How do you bend plywood?

There are a number of ways but the best idea is to start by using our Superform bending plywood.

We also have the flexible veneers to compliment the plywoods.

Both of these examples have used what we call cross or short grain, which means the grain is along the 1220mm direction.
The sheet size is the old 8' x 4" or 2.44mtrs x 1.22mtrs, the grain can be supplied either long or short direction. The thickness stocked is 3mm, 5mm and 8mm, the product is CE aprooved, its also water proof.

Pictures are from our suppliers.

Stone Form veneer sheeting

This will be available in some sixteen types, slate and stone on a GRP backer.
The sheet size is 600mm x 1200mm and with the backer only 2mm thick. It will be available on a light ply backer as well, either 6mm or 12mm backer and plus the Stone Form type you choose.

The end use is open to your mind, suitable for commercial and domestic projects, it can even be machine Post Formed to do counter tops and doors.

With its light weight there is no panic on construction support and it will be easy to apply to a normal dry wall construction.

Available in Cape Town soon!

The data and fixing sheets are available right now, contact me for copies.

A new Flicka 20 launch in Hout Bay

Yacht Flee has just splashed and one hour ago! based on the Flicka 20 she is the South African alternative.

These were available as either hull deck and bulkheads, or as a sail away yacht, we had the rights but as orders were not coming in we gave them up.

We did supply a lot of materials to this build, epoxy, woven biaxial glass cloth, 3M micro balloons and fumed silicas.

What we can supply to this design is the hull templates as MDF (supawood) CNC cut for you to strip plank your own hull from. The last price was R7000, thats only U$700 at todays exchange rate!
