The panels are fabricated and glued in the same manner and on the same substrates as conventional laminates. In addition, we would like to add the following comments:
Handle carefully, the wood veneer may split, if handled incorrectly.
Hot press bonding: Do not exceed 70°C.
Balancing: We strongly advise against using conventional type laminates for this purpose, the two materials being subject to differing expansion coefficients . For instance, doors may be backed both sides with “Sablés unfinished” sheets of same thickness and same surface finish. This is the same case when using thin substrates and/or in big dimensions.
Cleaning off glue deposits : proceed as for a solid wood surface.
Finish: Remove surface contamination from the panel surface by sanding in the direction of the wood-grain using a non-woven abrasive sheet like a Scotch-brite with a P240 granulation (grease contamination can be removed by applying solvents such as methylated spirits or acetone). Nota: The sanding could be done thanks to industrial sanding machines with adapted cylinders. Oberflex recommends testing your technique on smaller pieces of material prior to work on your project. After a dry removal of dust of the whole panel, please check the quality of the sanding. Due to the surface texture of the product, we recommend application of a filler and observing a minimum drying time of 12 hours, then carefully sand the panel surface in the direction of the woodgrain using a non-woven abrasive sheet like a Scotch-brite with a P320 granulation. If a tint should be applied on the panels, please apply preferably a solvent or hydro-alcoholized tint.
For the last one, spray-tint will give better results. If you require a tint, cleaning should always be practiced in the direction of the wood-grain. Finally please apply the varnish in one or two layers depending on the desired look.
