Microwood veneer is one of the finest, up-market products being produced from wood anywhere in the world. The unique process is able to produce extremely thin veneers (0.08 – 0.15 mm) that are almost like paper. Because of the thinness of the veneer and its paper backing, this material has an enormous degree of flexibility and resistance to breaking both lengthwise and crosswise – so much so that it can even achieve a wide range of folding radii. In addition, Microwood veneer can be embossed, stamped, perforated as well as printed using offset, digital and screen methods. The lighter coloured maple version is better than the darker ones for making printed products for the obvious reason that a greater degree of contrast can be achieved. The darker versions, however, achieve good contrast when they are laser printed. Further information about printing work can be found in the PDF file below. The following are particularly good for writing on Microwood: PENTEL-GEL ROLLERBALL, BALLPOINT PEN. The following pens should not be used: FILM PEN, EDDING PERMANENT MARKER. Bonding work is best done with all-purpose glues (TESA, UHU), white glue (e.g. PONAL EXPRESS) as well as DOUBLE-SIDED ADHESIVE TAPE or FILM. If you are storing Microwood, exposure to strong sunlight should be avoided as well as large swings of humidity and over-drying.
The double-sided version of the Microwood veneer paper looks like a normal rotary cut veneer but it is in fact a sandwich material made from two layers of razor-thin wood veneer and three layers of paper. The tendency to wave up is relatively small and its flexibility is incredible. It can be bent in unbelievable narrow radii without breaking. If you carefully score the veneer layer you can actually fold it so as to produce an edge. This material is suitable for making things like exclusive packaging, jewellery and accessories, book covers, folders, unique calling cards, greeting cards as well as for model making.

Wood is a natural product and every sheet of Microwood veneer is unique, each having its own grain, colouring and structure. Please note that the various types of wood have differing levels of brittleness and their cell structures are by nature also different. The maple and the cherry woods have surfaces that are the most closed.
The veneer is untreated. This means that the colour tones that it gives off will change according to the angle of the light hitting it, most especially when it is exposed to direct sunlight.
Microwood is a patented product and copyrighted name and can only be sold or processed by licensed dealers. All products made from Microwood must display a notice to that effect. Commercial production of envelopes, packaging of all types, lamp shades, file folders, menu cards and CD covers using Microwood veneer remains the sole prerogative of the Microwood company.
