Coastland’s green veneer is manufactured to an exacting quality standard.
The moment the logs enter our veneer processing facility, primary scanning technology is used to optimize each log for the best cutting solution that will maximize recoveries. Secondary scanning then assesses whether the log will meet our veneer peeling standards before moving into the conditioning process. Only the best quality logs are moved to our lathe lines for peeling, while the lower quality logs are segregated from the veneer stream and sent into our chip system.
The logs that are deemed acceptable for our process are then showered by high temperature water until they reach a core temperature of approximately 49 degrees Celsius (120 F). The conditioning process allows us to peel our logs to a very high quality standard.
Once the logs have met the conditioning temperatures, they are then moved into one of our three lathe lines where they are peeled with the utmost precision. Our lathes produce a high yield, smooth peel with consistent thickness tolerances.
The veneer is then sorted by moisture and stacked into units before moving into the packaging process. At this stage a rigorous Quality Assurance System verifies that each package meets our standards for dimensions, thickness and grade quality..
