dehonit is a material manufactured to DIN 7707 and DIN 68705. Only veneers of red beech (Fagus silvatica) of selected quality are used bonded together under heat and pressure using a special type of phenolic resin. 1

Available grades
For the manufacturing of piano parts we have developed different grades, as listed below. They have proved successful in thousands of instruments at home and abroad. In addition we can manufacture special dehonit grades upon request.;

dehonit boards should be stored in an enclosed warehouse with constant atmospheric humidity (under 60%). Do not store directly on the ground or close to an outer wall. Protect the boards against direct sunlight (danger of inducing tension) and store by stacking flat one on top of the other on a flat level support with a cover over the top board.

Carbide tipped tools are recommended for machining dehonit laminated compressed wood.
Quality control
dehonit laminated compressed wood boards are intensively controlled at all stages of production. In addition the material undergoes extensive laboratory tests, to ensure that the necessary properties are consistent and maintained from batch to batch.

Dehonit for piano action
The piano action is the heart of the instrument. To achieve consistent high quality over decades, each of the 6,000 components must be made with the greatest of care to be as uniform and as accurate as possible.
