Architectural Laminated Panels Cutting Instructions
> Decorative materials made of natural laminated materials on 5mm marine plywood using one component PVA glue.
Size:1.22M x 2.44M (4’x 8′)
Thickness: 6 – 9 mm
Interior: Ceiling, Wall Panel, Partitions, Doors, Columns
Furniture: Cabinets, Head Board, Foot Board, Table Tops, Bars
Saw Cutting Tool:
Circular Saw 120 teeth speed (RPM) 2,800. Finer teeth & higher speed will have better result in cutting.
Router Cutting: Recommended speed is ‘more than 20,000 RPM
Jigsaw Cutting: Use blade #1 with finer teeth
> To prevent the materials from chipping-off, apply paper masking tape on the area to be cut.
> Chipped materials can be retouched/repaired by using fast glue or cyanoacrylate adhesive.
> After cutting, rough edges can be sanded using power tool with grit #50 grinding disc or
hand sanding using grit # 100 sand paper.
> Fastening – Wood screw is recommended or combination of glue & screw

To prevent plywood, bamboo and coco from chipping off, apply paper masking tape on the area to be cut.
Chipped materials can be retouched/ repaired by using fast glue or cyanoacrylate adhesive.
Router Cutting – speed recommended is more than 20,000 RPM
Drilling – should be done at the corner of the coco shell chips as the coco shell chips are curve, so there is a space between the coco chips and the plywood on the center part. The drill pressure on the center part may cause the coco shell chips broken. But if it will be drilled on the center part, use of router or trimmer is recommended.
After cutting, rough edges can be sanded using power tool with grit # 50 grinding disc or hand sanding using grit # 100 sand paper.
Wood screw on the center part is needed use the following method:
Make a hole on the coco shell as big as screw head or more using router or trimmer then make a hole as big as the screw body on the plywood part in order the screw will only pinch the plywood part.
Close the hole on the coco shell part by using Timbermate water based wood putty, select putty color similar to coco shell’s color.
Above procedures are also suitable to any Bamboo Laminated Panels and Cirkulo Collections.
Proper Handling of Architectural Laminated Panels
- Make sure that all 4 sides (corners) of Architectural Laminated Panels do not hit any hard objects that may damage the panels during handling.
- If panels will be carried in lying position , they must be carried holding on the width side and not on the length side or corner areas as doing so can make the panels break at the center portion.
3.Mishandling of panels and making it bend several times may cause damages on the panel.
- At least 2-3 persons can carry single piece of Architectural Laminated Panels.
