Know a little more about our production process. We are always investing in technology, equipment and qualified labor to deliver the best product to our customers.

01 Unloading

Our process starts on the log yard, right after the logs had been received under the criteria of  diameter and cylindrical uniformity they are ” cooked” for more than 15 hours in steam tanks for better lamination efficiency and quality.

02 Lamination

After cooking the logs are taken to the lamination line where they’ll be peeled. Then they are laminated and cut according to the finished product measures.

03 Dryer

After being laminated the veneers goes to the dryers, for the drying process, in which its remains for 15 to 20 minutes.

At the end of it the slides are classified by our careful quality controls that involves accumulating knots, density and moisture content still present in the slide.

04 Assembling

’After the drying process the core veneers rests for at least a day in stock, until it goes through the glue application process based on phenolic resin. The center and face veneers will also REST in stock but it doesn’t go to glue application, this task will be carried out by the short fibers between the layers. In order to obtain more mechanical resistance in the plywood panel, during its assembly, the blades are always overlapped intercalating the fiber direction.

05 Cold Press

When the boards are already mounted they are pressed in the cold press, so it’s easier to the flooring in high temperature presses and advance the process of resin penetration into the wood pores.

06 Steam Press

When the boards are done in the cold press they are ready to the high temperature press. In this process, at the moment that the glue changes from its liquid state to its vitrification state that we have an effective glueing, so then allowing all that “sandwich” slides to turn into one resistant board.

07 Finishing

To correct any detail that had left on the boards surfaces, a paste based on phenolic resin and quartz powder is applied. The final product characteristics  will tell if the boards are going to be calibrated after the luster and the necessary time for the paste to dry.

08 Placage

The next step is to apply our own tego-film paper. This process occurred in a press heated by a heater exchanger, what is responsible  for keeping the press plates in a stable temperature  while guaranteeing an uniform application above the boards surface.

It is this paper that will provide the best resistance to humidity and the chemical reaction that happens on the plate during concreting.

09 Completion and Loading

And finally when the boards are square cutted, painted and packed, they are sent to the loading department.
