WCB and FS can both be cut easily with a hand saw, and you don’t need to take any special steps. In fact, you’ll likely find that your saw lasts longer when compared to cutting materials like MDF or MFC.
When working with a CNC router machine to cut WCB, we suggest using an up-cut router bit. As a starting point, you might consider using a cutter speed of 18,000 RPM and a feed speed of 5 meters per minute for a 6mm single-flute up-cut router bit. But, of course, it’s always best to test your own tooling when working with WCB to find the perfect settings for your specific equipment.
Mishaps are bound to happen, right? That’s why WCB is the perfect partner for all your sheet and cabinet needs. Let’s say you accidentally drop or hit something onto a panel, leaving a dent. Don’t worry! With WCB, you can easily repair the surface as long as the outer skin isn’t broken. Just gradually warm the area using a heat gun, taking care not to burn the surface. A light sand can be used to remove any residual marks from the damage.
And what about those pesky scratches? No need to stress! With an orbital sander and a fine sanding pad, you can easily remove any scratches on the panel. We would recommend using a grit between 320-800 depending on the severity. It’s that simple! Whether you’re a professional builder or a DIY enthusiast, WCB has got you covered.
If you’re looking to bend or shape WCB or FS, you can use thermoforming equipment to achieve the desired outcome. However, since thermoforming is a specialized manufacturing process, we suggest trying out Sealwise products on your equipment first to ensure they work well together. By the way, if you need samples, feel free to give us a call, and we’ll be happy to send some your way.
If you’re looking to attach WCB to other materials like wooden panels or posts, don’t worry; the installation process doesn’t have to be any different from what you’re used to. It’s actually pretty straightforward.
Basically, all you have to do is follow the same steps you would for a typical installation. You’ll need to make sure that the surface you’re attaching the WCB to is clean and free from any debris or dust. Then, use fasteners to secure the WCB in place.
It’s really that simple! Whether you’re attaching the WCB to a wooden panel or a post, the process remains the same. Just make sure you have the right tools and materials on hand, and you’ll be good to go.
When it comes to using screws with Sealwise products, there’s no need to stress about it. Working with WCB or FS is actually quite similar to working with regular wood, so you can use the same techniques and tools you’re used to. The great thing about Sealwise products is that it’s even more forgiving than traditional wood. You can feel confident using any type of screw you have on hand with Sealwise products.
Sealwise W14 solvent is recommended when producing products from WCB as it creates watertight chemically welded joints. If you’re planning to bond Sealwise products to a wall or any other substrate, we’d suggest using a neoprene contact adhesive. It’s a great option because it works well with the smooth surface of Sealwise products and won’t cause any problems. Just apply the adhesive to both surfaces and press them together firmly for a strong bond.
To paint Sealwise Products for an indoor home project, you can use regular emulsion paint. But, if you’re working on an outdoor project, it’s better to use primers and weather-resistant paints to ensure durability and longevity. If you’re planning to paint Sealwise Products in a spray booth, we recommend using a PU-based paint for optimal long-term performance.
Whether you’re trying to adhere a decorative HPL to Sealwise or join two Sealwise sheets to increase their thickness, the process is quite similar. You can achieve excellent long-term waterproofing by using a neoprene-based contact adhesive. So you can rest easy, knowing that Sealwise will perform just as well as you expect it to!
If you’re planning to use a beam saw to cut Sealwise products and want some guidance on the working parameters, we’d recommend using a fine tooth blade with scribe and a speed of up to 50 meters per minute. However, we also suggest that you try it out on your own machinery to get the best results from your own tooling.
