Furthermore, all wood-based composite materials we produce comply with Class E1 requirements (formaldehyde emissions) based on the provisions of the Italian Ministerial Decree of 10 October 2008, according to which, starting 11 December 2008, Italy prohibits the introduction and use of wood-based or semi-finished panels and finished products with formaldehyde emissions higher than those established for class E1, as defined in the EN 13986 standard.

What are the advantages of multilayer veneering?
The main advantage is its price.
Can all wood types be pressed, even the finest ones?
All veneers, even the finest ones (such as walnut, cherry, durmast oak, oak, and many others) can be pressed. However, in order to save on production costs, sheets of precious woods are used for veneering, while the inner layers are made of beech or birch wood.
Why are birch and beech wood mainly used for the inner layers of plywood?
Both woods guarantee durability and flexibility, which facilitates the pressing and subsequent shaping process, and they also have an excellent quality/price ratio.
