Resin is a molded product that is used commonly in place of wood products. The reason being is that with Resin you can achieve exacting details and stain it just like real wood. It is a little easier to work with than wood and is less expensive.
Hybrid-Resin can be stained, painted, or faux finished to the finishers likings. You can also use Hybrid-Resin on interior or exterior applications.
Installation of Hybrid-Resin
Installation of Hybrid-Resin products is just as easy as working with wood products. Why is that? Because all of our Hybrid
Resin Moldings are made from Maple Hardwood and Resin. Hybrid-Resin products are consistent in their density without knots or surprises that make cutting wood sometimes difficult. Nailing, cutting and gluing any of our products can be performed with all STANDARD WOODWORKING TOOLS & GLUES.
Pneumatic nail guns are used extensively during Research and Development. We recommend micro-pinners because of their very fine headless nails, which virtually eliminates filling holes and greatly reduces any splitting when nailing the more delicate parts in our catalog. Some installations may require screws to be used. All holes can be filled with standard wood putty or bondo.
Resin products can be applied to any material using standard wood glues and adhesives. Drying times and the amount of glue used is the same as with wood. We recommend Tite-Bond II waterproof wood glue. Our research and development department has tested numerous glues and adhesives during our development of new products and has not found a better or more economical wood glue for the money. If any of your installations require a stronger bond, we recommend any of the commercially available wood floor adhesives.
