Stabilized Flamed Poplar
Raffir stabilized flamed poplar is an elegant choice for handles and inlays. Flamed wood has a smooth curly grain structure, and every piece is unique. Still each variation is natural and beautiful. All our flamed poplar is forested in Europe, and each piece is carefully selected before stabilization.
Variations and properties
Stabilized flamed poplar has the unique grain structure of the untreated wood. Meanwhile, it obtains mechanical advantages from the strong resin compound. We stabilize flamed poplar in ten colors: natural, yellow, orange, red, purple, lime, green, blue, brown and black. Raffir stabilized wood has high durability and obtains a high gloss finish after polishing. It absorbs very little water and has low swelling and shrinkage at different humidity. The material has a smooth surface and needs no other finishing than fine sanding and polishing.
Our standard handle blocks are 120*40*25mm, while handle scales are 120*40*8mm. Custom dimensions are also available for other purposes. We can cut up to the size of our finished raw blocks. The raw blocks differ in size because of their organic nature. However, they are normally up to 260*200*60mm. You are welcome to contact us for further information. Or you can ask our retailers for their current availability.
