Synthetic Ivory and Ebony
Vesconite Hilube and Vesconite will give a beautiful finish to sculptures, knives, handgrips, clocks, and scientific and musical instruments, both modern and antique.
Three finishes are available depending on the Vesconite grade used:
Vesconite Hilube which is ivory coloured. A fine polished finish is easily obtained.
Vesconite Matt, produced from mouldings of standard Vesconite. Vesconite Matt has a matt charcoal black finish. A fine polished finish is easily obtained.
Vesconite Marbelite, produced from extrusions of Vesconite. Vesconite Marbelite has an attractive and intriguing slightly translucent marble quality. A fine polished finish is easily obtained.
Cutting, sawing, sanding and polishing Vesconite does not present safety hazards as it contains no hazardous substances or dangerous fibres.
Vesconite is pleasant, smooth and warm to the touch, extremely hard wearing, not easily scuffed due to its high hardness and special wear resistant qualities.
