Note: Peel and stick veneers work best on areas that are no wider than 2’ wide. We have seen 2 or 3 instances where the peel and stick veneers do not stick well to areas that are wider than 2’. If this occurs, it is usually due to exposure to extremes of temperature or humidity.
Q. How do I stain and finish a peel and stick wood veneer?
A. This is real wood. You stain and finish peel and stick veneers just like you stain and finish any wooden surface.
Q. What surfaces will a peel and stick veneer stick to?
A. Peel and stick wood veneer sheets will stick to almost any surface that is smooth and flat and free of dirt and dust, provided that the surface has been prepared properly.
Q. How do I prepare a surface for the peel and stick veneer?
A. The surface that you stick the peel and stick veneer sheet down to must be clean and free of dirt and dust. Do not stick the veneer directly to a raw wooden surface. We recommend that you apply a couple of coats of varnish or paint to a raw wooden surface, let dry.
Let the varnish dry. Then, sand it lightly. Apply the second coat of varnish and let it dry. Sand it lightly.
Q. How Do I Stick The Veneer Down To The Substrate?
A. Cut the veneer sheet a little larger than the surface that you are veneering. Peel off the release paper.
Then, stick the veneer sheet down to the prepared surface.
Use a 1” wide blunt piece of wood or a 1” wallpaper seam roller to apply pressure to the veneered surface.
Q. Will a peel and stick wood veneer sheet stick to vinyl, Formica, paper, or shiny surfaces?
A. Yes, but you must prepare the surface properly. Surfaces that are shiny or smooth, such as Formica, should be scuff sanded first. If the surface is paper, such as imitation wood grain, you should paint or varnish the paper surface with a couple of coats. Let dry. Then apply the peel and stick veneer.
Q. How do I get an exact fit of the veneer to my work piece?
A. Cut the veneer sheet to ½” larger on all sides than your workpiece. Stick the veneer sheet down. Trim off the excess with a razor knife.
Q. Can the 3M adhesive on a peel and stick veneer be damaged or loosened by a finish that seeps through to the glue layer?
A. The 3M peel and stick adhesive is nearly impervious to damage by a finish that seeps through to the glue layer.
