In this EPD the slicing technology was considered for the production of 1 m² decorative veneers, which are thin slices of hardwood timber. The sliced veneer is cut and packaged with an average thickness of 0.5 to 0.6 mm and an allowed variation of 0.03 mm at a moisture content of 11 to 13 %.
More than 20 different wood species are typically processed for sliced veneers. However, the quantities and species processed vary greatly over years for demand-related reasons. Hence, the three most representative and less varying species, i.e. ash, beech, and oak (72.2 % of the total roundwood processed at the slicing plant) were included as a product mix in this EPD.
