Plastic laminates in which the top sheet is true wood veneer instead of printed paper are available (Belfort, etc.). The sheets have the authentic depth, warmth and natural beauty of wood, although the grain is filled with resin and the natural texture is lost. In all other respects, methods of manufacture, toughness, durability, resistance to heat, moisture, acids, stains, etc., and cutting and gluing/bonding procedures are identical, while the cost compares favourably with that of other laminates.
