Urea glues have been used in the manufacturing process and therefore contain formaldehyde emissions which are less than 2.5mg/m2 per hour according to EN 717/2.  This has been tested and certified by an outside laboratory body called CATAS.  In the production of birdseye and burr patterns the emission is more than 3.5mg/m2 per hour due to more glue being used.  WWTT suggests that normal OH&S timber veneer use practices are followed when using this product.

Finishing / Polishing:
Veneers like most timbers used in furniture, joinery and fit-out require a protective coating or lacquer to protect them from the rigours of day to day usage.  It is important that the selection of finish is suitable for the end use application of the finished piece of furniture, etc.  For example, a highly decorative jewellery box doesn't need the same durable coating as a kitchen cabinet, or even a laboratory fitment does.

Treatments vary markedly with desired finishes and products and it is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully. Please use a water based polish as acid based polish will react with the Urea glues

UV Light:
Natural veneers will fade when subject to ultra violet light and engineered veneers can discolour.  To minimise this change WWTT recommends the use of toner in the finishing system, as well as sufficient amounts of an UV inhibitor at a percentage recommended by your qualified polisher.  Please note that greys, reds and blues are more prone to colour change due to the effects of UV light and the finished colour may be affected by such things as staining, polish choice, exposure to light, excessive heat in panel production and reaction to glues and other chemicals.  WWTT recommends the use of non-yellowing finishes and does not recommend the use of its veneers in areas subject to high light exposure.  It is also recommended that the customer runs fabrication tests to determine the potential for colour change.

As veneers are dyed, slight colour variations can occur between different block lots, due to natural variations in the timbers and their absorption of the dyes and different dye batches.  This is the equivalent to the variations of colour experienced in fabrics, carpets, etc.  To achieve a consistent finish all veneer required for a project should be ordered from the same dye batch and the same coating systems and processes should be utilised and applied to that veneer.

Polished samples are not warranted as representative of the finished article.  WWTT recommends customers to arrange for a polished sample of the veneer specified, indicative of the finished product, be provided by the cabinet maker responsible for the project.

Pressing the Veneer:
When pressing veneers to any substrate, the tight (or smooth) side of the veneer should be towards the glue line.
