5 Main Types of Fleece Backed Veneer Sheets and Rolls
Fleece Backed Natural Real Veneer
For the best use of natural wood resources and reduction of costs. People consider cutting the wood veneer sheets as thin as possible.
But there is a big problem, which is the thin veneer sheet is easy to break and crack in the application.
For example, natural oak veneer, Burma teak veneer, and Santos rosewood veneer can be 0.1mm thin. As we know, it seems that only Chinese veneered plywood/MDF factories can apply raw wet super thin veneers on the substrate.
And some special woodworking projects want the natural wood veneer is super thin to have better light transparency. But, the carpenter can not deal with raw wet natural veneer.
In this regard, fleece backed natural veneer is your best choice.

Moreover, the engineered veneer can be 2500x640mm big sheet or 2500x1250mm for the panel size.
The engineered veneer sheet size can also be customized to match the wood door panel size.
Then you will know how easy it is to face whole sheet thin veneers on the door panels when you get 0.2mm thickness with fleece backing.
You do not need to cut or splice engineered veneer sheets. And there are a few losses of materials.
Not only thin engineered veneer with fleece but some wood door manufacturers choose 0.4mm and 0.5mm thick veneer with fleece back.
Fleece Backed Bamboo Veneer

Without fleece backing support, you can not use a raw bamboo veneer. Because there are many splits between bamboo strips.
From 0.25mm thin bamboo veneer sheets to 0.6mm thick bamboo veneer sheets, all have to be with fleece back support.
As you probably know, fleece peeling is the main quality problem for bamboo veneer sheets.
So if you want to buy good quality bamboo veneers. You have to check the fleece bonding quality and veneer surface quality together.

Those fleece-backed wood veneer edge banding and profile wrapping veneer have wide applications. For door trim, window casing, skirting baseboard, and molding profile.
Rare Veneer With Fleece Backing
For some rare and exotic wood veneers, which will be cut into 0.1mm to 0.2mm ultra-thin.
So that we have to bond veneer sheets with fleece to make it flexible.
For example, cross cut end grain veneer, they are easy to break. Especially for oak end grain veneer and ash end grain veneer, which is unfirm. Usually, we make the veneers with fleece back to avoid breaking in the applications.
For end grain walnut veneer round pieces, even stable than ash veneer, but we still suggest making fleece backed.
