1. 1Plywood

    Plywood

    It’s strength, low cost and aesthetic appeal make plywood an ideal material for a vast array of applications including furniture, architectural joinery & cabinetry. We offer a number of ply variety and grades, and commonly recommend BB/BB grade birch ply as it combines good value, strength and finish. If you require a specific type of plywood with particular structural or aesthetic characteristics, we can source most panels on the market. We cut sheets in thicknesses of  3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 24 & 30mm and we can laminate to form thicker panels.  Current 1220x2440mm sheet prices (excluding VAT) are:

  2. 2MDF & Valchromat

    MDF & Valchromat

    Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) is an easily machined material that provides a stable surface finish for painting, powder coating and laminating.   Its low cost makes it a widely used material. We supply a number of MDF variants manufactured by Medite: Premier, which is standard MDF. Moisture Resistant (MR) has a denser core so provides a cleaner and crisper cut edges. Fire resistant (FR), Exterior, Vent and Ultralite are also available. Please see Medite‘s website for product details and spec sheets. For general use we stock and recommend moisture resistant (MR) MDF even in dry applications as the edge finish is smoother and less spongy than regular MDF, making for a better finish. Current 1220×2440 sheet prices (excluding VAT) are:

    Medite/Kronospan MR MDF
    3mm        £8.05
    4mm        £9.50
    6mm      £11.80
    9mm      £14.00

    18mm    £23.00
    22mm    £28.50
    25mm    £34.00
    30mm    £39.50

    We also cut solid colour MDF manufactured by Valchromat in an array of 12 colours. These combine wood fibers with dye so the colour is present throughout the depth of the board. Current 1250×2500 sheet prices (excluding VAT) are:

    8mm        £42.00
    12mm      £51.00
    16mm      £65.00

    30mm    £130.00

     

  3. 3Veneers & Laminates

    Veneers & Laminates

    We press native and exotic real wood veneers and high pressure laminates (HPL) onto the faces of MDF or plywood. We recommend PolyreyFormica & BrentLam HPL’s, and their current range and swatches can be viewed on their respective websites. The vast selection of decors include bright and mute colours, metallics, patterns and woodgrains. The laminates are applied to the substrate before parts are CNC cut and create clean and robust panels typically used in kitchens, office and various domestic and commercial applications.

  4. 4Solid Timber

    Solid Timber

    We cut, route and carve softwoods and exotic hardwoods. We are experienced at matching timber species to the right cutting bit, speed and feed-rate to provide excellent surface finish.  Maple, sycamore and beech are good timbers to carve, and we regularly CNC route oak, walnut, tulipwood and sapele.

  5. 5Aluminium & ACM

    Aluminium & ACM

    Good machinability and stability make aluminium an ideal choice material for a wide variety of applications.  We machine shapes in flat aluminium sheet and offer certain milling operations in aluminium plate.  We cut and miter fold ACM or aluminium composite material, a popular material used in sign-making, displays and exhibitions.  It is available in a large selection of colours and decors, and is made from a PE plastic core with thin coated aluminium on each face.

  6. 6Foams

    Foams

    Polystyrene, extruded polyurethane and expanded polypropelene foams are ideal for making sculptural, artistic and architectural models and landscapes. We use high density polyurethane foam to make moulds and patterns for casting.

  7. 7Plastics

    Plastics

    We make precision and functional parts and products using PVC, Acetal, Acrylic, Nylon, Teflon, Polycarbonate and PetG.  Please contact us with regard to the machinability of other specific plastics. We can help select the right material for your parts by considering the strength, temperature, shock resistance, durability, elasticity, toxicity, chemical resistance and humidity absorption requirements.
