The Raffir brand is founded in Denmark by Jacob Schou Madsen & Michael Sort Mouritsen (Raffir ApS). The main idea of the company is to supply beautiful resin reinforced materials for high-grade products in various industries. We have more than 15 years of experience in resin treatment of natural materials. We also have a lot of experience with different resin types. This has resulted in the development of our own compounds of thermoset resins – each specialized for its purpose.
Our designs, research and new materials are all created by Raffir ApS in Denmark. Here we are also responsible for production of Raffir Fossils and Raffir Wood. In 2012 Yangdong Raffir Hardware Plastics & CO. Ltd was founded with guidelines and quality control by Raffir Denmark. This company is responsible for production of Raffir Composites. In 2018 we partnered up with Santa Fe Stonework in New Mexico and founded Raffir USA to supply the increasing interest for our materials in the States. Finally, in 2019 our latest partner Henning Rohde joined the company and invested in a new and better Danish facility. Henning’s family business is a large auto paint shop. This gives him life long experience in lacquers and various surface treatments, which strengthens the future product developments in Raffir.
Each product in the three material categories (Raffir Fossils, Raffir Wood and Raffir Composites) has the unique aesthetics of the natural raw material it is based on. Furthermore, the resin treatment improves the mechanical properties, reduces degradation, and results in an overall more homogeneous material suited for many applications, in which aesthetic, durability and machinability are important factors (See the individual product category descriptions for further information on machining the materials).
The Raffir materials are used for various products such as: knife handles, gun grips, jewelry, musical instruments, eyewear and accessories.
The standard dimensions and color options for the materials are written for each product category. However, all orders are custom-processed, which gives the possibility of making the materials in custom dimensions to fit your needs.
