Curvwood DuraBack Style CG-855


DuraBack is a unique product designed and engineered as an alternative to traditional laminate backed veneer. Cabinet refacers and laminators in applications requiring tremendous stability, including aircraft and yacht interiors, use this resin-backed veneer successfully. The DuraBack sheet’s beige backer sheet blends nicely in most applications to maintain the natural beauty of the wood veneer. DuraBack veneer is extremely flexible, unlike traditional laminate backers. This product can be pre-finished, and may be used where solvent-based adhesive restrictions require craftsmen to use water-based glues.



  • Offers the stability of laminate, while providing superior flexibility.

  • Applies like laminate without unsightly black edges.

  • Eliminates bubbling, blistering and telegraphing.

  • Accepts almost any glue.

  • Pre-sanded and accepts pre-finishing prior to laminating.

  • Dimensionally stable and resists shrinkage.

  • Ships easily by UPS.

  • Variations to be expected from sheet to sheet & lot to lot.

  • Book or Balance matching available at addition charge, subject to specie.

General Application Considerations / Guidelines

Note: A skilled wood worker should only apply veneer sheet products.

Beware: NOT a RETAIL product, no installation instructions.



Materials should be properly conditioned before they are used. The standard recommendation is that both the veneer and substrate should be stored in the same environment for 5 days to ensure their moisture content is in equilibrium. Extreme temperature/humidity fluctuations will affect both the veneer and substrate. High humidity levels will cause veneer to expand/buckle, while extremely dry conditions will cause veneer to shrink. Both the veneer and substrate should be free of paint, grease, dirt, dust, oil, or any other foreign matter. Substrate surfaces must be sanded with 80 grit sandpaper and entire area dusted clean. Good bonds depend upon smooth, clean, dry surfaces.



Solvent based adhesives work best with veneer products. Water based products should be avoided when possible. The adhesive should be applied uniformly to both the substrate and veneer. 100% glue coverage is recommended. This is especially critical to the edges and areas where veneer sheets butt together. Any areas void of glue adhesive can bubble. If the substrate is porous and absorbs adhesive, a second coat is required. The veneer back should be coated also.

Follow the glue manufacturer's recommendation on open time before bonding the veneer to the substrate.

Keep in mind the open time is affected by humidity and temperature. Adhesives which contain higher solid contents perform better. Adhesives should always be stirred or agitated before use. This is particularly necessary with large containers. See manufacturer's recommendations.

The Only Exception to the non-use of water-based glues is with our DuraBack™ Resin-Backed veneer, which is recommended for use with both water and solvent-based adhesives.


*Potential Trouble Areas*

   1. Using water based products immediately raises moisture content and can cause delamination.

   2. Too little, too much, or uneven distribution of glue can cause delamination.

   3. Bonding before adhesive solvent has evaporated or after open time has expired can cause delamination.

Not recommended for use on sheet rock or drywall



To ensure intimate contact necessary for an adequate bond, sufficient pressure should be applied over the entire area using as much pressure as possible without damaging the veneer. Platten presses and bag presses work very well. If these options are not available use a fiber knife or veneer scraper and start in the center of the veneer sheet working out. Always work in the same direction as the grain of the veneer. The edges should always be scraped twice. A standard "J" roller is not recommended due to the low pressure exerted with them.



The adhesive should dry a minimum of 48 hours before finishing. High grade petroleum based urethanes and acrylic based lacquers reduce the risk of veneer checking. These finishes provide a good moisture barrier. Always seal the back of panels if raw or unsealed. Follow the recommendations of the finish manufacturer.
