The material Complite consists of natural wood veneer (birch and beech), impregnated with resin. The laminated reinforced wood has two to three times the strength of normal wood by compressing it at an elevated temperature and pressure, hardening the wood cells. The material is coloured during the manufacturing process, and the wood grain remains visible.
The material can be processed like wood. Its water absorption is low, and it can be used for a wide range of products, from furniture to the chopsticks.
