Kerfkore is a superior choice for doing fast, accurate and quality radius projects. It provides the ability to create smooth and symmetrical inside and outside radii down to 3 1/2". Virtually any curve desired can be produced with this product.
Kerfkore saves time and improves quality by first laminating flat and machining flat prior to bending. It is dimensionally stable and holds its shape when formed with a series of horizontal ribs. It can also be formed rigid by laminating a back material to the part while held in the desired shape. An excellent method for this type of lamination is the use of a vacuum press.
Kerfkore is a patented process that consists of a kerfed core material joined with a very flexible latex impregnated paper face. This allows for the flat lamination of high pressure laminates, 2-ply veneers, metals and others semi-rigid face products and then formed into the necessary shapes without any telegraphing, stress cracks or delamination. Kerfkore is ideal for production environments where repetitive products are manufactured. The requirement to produce identical parts in size and performance provides the use of labor saving methods to achieve a high quality predictable end results. Its versatility also allows for those very custom one of a kind applications where artistic results are desired.
Kerfkore is standard with a high quality particleboard core. Core options are available and include fiberboard, luan plywood, poplar plywood, FR core and others.
