About birch veneer

A veneer is a thin coating of wood made from a log that has been rotated. Depending on the type of wood and desired use, veneers can be rotary cut in a variety of thicknesses.

Apart from the veneer utilized in the manufacturing of plywood, UPM Plywood also produces Foresmate-Parquet Veneer products for the parquet sector using birch. The veneers used in the manufacturing of UPM’s Foresmate® plywood are primarily peeled in thicknesses of 2.0 mm, 2.6 mm, and 3.2 mm and 1.5 mm for birch.
