What is the difference between wood panel and wainscoting
It is mainly composed of two parts: substrate and surface film. The main component of the substrate is polymer material, the surface film is divided into pvc film and pp film, and the surface is covered with wood grain. When making, the natural wood is cut into thin slices of uniform thickness, and then it is attached to the surface of the plywood and hot pressed.
What is the thickness of wood veneer?
The thickness of the wood veneer patch is generally 3mm, and the slightly thicker patch, such as 9mm, will be more used in commercial and office building spaces. When this kind of board is used in home decoration, most of the woodworkers make a large core board as a base, and then paste a layer of decorative board for decoration. This thin layer of finishes can be divided into natural materials and man-made materials.
There are more than 20 types of natural wood materials in the market, such as walnut, beech, oak, teak, cherry, sandalwood, rosewood, etc. The patterns are natural, non-repetitive, and have good visual effects.
However, when encountering precious wood or imported materials, the price will remain high after being cut into veneer.
So people thought that using artificial materials to imitate the texture of natural wood can achieve the same effect, and the market for artificial veneer panels has gradually expanded. At present, technology wood and melamine panels are relatively mature technologies.
Tech wood is processed on cheap fast-growing wood to make a texture similar to precious wood, which greatly reduces the cost. It is then made into veneer and pasted on the surface of the board, and the wood veneer made of it is very cost-effective.
Can wood veneer be directly installed on the wall without primer?
It can be directly mounted on the wall, and it is generally recommended to use the dry hanging method. The dry hanging method is an installation method in which the wood decorative panel is directly hung on the wall by the pendant, thereby forming the wood decorative background wall, without the need for pasting. The whole force is on the dragon skeleton of the main structure, which is relatively strong and durable, and the seismic performance is particularly good, and it will not fall off.
What is the difference between wood veneer and wainscoting?
Although both wood veneer and wainscoting are used for surface decoration in decoration, there are many differences between them.
1. Application scenarios
Wood veneer: wall, furniture, stone, porcelain board, etc.
As the name suggests, siding is originally a wooden board used to protect the wall. As a high-grade material to replace latex paint and wallpaper, it is generally only used for the wall.
The veneer is different. The veneer itself is a surface material, which can be used not only for wall decoration, but also for the surface of various scenes such as furniture and countertops.
2. Appearance value
siding ≈ wood veneer
Wall panels and wood veneer panels have their own merits in appearance.
The siding mostly uses solid wood or logs as the base material, and is matched with various solid wood lines, which are thick and luxurious, and show the atmosphere.
The surface thin wood of the wood veneer can be selected according to the owner's preference, and can be integrated into most house types and decoration styles. Wood veneer generally also has the warmth and naturalness of natural wood, and its appearance is quite good.
3. Environmental performance

The base material of siding is generally spliced with natural solid wood or original wood slats, without skin or interlayer, and artificial additives (such as glue) are relatively few. In addition, the installation of the siding is to first lay a keel on the wall and install the base board, and then fix the siding to it with nails, and glue is used less.
The main problem of the wood veneer is that when installing the wood veneer, in addition to the keel and the base board, it must be pasted with glue. As the saying goes, "no aldehyde, no glue", the environmental protection of wood veneer is naturally greatly reduced.
Wood veneer > siding
The price of siding is much higher than that of wood veneer.
