How many pounds of raw paper = How many panels?
Yield per pound depends on the basis weight of the paper. For a quick estimate, normally 1 pound = 1 decorative sheet. For specific details on raw paper yield, contact a customer service representative.
Why can’t you mix resin systems on a panel?
Too much variance in resin systems top to bottom, could translate to different weighted sheets on top and bottom. This could lead to an imbalanced panel which contributes to warp. To learn more about warp, visit our reference library.
What is the minimum number of pounds to qualify for a special design match?
We work with a variety of printers, and the minimum average run size of a new design is approximately 2000-3000 lbs. For an initial launch, most will agree to 1700 lbs for a premium.
How many pounds of a solid color qualify for a special match?
3000-5000 lbs is typically a very small run for matching a solid color. The cost benefit of ‘matching’ a solid becomes more evident , the higher the volume.
What is your average lead-time, especially for NAF product?
Our average lead-time is 2 weeks for most materials. NAF product is currently produced at least twice a month by most of our board mill partners. So NAF lead-time could extend to 3 weeks depending on stock and production cycle.
What is the thickness of the paper per side?
For typical basis weight papers impregnated in a standard resin, the average thickness of the paper is .004 of an inch per sheet.
