Board skins

Postby rynhardt » Sat Aug 12, 2017 5:57 pm

We've recently moved to making the outer layers of the board separately. It's basically a few layers of glass and graphics, infused on glass.
The net result is a cosmetically perfect skin on the outside and a peelply surface on the inside, ready for bonding.
The main advantage, apart from the cosmetics, is that if there is a fu*kup, you only throw away the skin and not the whole board.
Finished an alutex and carbon skin this week, which turned out very nicely..

What sort of boards do you use these on?
I wouldn't imagine you could wrap the skin round the compound curves of the rails of a typical directional?

Twin-Tips only. Any slight curvature we have is sorted out by the vacuum.
