3A Composites® Wood-Fiber Veneer Products Help Your Business by Lowering Costs

3A Composites introduced Gator-Ply®, the original specialty engineered man-made wood-fiber veneer, to the furniture market more than 40 years ago. Since then, craftsmen of residential and office furniture and retail-store display fixtures have come to rely upon 3A Composite's high-quality wood-veneer products - backed by outstanding customer and technical service - to lower manufacturing costs, simplify the manufacturing process and enhance furniture and fixture quality.

Today, 3A Composites offers three premiere wood-fiber veneer products for the furniture professional:



Gator-Ply® Backer - We Back Your Business.

Gator-Ply backers are low formaldehyde specialty engineered man-made wood fiber veneers that are impregnated with a proprietary resin system. Gator-Ply backers are used as a balancing medium in both three-ply and five-ply panel construction.

Gator-Ply Green Gator-Backer(TM) is an economic alternative to conventional wood veneers and high-pressure laminates that is manufactured with no added formaldehyde. Gator-Ply Green Gator-Backer has been awarded GREENGUARD Certification, which signifies that this product is in compliance with the stringent emission guidelines set by the Atlanta-based GREENGUARD Environmental Institute.



Syn-Ply® Crossband - The Synthetic Advantage Underneath.

Syn-Ply, the original specialty engineered synthetic crossband man-made wood-fiber veneer, is impregnated with a proprietary resin system that allows it to be used successfully in five-ply panel construction. Syn-Ply crossband is a better alternative to poplar crossband in both residential and office furniture applications.



Luxcell® Backer/Facer - The Backer for Painting or Printing.

Luxcell backers are specialty engineered man-made wood-fiber veneers impregnated with a proprietary resin system. Luxcell products can be used as a backing material and/or facer and can be painted or printed by the furniture manufacturer. Use them in both three-ply and five-ply panel construction.
