The adaptability of our machines means that we are able to cut into and mould a large variety of quality materials. We're always looking for new and exciting materials, but our most commonly used ones range from wood and timbre composites, to plastics and even more specific mixtures and solid surface blends.
Solid Timbers, Plywood, Hoop Pine, Birch Ply & MDF (Medium-density fibreboard)
Solid Timbers are good for a range of products, but most commonly used for furniture and art pieces, and will generally need an oil post-production to keep it from drying out.
Plywood is also a common material for furniture or display pieces, and always needs to be finished in an exterior grade oil, paint or varnish if it is going to be placed in an outdoor environment.
Birch Ply is exterior grade and sustainable, and has very good acoustic qualities. Hoop Pine is also very sustainable but not used as often.
MDF (medium-density fibreboard) is cheap and great for cabinets in particular (although it is worth bearing in mind that it does contain very low levels of formaldehyde).
Acrylic, Melamine and PVC
Alucobond is a flat and stable composite panel consisting of two aluminium cover sheets and a fire-retardant or non-combustible mineral-filled core. Due to its composite structure, it can take on many different shapes and forms.
It is commonly used for signage purposes and doesn't need any extra treatment or maintenance.
Other materials we commonly work with include:
• Compact Laminate
