The Resin Artisan Collection Finishing Techniques
Installation of Hybrid-Resin products are as easy as working with wood products. Why is that? Because all of our Hybrid Mouldings are made from Maple Hardwood and Resin. Hybrid-Resin products are consistent in their density without the knots, warping, or cupping that make cutting wood sometimes difficult. Nailing, cutting and gluing any of our products can be performed with all STANDARD WOODWORKING TOOLS & GLUES. GLUING - Always use glue or adhesive for a permanent bond. Most woodworking glues and adhesives will work with resin products. NAILING - Use only 23 gauge pneumatic nail guns when nailing THERESINARTISANCOLLECTION components. Using larger nails on polyester resin will cause parts to crack or shatter. Larger nail guns can be used for superflex mouldings and on the wood portions of hybrid mouldings. SCREWS - Larger components will need to be attached with screws. When using screws pre-drilling is required to prevent cracking or splitting. Any wood screw will work, but trim head screws are the easiest to hide. FILLING -Any nail or screw holes can be filled with standard wood putty or Bondo. The use of 23 gauge nails virtually eliminates the need to fill nail holes. Any gaps, cracks or joints in resin product installations can be filled the same way as wood products with putty, caulk or our favorite bondo.
