Kerfkore - Particle Board Kore 2 Sided 48 x 96 x 3/4
These are amazingly flexible substrates. All Kerfkore products are priced per square foot. Kerfkore provides a smooth and symmetrical inside and outside radii. The face paper is a black latex impregnated paper with a particleboard substrate. It accepts horizontal or vertical grade laminates, metals and phenolic backed veneers. Laminate flat and then form into virtually any shape without stress cracks, delamination or telegraphing.
PRODUCT CHARACTERISTICS Kerfkore allows for the flat lamination of semi-rigid face materials that can then be bent and formed into the needed shape. Materials such as high pressure laminates (vertical, post formable, standard), two-ply veneer, phenolic backed veneer, metal, and other similar material works extremely well with Kerfkore.
The ability to laminate flat offers the advantages of ease of positioning face material, uniform laminating pressure, labor savings and improved quality. Easy splicing method for additional width or length is simply accomplished by aligning the core material and then applying the face material. After lamination Kerfkore can be made rigid by laminating another piece of material to the open side while the part is formed to shape.
This is easily accomplished using a vacuum press or other forming method. The use of a PVA adhesive for this lamination is preferred as this will provide a very strong bond. After forming, edge banding can be applied to the open kerfed edges to provide a finished product.
