Reconstituted flat cut rosewood wood veneer, also known as engineered flat cut or manmade santos rosewood, is typically an orange tinged rust brown color with dark chocolate brown streaks. It is normally available as FlexVen™ 10 and FlexVen™ 20 paper backed 4′ x 8′ sheets with a PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive) option. It is also available in the 4′ x 10′ size and with Tuf-Pli™ polyback or Pli-Flex™ wood on wood backers as special order.
Reconstituted rosewood is made from dyed and laminated layers of a fast growing secondary species of wood, with the grain running along the 8’ dimension. Flat cut reconstituted rosewood normally is not graded because it is manmade and has no defects. It boasts a uniformly colored cathedral grain pattern with a smooth texture. This engineered veneer is ideal for projects that require a large number of consistent sheets and accepts finishes well.
