RIKON VENEER

Rikon Veneer

Reconstituted veneer is man-made veneer produced from fast growing wood species, laid and sometimes dyed to mimic the look of their real wood counterparts. Wood species used in making of reconstituted veneer have an average of 6-10 years of life before being ready for harvesting versus 80-150 years for most hardwoods of which natural veneer is taken. Some of the advantages of reconstituted veneers are:

Grain and color consistency from sheet to sheet.
Defect-free veneers.
Sustainable.
Ideal sizes that reduce wastage.
Wide color and grain spectrum.
Endless design possibilities.

Why Rikon

Backed with strong knowledge and long history in natural veneer and lumber industry and having witnessed and believed in the evolution of recon veneer, Rikon was established with the goal of offering its partners the latest in veneer trends and the highest quality in the industry with superior service and affordable prices.

PRODUCTION STAGES

Cutting Logs into Veneer

Wood logs are cut in rotary cutting method to produce wide veneer flitches suitable for production of recon veneer blocks.

Dyeing

Rotary-cut veneer flitches are died in the desired final color.

Creating The Pattern

Different died veneer flitches in different color are mixed and laid together.

Gluing

The different layers of veneer flitches formed in the previous stage are then stacked and glued altogether in shape of a block. When necessary, glue can be tinted.

Pressing Logs

The cube shaped block is pressed. Some designs require flat press and some need wavy press platen to influence the final appearance of the veneer grain after the cured block is cut on its edge.

Squaring And Sanding Blocks

After pressing, blocks are squared and sanded in preparation for the next step.

Cutting | slicing

After sanding, blocks are sliced on their edges to veneer that is now called reconstituted veneer.
