Non-Adhesive Phenolic Back 3D Laminate (RTF)

Our 3D Laminate RTF Veneer with a Phenolic Back is stiffer, thicker and more resistant to dents then other RTF Veneer Skins. These results in 3D Laminate Veneer that lies flat and will not wrinkle or dimple when applied to a surface. For that reason, Cabinet Refacers commonly use this veneer on the cabinet end panels of RTF Thermofoil cabinet refacing projects.

Many phenolic back materials will leave a black line at the edge or corner of a cabinet. However, our Non-Adhesive Phenolic Back Veneers use a lighter colored phenolic that eliminates this issue. This type of veneer is also known as a “No Black Line” veneer.

The phenolic backing is similar to laminate countertop material and has characteristics that cause it to perform like laminate. Solvent-based or water based contact cement can be used for this product application. The phenolic backing acts as a barrier between the glue and the 3D Laminate Thermofoil. This eliminates any chance of the finish being affected by any solvent based adhesives bleeding through the veneer during the installation process.

WalzCraft does offer a Veneer Smoothing Tool made of a beveled plexiglass blade that will not scratch veneer products during installation.
