A full thickness wood faced material that can be easily formed first and laminated last.

Timberflex is ideal for custom fabrication because it is the first and only high-quality 3/4" bendable panel that has a three-ply Italian poplar face ready to paint or laminate without the need for patching or sanding.

Timberflex panels can bend to a 5" radius and are perfectly flat without dips, valleys, and hard spots that are often found in bendable plywood.

Timberflex is dimensionally sized to have the same thickness throughout to assure excellent seam hiding characteristics.

Timberflex performs extremely well in traditional custom fabrication by forming the panel to the desired shape and then painting or laminating with the desired face material. This simple method allows Timberflex to conform to your custom shape by the use of horizontal shaping ribs. It was designed so that even a beginner can easily make curved components.

Timberflex is produced from engineered wood products and will provide a dimensionally stable panel that is consistent in performance and uniformity. It provides the fabricator with the knowledge of knowing how the product will perform time after time.

Timberflex provides a higher quality end product and offers a multitude of advantages over conventional bending methods including less labor, no veneer checking or telegraphing, elimination of sanding, patching and laying up multiple layers of plywood. Additional benefits include never "springing back" and always "hanging true."

Any contact cement recommended for use with decorative laminates or veneer should be acceptable. Use of PVA glue is also acceptable for attaching face material provided it can be used after the Timberflex has been formed and adequate pressure applied. The Timberflex can be formed and held in position with the use of most any adhesives and staples when necessary. The use of horizontal ribs for attachment is preferred.

When applying a face material to Timberflex with contact adhesive, light to moderate pressure is adequate. Firm hand pressure or moderate pressure with a J-roller works well. When using a PVA glue, make sure the glue is transferred to both materials and that adequate uniform pressure can be applied for the required amount of time.

Timberflex is available in 4'x8' and 8'x4' panel sizes and comes in 1/2", 5/8" and 3/4" thicknesses.

“The Kerfkore Foamkore product was the perfect material for the art piece I wanted to create. I needed something that had a physically and visually substantial structure, while being lightweight at the same time and this material had it all. The people at Kerfkore were extremely helpful and excited to help me achieve my vision, working with me to choose the product that would best suit my needs and to have the sheets cut to my particular specifications. Not only was the material's structure perfect, it did not require heavy duty jointing or extra reinforcements; I found that the joints in my sculptures adhered very well with a strong wood glue alone! Once my sculptures were complete, I was able to move them, place them and interact with them in the various environments I chose without any problem - instead of worrying about my sculptures breaking, I needed only to worry whether they would fit in my vehicle. I am really happy to have found and worked with this company ... they were a huge part of my success in this project.”
