RockitLam sheet size
- 12 x 47”
Use Titebond III only (not contact cement).
Glue up a RockitLam sheet along with your wood veneers and press in the TAP bag for a tight lamination.
Pad the four corners of the sheet with strips of masking tape before pressing to prevent the sharp corners from puncturing the TAP bag.
This material is tough durable stuff, no maintenance required.
Q: What is RockitLam?
A: It is a plastic or metal-clad laminate.
Q: Why not get this at a builders’ supply?
A: You can, however Roarockit has sourced a thinner stock that is suitable for bending over radical shapes of a skateboard.
Q: Can I paint it?
A: Yes but most paints will slide right off. What works best is to first prime the painted areas with a blocking paint like Kilz® (spray or liquid).
Q: How much does it weigh?
A: It weighs about the same or slightly less than a sheet of maple veneer. Weights differ due to varying thicknesses and materials: Mirror: 1 lb 5 oz, Bubble Wrap: 1 lb 1 oz, Plain Colors/Patterns: 15.9 oz
Q: Can I get other styles?
A: From time to time, we refresh our stocks with new RockitLam
