NBL® laminates provide the custom woodworker with superior flexibility and performance when compared to other wood-backed products. NBL®'s patented 3-ply construction produces an extremely pliable, moisture-resistant sheet without the black edge associated with phenolic and foil backers. Minor substrate imperfections are "absorbed" and hidden by NBL®'s thermo-set joined face and parallel grain, all-wood-backer. Ease of application and over 100 different species and cuts make NBL® wood-on-wood laminate the proven choice for trouble-free projects.
