Compared to the first generation of 9 mm VENDIA marine plank, VENDIA Pro has eight veneer layers in total instead of seven in the normal VENDIA marine plank. VENDIA Pro consists of six lengthwise and two cross veneers, whereas normal 9 mm VENDIA marine plank consists of five lengthwise and two cross veneers. Lengthwise core veneers are still 1.2 mm thick in VENDIA Pro but cross veneers are now thinner, only 0.6 mm. In the normal VENDIA marine plank all the cross veneers are 1.2 mm thick. Face veneer thickness is 1.5 mm in both, normal VENDIA and VENDIA Pro. All the veneers are sliced.
First comments from the boatbuilders who have tested VENDIA Pro have been very positive. As one of the boatbuilders said: “I don’t know how a marine plank could be any better.”
