer is easy to cut to size.
The standard thickness of our veneer is 0.6 mm, of which 0.5 mm is bamboo and 0.1 mm is "backing material". At the factory, a thin layer of veneer is cut from a solid bamboo block and then applied to a cellulose fleece with a D3 water-resistant PVAC adhesive. The strong cellulose fleece on the back of the veneer helps prevent tearing and allows it to be easily pressed onto a backing.
The great advantage of bamboo veneer is that it is very regular in color and no pattern differences occur as is the case with wood veneer. Bamboo is a grass species and has no growth rings or dark heartwood. These properties make it very easy to cover large areas or entire rooms in the same uniform style.

With photosynthesis, bamboo extracts CO2 from the air and releases oxygen. Bamboo produces about 40% more oxygen than wood and absorbs up to 35% more CO2 than wood. That makes bamboo better for CO2 offsetting than wood.
More about Bamboo
Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
