Four diverse composite veneers comprise our product offering:
Brookline® veneer is the foundation of our entire line of veneer products. As you will see in the pages that follow, Brookline® is produced from a solid laminated block of dyed veneer. When sliced, each block yields 25” x 11’3” or 25” x 8’3” sheets of veneer, depending on the pattern. We recommend using a hot or cold press to bond Brookline® to the proper substrate. (Custom sizes available.)
Brookline® Paperback Veneers
Bonded through heat and pressure to a variety of backings, the backed veneers are stress-relieved, sanded and trimmed. The resulting product is an extremely flexible veneer that is ideal for laminating to curved or flat surfaces.
We produce Braewood® by laminating Brookline® veneer to a paper impregnated with phenolic resin. The resulting product can be fabricated with the ease of a decorative laminate and requires only light sanding before finishing.
This line of Braewood® is finished with a specially designed matte polyurethane coating. The process yields a durable, transparent coating which is resistant to water and heat. Each sheet is post-formable and available with a protective peel sheet.
Also available by special order: Brookline® Lumber, Edgebanding, and Melamine Finished Braewood.® Ask for details!
