FAQ

What is DymaLux?

DymaLux is a dyed birch laminate resin-impregnated with phenolic resin. It’s used mostly for knife handles, pistol grips, billiard products, and game calls. It's waterproof, extremely dense, and harder than virtually any natural hardwood on Earth. DymaLux requires no finish to keep its original look and durability.

What is Spectraply?

SpectraPly is a Grade A, dyed birch laminate. It is layered into a variety of color patterns and bonded together with PVA glue. SpectraPly is used worldwide for many things like pepper mills, bottle stoppers, baseball bats, and rifle stocks.

What is the difference between Spectraply and DymaLux?

SpectraPly and DymaLux have different adhesives and different pressures applied in the press. Where DymaLux is pressed with more pressure and bonded with phenolic resin it is denser and harder adding 30% weight by volume. DymaLux has a strong resistance to water where SpectraPly does not.

How do I prevent colors from bleeding?

Sometimes color "bleed" can occur within SpectraPly when dark colors are adjacent to light colors.  Here are a few tips to prevent this from happening.

  • Make sure all dust is blown out of the piece with compressed air.

  • If possible, sanding the piece in reverse can help.

  • Use a sanding sealer.

  • Use an oil-based finish.
