Phenolic board
« on: January 23, 2009, 07:56 PM »
I am looking for an odd little bit of material here....I know I can search the internet...get it ordered...but here's the deal.  I need this material for work TOMORROW.  What I am looking for is a phenolic (Or similar type material) board of around .020 thickness.  If you are interested in knowing what for...it is for a foil embossing machine (Kluge brand).  The phenolic board is double faced onto an anvil plate.  The die is opposite.  A two part resin material is poured onto the phenolic board to then be baked together with the die.  This makes a counter die and then paper and foil together pass through the middle and get impressioned together and the foil gets embossed onto the paper.  ..like a silver dollar in this case...  You will probably get this in your mail box not long from now... : )  Yep...I'm responsible for junk mail. 

So anyway....got any ideas where I could find something like this? I tried hobby lobby and radio shack (via phone...I might stop in) but they were clueless...

I think I have this material, but my sheets are about 7/8" think.  That proably won't help.  I'm in SW MI, if I can help.

Woodcraft carries phenolic in two thickness, IIRC.  But probably not the thickness you need.

Sounds like an interesting process.
The one who says it can't be done should avoid interrupting the person doing it.

If woodcraft doesn't work out, check with local cabinetmakers.  There's usually a place within a couple hours drive that sells all kinds of plywoods.  The hours are usually inconvenient, but the prices are much better than places like woodcraft.
