More Information

  • Cuts well and leaves a clean, smooth edge line that typically shows a dark edge due to the high resin content.
  • Is cut without protective tape, which means smoke marks will show.
  • Engraves well but doesn’t show a high contrast between engraved and not engraved areas.
  • It is difficult to capture colour correctly; allow for slight variation from monitor to reality.
  • Thickness can vary by up to 10% as a result of the manufacturing process, so creating interlocking designs can be difficult.
