In addition to the German edging firm’s already-established surfaces –Sandblast, Wormhole, Rough Cut and Wave – H Heitz Furnierkantenwerk now offers CroCo, a new relief-like structure for natural veneer surfaces.
The relief-like texture of CroCo expands the tactile experience of veneer surfaces remarkably. It can be produced on all common wood species and is not limited to custom veneer cuts or expensive processing procedures. Heitz offers a wide range of applications at reasonable cost. Variable thicknesses of veneer allows for individual adjustments of the texture – from moderate to expressive.
Heitz Rough Cut structure
Natural veneer offers a lot more possibilities than paper, foil or plastic ever could. All essential production parameters remain the same, which allows for a wide range of use for the new textured edgebanding.
The CroCo texture is inspired by the look of crocodile skin. Any type of veneer can be expressively refined in this way. Through the use of stains and lacquers, the design options can be further expanded. For example, by colouring the pores white the impression of a vintage or shabby chic surface can be underlined.
Heitz Split Wood structure
The Nero CroCo texture gives the impression of a burned wooden surface as it arises, for example, by slight charring without burning the wood. This structure can ideally be used to accentuate surfaces of commercially available veneers or plastic surfaces. This creates a delightful edge look on the workpiece with an expressive surface very close to the look of burned wood. By white-colouring the pores, the charred optic is accentuated visually and can be used effectively as a design element.
Through the use of this texture, tactile and visually acceptable accents can be set on the workpiece, which underlines the naturalness of the material wood. This texture gives even very plain types of wood an interesting visual enhancement.
Heitz Wormhole structure
Previous experience shows that the textured surfaces can be realised for the complete product range from Heitz. Remarkable surface textures can be created from thick veneer edgebanding to wrapping and softforming veneers. Regardless of the use – base mouldings, picture frames, furniture profiles or as a special accent for interior doors – sophisticated and up-to-date designs are possible.
Heitz and its sales team are available for further questions and to adjust the individual specifications of the product.
Heitz Wave structure
CroCo and CroCo Nero are inspired by the look of crocodile skin – any type of veneer can be expressively refined in this way. By white-colouring the pores, the impression of a vintage or shabby-chic surface can be underlined
The following designs are now immediately available:
• Nero-CroCo – This texture gives the impression of a burned wooden surface as it arises, for example, by slight charring without burning the wood. By white colouring the pores, the charred optic is accentuated visually and can be used effectively as a design element.
• Wormhole – This texture simulates the look of timber worm-affected solid wood. But other than the real affection by insects, the Wormhole design does not come with any technical disadvantage. In combination with the natural figure of the veneer it gives a unique appearance.
• Rough Cut – This design gives users the look of a rough, untreated surface that can be typically achieved from band saws or reciprocating saws. The Rough Cut edgebanding can be used with all different rough cut veneers available on the market.
