Veneering over Acrylic

Veneering over Acrylic

Question:

Has anyone used a veneer on acrylic panels? I wonder if I need to do more than scuff the acrylic to make a good bond. Plus, would I need a special contact cement? Thanks for any input.

Answer:


Yes you can veneer over acrylic. You may have to use a water based contact cement because a solvent based cement may react with the acrylic panel. You should probably do a test before using either of the two types of contact adhesive. Another option for you would be to use the 3M self stick adhesive veneers. This is an ideal situation for the pressure sensitive 3M adhesive.
