Hi Bob and Sonny
My company produces talbe, chair, sideboard, occasional... Some items we have to use flexible plastic moldings (such as a round apron of table). We're having our sub-contractors made the plastic. Now my boss said that I should learn how to make that poly so that we don't have to buy from another.
I'm not good at chemical, what I want is to know how to make a flexible polymer moldings, whatever the shape it is. But the requirement is that the finished poly must have wood grain, easy to bend, and can be painted.
I don't care about the materials, the costs.. I just want to know how to make that plastic (like the 1 option of Bob).
I have: poly (a clear liquid that called poly epoxy), rock powder, clay, play sand. I have mixed them one by one, all together... in many ratios, but what i got was just a very hard plastic, I cannot bend it to the round table apron.
I see that in this forum both of you just talk about finishing. But I have been trying a lot to make that poly, I'm stuck, then I searched "wooden furniture forum" in google, it lead me here.
I appreciate if you can help me.
