NUVACOR™ is a full range surfacing material
for use in vertical as well as horizontal applications.

MANUFACTURER
Nuvacor Corporation

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
NUVACOR™ is the result of a 20 year, evolutionary process which began with a product called Vitricor®, sold by the Nevamar Division of International Paper.

NUVACOR™ is a product that uses sophisticated proprietary technology developed exclusively by us and for our exclusive use.

The original product, Vitricor®, was developed as a durable substitute for lacquer. In its vertical grade quality it is approx. 60% as hard as glass and in its horizontal or hardcoated grade quality it is approx. 95% as hard as glass.

The original research led to a product that was usable as an environmentally friendly yet significantly more durable substitute for lacquer. Further research led to the use of metalized pigments that allowed for color hues not possible with simple solid color pigment technology. The challenge was to achieve the metalized look without rendering it garish, something, which we humbly feel, we have successfully achieved.

In the early 90's, we began the work of producing finishes that would resemble organic materials such as woods or stones. Unlike most s of wood grains or stones, which look and feel nothing like the real thing, our product was able to achieve the look of a lacquered wood panel or highly polished stone block which when applied as a finished product is so real looking as to deceive the viewer.

Further research and development led us to explore the use of high definition photographic technology, enabling us to reproduce images of such high definition and photorealistic quality as to belie one's imagination.

Thus the evolution of our 4th generation product, which we call NUVACOR™. It is a high molecular weight sheet that has one of the most durable and stain resistant finishes on the market. In its table surface grade (horizontal/hardcoated), it is 95% as hard as glass and yet is totally shatter proof. Because of its dense molecular structure the near perfect Silken Glass finish is virtually hydroscopically inert and therefore highly appropriate for use in areas where hygiene is a factor. In its high-definition photographic incarnation, the luminescence and depth of color and image achieved, almost gives the photographic image a three-dimensional quality. It is a product that combines the reflective gloss and other visual attributes typical of hand lacquered surfaces with high- performance characteristics and straightforward fabrication techniques.

Solid colors, metallic or non-metallic, woodgrains, stones, granites or 'abstracts'. photographic imagery, or corporate logos pose no significant hurdles for NUVACOR™.

NUVACOR™ GRADES & PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

 Acrylic Panels 1/8" - 3mm - Uncoated/Vertical
 *See additional technical specifications in the accompanying specification pages

 Our Uncoated Acrylic Panels offer superior transparency and significant surface performance features that include  reparability of small surface abrasions. This panel is rigid enough that it can be applied on suitable vertical surfaces  (e.g.walls) with the simple use of commonly available contact cements or for certain suitable applications, even 2-sided  adhesive tapes.

 Acrylic Panels 1/8" - 3mm - Hardcoated/Horizontal
 *See additional technical specifications in the accompanying specification pages

 Our Hardcoated Acrylic Panels are primarily intended for use on Horizontal Surfaces (Table surfaces) or in high traffic areas  where additional abrasion resistance and chemical resistance are desirable.
 This panel is unique in that it offers surface hardness unequaled by most acrylic products in the marketplace. It's superior  chemical resistance makes it ideal in commercial environments, especially food service environments where aromatic food  staining is a problem for most competitive products such as High Pressure Laminates and Wood

 Polycarbonate Panels 3mm and .020mm film

 Our Polycarbonate Panel is intended for most outdoor uses where superior shatterproof and vandal proof applications are  required.
 This material is impossible to shatter and will withstand the harshest tests of vandalism. .020 thickness was developed  specifically for cold forming applications where extremely tight radiuses are required.

(1) Uncoated NUVACOR™ is readily attacked by these solvents. Take care to avoid their use both during their fabrication and or on finished surfaces.
(2) In layman terms these numbers denote superior non staining features. Common food stains such as mustard, ketchup, tea, coffee, red wine will have no effect on NUVACOR™, unlike the effects they have on most marbles, woods and High Pressure Laminates.

Although Personally, i choose Container replica watches sale on the band. If you prefer a replica watches uk which also offers a good in-house created motion after that you might like to consider the rolex replica sale that expenses just $300 much more as well as occurs the band. Additionally, it includes a rolex replica sale burlier as well as larger-sized case, in addition to a little bit much less of the conventional Container case appear. Although for a lot of the best replica watches is actually on the straps. Talking about the actual straps I love that it's each slim as well as tapered, however Let me observe Cartier provide a locking deployant, as opposed to fake watches simply the strain hold they've been utilizing for a long time upon numerous Cartier replica sale.
