Kinetic Composites can provide the
following surface finishes for all compression laminated panels and
some molded components:
Weave is the

is achieved by using a very light-weight fiberglass scrim cloth in
the outer layers. The
cloth can be pigmented or treated to achieve various visual effects.
Typically, the surface finish is smooth and high gloss.
Effects can be added to laminated panels and are available in a
variety of sizes, colors and densities. Glitter is generally applied
over a plain weave or matte outer layer and gloss finished to
highlight the effect.
||Peel Ply is
used when a textured surface is desirable, such as knife handles and
pistol grips. Peel Ply
finishes are also used in bonding applications to remove the need
for sanding and increase contact surface area.
Peel Ply is available in both plain weave and matte.
