FAQ’s About Shinnoki Prefinished Timber Veneer

How is Shinnoki processed?

Have a look at the ‘videos‘ section of this webpage to watch the shinnoki processing videos. If you have any further questions concerning the processing of Shinnoki please contact one of our specialists.

Can Shinnoki panels be applied horizontally?

Shinnoki is finished with 6 layers of acrylate uréthane UV-cured lacquer.  This automatically means that this lacquer is extremely strong. Consequently Shinnoki is suitable for normal horizontal use. However, Shinnoki cannot be used for worktops in the kitchen or other very heavily used horizontal surfaces. Shinnoki is not suitable for horizontal use in bathrooms or similar humid areas either.

Is a single-sided board stable enough?

Single sided boards are finished on one side with the Shinnoki design. To guarantee the stability, a balance veneer is needed. We chose for a technical veneer which is stained and lacquered to be a reasonably matching balancer pertaining to the front side. Thus the applied veneers of the front side and back side are different but with our specially developed production process, this is not a problem. Via the HPLT system the panels are pressed with high pressure but at low temperatures.

TIP : We recommend giving high cabinets (> 2 meter) sufficient hinges. Sliding doors must always be produced from double-sided Shinnoki boards. 

When should you use the ordinary wooden veneer edging and when should you use the ABS edging?

The wooden veneer edge bandings are sufficient for most finishes, but in some cases, we recommend you use our ABS bands.

When to use ABS:

  • If the sides are used extensively (in the kitchen for example). These protect the sides better.
  • In humid areas (bathroom, dishwasher, kitchen).
  • In high heat areas. Its high level of heat resistance means it can be used on kitchen cabinets next to hot ovens or hobs without damage or distortion.

It is also possible to configure a small radius on the ABS edges as they are 1 mm thick. Both the veneer edges and the ABS edges are colored through and through.

Can Shinnoki be used in the bathroom?

Yes, but not for everything. The lacquer of Shinnoki is resistant to splashwater. Manufacturing bathroom furniture is therefore perfectly possible as long as you don’t use Shinnoki board for horizontal surfaces. You should also avoid permanently wet areas. When fluid is spilled, this should be cleaned up as quickly as possible to prevent it from penetrating into the pores.

Why are there edge bandings with a thickness of 48 mm available?

The thick edge bandings have been developed to finish the edges of thicker panels (for example, library shelves). This can easily be done by two Shinnoki panels bonded together (finished thickness of 38 mm) and then work with the wider edge bandings. Also door bodies can be finished easily with the 48mm edges.

What would you use the laminate for?

The Shinnoki Laminates (single sheets) are developed for optimal ease of use in multiple situations. For example, for the finishing of a door in a renovation project or the repairing of existing furniture. Because the sheets are slightly bendable you can also use them for curved surfaces. Postformation is not possible. The processing recommendations of Shinnoki Laminate can be found in the downloadable guides below.

Can Shinnoki be obtained on other cores? In other dimensions?

Yes, Shinnoki can indeed be obtained on different cores or in other sizes. There is a minimum requirement of 25 panels finished with an identical Shinnoki design. We recommend that you contact us if you have further questions about this.

Can sliding doors be manufactured from Shinnoki?

This is perfectly possible but we recommend using double-sided Shinnoki-boards in such case. The use of a door straightener is also recommended (see processing film in the ‘videos’ section of this website).

How can Shinnoki be used for wall paneling?

Shinnoki is very often used as a wall panel. Because the boards are ready-made, you only have to assemble and install them. This can be done in different ways, but a popular method is to hang the boards against a wooden grid.

Why is there a peelcoat?

The protective film is applied on both sides and protects the surface during transport and processing. In addition, you can apply marks with a marker or self-adhesive stickers without leaving residues on the veneer surface. Thus the protective film considerably increases the ease of use.

Can you supply me the stain so I can manufacture my own Shinnoki?

This is not possible. The stain of Shinnoki is applied and brushed in a specific industrial way that can not be obtained with traditional machines. The combination of various factors plays a major role in this. Do you want Shinnoki on a different type of baseboard or in a different size? Please do not hesitate to contact our team to discuss your needs.

Can I add another topcoat lacquer?

No, the Shinnoki panels are ready-made and do not need further post-treatment. We strongly advise against applying an extra varnish or oil layer, for whatever reason.
