Hardwood Panels - ArmorCore®

Lighter, tougher, flatter, harder, and stronger are the key attributes of States ArmorCore® substrates. For applications demanding superior performance, ArmorCore® is just what you're looking for. ArmorCore® combines the low weight and high strength advantages of veneer cored panels with the superior flatness and higher density of MDF.
Veneer Cores  image

Veneer Cores

1 Step Veneer, or Conventional Construction is the least expensive way to manufacture a veneer core panel because all laminations including the face and back veneers are assembled and pressed at one time. The drawback to this method is that imperfections in the core veneers can transfer to the surface as high or low spots on the face and back.
Composite Cores  image

Composite Cores

Particleboard is perhaps the least expensive core for hardwood plywood because its particles are less refined than MDF, yet it is perfect for many applications. It is smoother and more uniform than veneer cores and available in Class A fire ratings as well as no-added-urea-formaldehyde constructions. Particleboard is generally available 1/2" or thicker. While some hardwood plywood producers manufacture their own particleboard, most outsource this core material.

Rotory  image

Rotory

The entire log is peeled. This method can yield full sheets of veneer. The grain pattern is broad with no plain or quarter-sliced appearance.

Rift Cut

An angle of 15 degrees to the radius of the flitch is used to minimize the ray flake effect in oak.

Plain Sliced

The method produces grain pattern. Most logs will also yield some quarter appearance.

Quarter Sliced

This method produces a series of stripes straight in some woods, varied in others. A flake pattern is produced when slicing through medullary rays in some species, principally oak.

Prefinished: Hardwood Panels - Nova SI

Silver Ion technology is a proven inhibitor against microbes pathogens and bacteria.

This environmentally friendly finish is safe for people, animals, plants and food.

How does NOVA SI work? Inorganic silver ions in NOVA SI permeate the actual wood finish with a self decontaminating coating. This protective coating works in a unique fashion. In the presence of moisture, the silver ions are released. This dis- rupts cellular respiration, preventing the spread of bacterial contaminants.

Prefinished: Hardwood Panels - Nova Lab

Nova Lab finishes have been formulated and applied to meet Scientific Equipment and Furniture Association (SEFA) standards for chemical resistance. They are appropriate to use anywhere interior vertical surfaces are exposed to harsh chemicals, including laboratories, commercial kitchens, work rooms and testing centers.

Wall Paneling image

Wall Paneling

Decorative face veneers are the reason hardwood plywood is specified as a material and the primary determinant of panel costs. Learning to specify the wood specie, cut, match and grade of veneers that achieve precisely the desired appearance is an art unto itself, and can require much study and experience. What we hope to accomplish here is a brief overview of veneer types and characteristics and their impact on appearance. While there are a multitude of wood species to select from, we are concerned here with commercially available veneers, both domestic and imported.

Available species include Bamboo, Birch, Cedar, Cherry, Kaudamu, Oak and Pecan and stain colors run the gamut from light to dark. Certain paneling products use individual veneer components between each vertical groove to achieve a more authentic "plank" effect called random matching.
