Real Flexible Wood Sheet Tennâge® "Sewable Wood"
Conventional real wood sheet is not flexible and can't be curved or bent. Therefore, its application is limited to flat use for building and furniture. It could be wrapped around on the solid surface, but is often coated by plastics or films to protect from chipping or cracking, resulting the loss of natural look and feel.
We have developed new real wood sheet together with Ryukoku University to overcome with these limitation of real wood sheet. That is our real flexible wood sheet, "Sewable Wood".
Technology of Tennâge®
Macromolecule replacing water and easing a stress concentration
Real wood is thinly sliced, impregnated with resins, and backed with backing materials such as Japanese papers and non-woven fabrics. By doing these processes, real wood sheet becomes flexible and durable without losing its natural look and feel. This real wood sheet is flexible and durable enough for repeat bending and even sewing. "Sewable Wood" overcomes the limitation of wood, and is capable to many applications.
Real flexible wood sheet, is patented in Japan and U.S.A.
