Bamboo is one of the most underrated raw materials. Bamboo is sustainable, renewable, grows relatively quickly and its natural beauty makes it unique.
Bamboo is as strong as steel and has greater tensile strength. This is due to the hard surface and parallel fiber bundles of the bamboo stalks that are close together.
Bamboo has the advantage of being super elastic. It is so flexible that it returns to the starting position every time and does not deform after bending.
Thanks to its high stability, bamboo easily lasts a lifetime. Hence, bamboo is increasingly used in public spaces, construction and as decking/terrace boards and fences.
Bamboo Veneer is a thin sheet of bamboo used as a durable alternative to traditional wood veneer. It is made by laminating thin layers of bamboo over each other with glue and then cutting them into sheets. Bamboo Veneer is used for a wide range of applications, including furniture, interior finishes, flooring and wall cladding. It is durable, lightweight, strong, and has a unique and natural look that stands out from traditional wood veneer.
Bamboo Veneer is available in different thicknesses, ranging from about 0.6 mm to 3 mm. The thickness of the veneer depends on the application and the desired appearance. Thinner veneers are often used for furniture and decorative surfaces, while thicker veneers are used for flooring and wall cladding. Most Bamboo Veneer suppliers offer a range of thicknesses to meet different requirements and specifications.
Bamboo Veneer is naturally moisture resistant, making it suitable for use in damp environments such as bathrooms or kitchens. It is less prone to warping and cracking than traditional wood veneer. However, it is important to clean and properly maintain the veneer regularly to avoid moisture problems. It is also important to protect the veneer from moisture and wear with a suitable varnish.
Bamboo Veneer can be installed and fastened in different ways, depending on the application and the substrate. It can be glued to a substrate of wood, MDF or plywood or directly to walls, ceilings and doors. For good adhesion, it is important that the surface is well cleaned and degreased before applying the veneer. The veneer can be fixed with glue, screws, nails or staples.
