India, July, 2017: CenturyPly has been the front-runner in applying innovation at work. The largest sellers of multi-use plywood and decorative veneers in India enters into a new category by launching a one of its kind product in the industry-VenLam, an innovative product that provides both, the aesthetic beauty of real wood and the comfort of working with high pressure laminates.
As the name “VenLam” suggests, it is a combination of Veneers and Laminates. VenLam is made by a technologically advanced process where decorative face veneer layers and layers of impregnated Kraft paper are fused together. There are 17 varieties of designs available with size of 8*4ft in the thickness of 1.0mm.
The superior lustre and increased durability makes VenLam an ideal choice for a wide range of applications.
· Boil water resistant Product
· Ease of work – conventional laminate tools are suitable for fabrication.
· Normal adhesive for Laminate is suitable for application. No nailing is required
· Requires less space for storage.
· Handling / shifting is easy. Can be delivered / shifted in roll form.
· Better surface finish because of calibrated surface (uniform thickness) – Results in superior finish after application of polish.
· Confirms to E1 grade in Formaldehyde emission standard.
· Termite and Borer resistant (under test).
VenLam allows application in those areas where traditional veneers cannot be used. Application areas of the product are as follows:
• Laminates along with VenLam can be used side by side (which was not possible in case of traditional veneers as the thickness was 3.5mm/4mm as compared to 1mm Laminates)
• Because of Light weight it’s easier to use in doors of Kitchen, modular furniture and also while re-furbishing antique furniture.
• Traditionally on cupboards / modular kitchens one side of the ply is 3.5mm veneer & other side is of 1mm Laminates (mostly inside) which causes problem in balancing. With VenLam this issue gets resolved.
