It is strongly recommended that all veneer sheets go through an acclimation process. Wood veneer is a versatile, organic material that reacts to changes in environmental conditions. Veneer is hygroscopic which means it emits and absorbs moisture. When you receive your veneer it needs to acclimatize to conditions in your environment to reach equilibrium. The ideal environment to achieve equilibrium with your veneer is defined as 30-55% relative humidity at a temperature range between 55-85 degrees F. Prior to application, allow your veneer a minimum of 48-72 hours lying flat out of the box within the range of conditions stated. It's also important that your substrate be acclimatized in the same conditions as the veneer to have greater success and avoid problems.
All veneer sheets are production sanded only, NOT FINISH SANDED. They will require additional sanding prior to finishing.
