    *Corrugated Plastics such as Correx refers to a wide range of extruded twinwall plastic-sheet products produced from high-impact Polypropylene resin with a similar make-up to corrugated fiberboard. They are used in a variety of applications including boat building packaging signage outdoor advertising and the production of pet cages.

    **A soft plastic cardboard made with super soft super flexible PVC.

    ***Gatorfoam® Foam Board a polystyrene foam board bonded between two layers of Luxcell® wood-fiber veneer.

    ****Decorative high-pressure compact laminate (HPL) with an integral surface.

    †Recommendation: Use the slowest suggested feed rates and the shortest bits necessary for cutting and routing Lexan™.

    Benefits of Mirror-Finish:

    • Razor sharp cutting edge
    • Effortless chip removal
    • Helps prevent chip re-welding
    • Extends tool life
    • Exceptional cut quality
    • Dissipates heat well and
      prevents melting

    Our Spektra™ bits feature a nACo® nanocomposite coating with an extreme nanohardness and heat resistance. With a brilliant distinctively-tinted coloring nACo provides additional improvements in four critical aspects of router tooling.

    • nACo coating is a micro-thin ceramic coating which enables the tool's cutting edge to retain crucial sharpness and lubricity. This provides longevity and produces cutting results of the highest quality.
    • Coating prevents high heat and oxidation which is detrimental to cutting tool performance.
    • Multi-colored hues, while attractive, will dissipate upon use and yet coating will remain fully effective.
    • nACo offers approximately 4,500 Vickers for impressive solid hardness on cutting areas of the tool, for an increase up to 2.5 times compared to uncoated bits.

    Note: Blue based color dissipates immediately upon use. nACo® nanocomposite coating will not wear off.
